Redondo Beach, CA (August 5, 2014) – Do you want to take a journey into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century? Get ready to travel through decades of the music, moods, and grooves of James Brown with Universal’s new release, Get on Up. Body Glove International had a helping hand in quenching the thirst of the cast and crew on the set of Get On Up, by providing their self-filtering water bottles.

Get on Up is a chronicle of James Brown’s rise from extreme poverty to become one of the most influential musicians in history. Transforming the actors and environment into another time to tell Brown’s story was hard work on the Mississippi set of Get on Up. The forward-thinking production team was very environmentally conscious and wanted to minimize the use of plastic water bottles on set. Body Glove was happy to be a part of keeping the cast and crew hydrated (without the plastic) with their Body Glove Filter Bottles.

Body Glove’s Filter Bottles have a built-in filter that provides clean, safe & great tasting water from any source (except the ocean).  Our new 20 oz. bottle produces up to 100 gallons of filtered water per cartridge.  This is the perfect way for anyone to stay hydrated while on-the-go:  hiking, biking, travel, and any situation where you would have the burden of buying bottled water.  For the 75% of water consumed away from home, this is a great sustainable solution.

“It is great that they chose to use our filter bottles on the set,” Russ Lesser, President of Body Glove says. “Single use plastic bottles are one of the worst things for the environment.  Only about 10% get recycled, and the rest wind up in landfills and in the ocean.  The fish eat the plastic and we eat the fish and you can figure out the rest.  My family has used these bottles in China, Mexico and in the mountains, and never had a problem, even where there are signs that say ‘don’t drink the tap water.”

The dangerously funky Get on Up is in theatres now!
