OUR COMPANY

Lavit offers the Cooler Water Cooler™, a highly eco-, space, trash and energy efficient way to encourage everyone to stay hydrated, healthy and productive. The Lavit Cooler dispenses chilled, filtered, still and sparking water and crafts flavored waters and other low/no sugar beverages from our exclusive EcoCaps™–the world's first 100% recyclable aluminum beverage capsules. All beverages from EcoCaps can be made still or sparkling and users can even customize the flavor and carbonation intensity, ensuring everyone can stay fully hydrated in their own personal way. Lavit also supports One Drop, a charity providing clean drinking water to those in need. Replace your heavy bottles and cans in your workplace with Lavit and give everyone a sacrifice-free way to benefit themselves and the world around them. That is Life Unbottled!
 

What Does LavIt Mean? 

Lavit's name takes its roots from its European cousins “vita” or life, “vit” or lives, and “vite” or speed.  The name Lavit is inspired by the ideas these words evoke.  We also like the fact that Lavit is an anagram for the word “vital”.
 

How Does LavIt Help Those In Need Gain Access to Clean Water? 

The idea of giving back was a founding principle of Lavit. People who have access to a Lavit Cooler stay hydrated and healthier, and so we wanted to help bring that same experience to those with limited or no access to clean drinking water. Lavit donates a portion of every EcoCap sale to One Drop to support this charity’s many clean drinking water projects around the world.  Click here to learn more about One Drop. 


OUR COOLER

What are the key benefits of installing a Lavit Cooler in my workplace break room?

  • Hydration and Health:
    Put simply, everyone will start drinking A LOT more water, flavored water and better-for-you beverages (and drink less sugar-filled soda in the process). Being well-hydrated is a key part of productivity and overall good health. Most workplace break rooms have lots of ways for people to drink coffee, and drinking water should be as fun, varied and personal–as that directly supports employee wellness.
  • Recyclability and Much Less Trash:
    Lavit EcoCaps are 100% recyclable at the point of use. The act of crafting your beverage from a Lavit EcoCap flushes out the capsule, leaving nothing left but a small piece of aluminum (1/7th the aluminum used in a traditional can). Drop it right in your metal recycling bin knowing that you are making the best choice for yourself and the environment.
  • Significant Space and Energy Savings:
    What if ALL your break room cold beverage needs–still, sparkling, flavored–could be satisfied with a compact water cooler and super light, small and easily recyclable beverage capsules? What would you do with all that reclaimed storage space? What else would you do with your time if you were not restocking the fridge several times a day with more bottles and cans? In fact, maybe you can get rid of the fridge altogether (or, at least one, if you have multiple fridges in your break room). With Lavit, you can offer great beverage variety, both still and sparkling, with much less space and effort and no refrigeration. Like that idea?  Learn more here
     

WHY DO YOU SAY THAT THE LAVIT COOLER STARTS WITH “GREAT WATER”?

We are quite proud of the high-end features in our Lavit countertop Cooler.  While your break room service provider will install a filter outside your Lavit Cooler, great water doesn’t stop there. The Lavit Cooler is equipped with antimicrobial materials and automatic ozonation disinfection. Ozonation cycles through the machine once daily during the very early morning and prevents growth in waterways and tanks.  It’s like starting everyday with a brand new water cooler–making water and beverages from your Lavit Cooler taste amazingly clean and fresh, every time.


How do I get a Lavit Cooler installed in my workplace break room?

Our compact, countertop Cooler requires a hookup to a water line, similar to high-end coffee machines. This ensures the most cost- and environmentally effective delivery of chilled, filtered, still and sparkling water. Lavit Coolers are installed and serviced by break room service providers across the country with which we partner and train. Contact your current provider to see if they are already authorized to install and service our Coolers (and replenish your supply of EcoCaps and CO2 canisters). Or, email us at hello@drinklavit.com, if you would like a suggestion of an authorized Lavit provider in your area.
 

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFICATIONS OF A LAVIT COOLER? 

The Lavit Countertop Cooler is surprisingly compact and is designed to fit easily under most above-counter cabinetry.  Click here for our spec sheet.
 

What does a Complete lavit system (cooler + capsules + co2 canisters for sparkling options) cost?

While exact costs are established by our break room service provider partners and total cost is very much based upon usage, the general range is between $150-300/month for an average 50-person office; which includes your Cooler rental and consumables (EcoCaps and CO2 canisters); a pretty good deal for replacing all your bottles and cans while encouraging everyone to drink more water, as well. For more information and a personalized quote based upon your workplace size and user base, please use the link below and fill out our quick info form. After submitting, a Lavit representative will follow up shortly. 

 

How long does it take for a Lavit Cooler to be ready for use once it is installed?

About 2 hours, enough time for our commercial-sized water tank to fill with filtered water from your water line and chill it for delicious drinks. Once this happens, your Lavit Cooler will continuously draw in and chill more filtered water as water is dispensed, ensuring an ongoing refreshing experience for everyone, all the time.
 

WHAT IF MY LAVIT COOLER NEEDS MAINTENANCE?

There is a “Support” tab at the top of the Lavit website that is available to current Lavit customers. It includes tips and troubleshooting to keep your Lavit Cooler in perfect working order.

If any issues not addressed in our support tab arise, please contact your Break Room Service Provider, who installed and services your Lavit Cooler (as well as replenishes your stock of EcoCaps and CO2) for help.
 

WILL LAVIT OFFER A Cooler for Homes and Offices without access to a water line?

Yes. A stand-up Lavit Cooler is being developed that does not require a water line hook-up, but instead is filled by 5-gallon water bottles provided by local water delivery companies (who will also lease the Cooler and replenish EcoCaps and CO2 canisters, as well). Click here if you’d like to be kept informed as to when this option is available in your area.


BEVERAGE CAPSULES (ECOCAPS)


ARE LAVIT BEVERAGE CAPSULES TRULY RECYCLABLE?

Yes, that’s why we call them EcoCaps™. Lavit capsules are 100% recyclable and made entirely from aluminum. After a beverage is crafted in the Lavit Cooler, the capsule is completely empty and you can recycle it just like you would an aluminum beverage can, though using much, much less metal! Learn more here.
 

WHAT MAKES BEVERAGES FROM MY LAVIT COOLER BETTER FOR ME?

First of all, we start with better water. Taste still or sparkling water from your Lavit Cooler and compare it to your current water cooler or water from a bottle or can and you will taste the difference. Now make a beverage, exactly as you want it–still or sparkling, more or less flavor or carbonation. Whichever EcoCap option you choose, your choice has little or no sugar, no preservatives and is made with all natural flavors. Some are even enriched with vitamins and minerals. You will always have a refreshing experience with your Lavit Cooler and, if you are like most people, you will find yourself drinking more and more water not because you should, but because you want to. That’s Life Unbottled.
 

What are the ingredients in your EcoCap beverage options?

Please follow this link for the latest flavors or download the nutritional facts.
 

ARE LAVIT ECOCAPS BEVERAGE OFFERINGS VEGAN?

Yes.
 

ARE LAVIT ECOCAPS BEVERAGE OFFERINGS KOSHER?

Yes, except for the current new Juice Press offerings.  These will be converted to Kosher-certified in the near future.

 

What is the sized drink that each EcoCap makes in my Lavit Cooler?

Each EcoCap is designed to make a 12-ounce beverage. That said, you can push the Lavit button on your Cooler before your beverage is completed to make your beverage more flavorful or add more water at the end of this process to reduce the flavor intensity. The choice is yours. It’s like being your own cold beverage barista!
 

HOW LONG DO LAVIT BEVERAGES from lavit ecocaps LAST?

Being a dry powder stored in a sealed aluminum container, Lavit beverage blends have an extensive usage life. Stored properly in their unopened capsules, these blends remain relatively inert until the point at which the beverage is crafted with still or sparkling water in a Lavit Cooler.
 

I RECENTLY OPENED A BOX OF LAVIT ECOCAPS AND CONTENTS IN ONE OF THE CAPSULES SEEMED CAKEY AND DIDN'T EASILY DISSOLVE WHEN I TRIED TO MAKE MY BEVERAGE. WHAT CAUSED THIS? 

All Lavit products should always be free flowing. However, because Lavit products are made from simple and clean ingredients and do not contain any preservatives, every once in a while, some Lavit capsules may become sticky or cakey. This has nothing to do with where a customer stores the product, but is due to a rarely occurring bump in the humidity in the manufacturing room where the packets get sealed. If this happens, please contact your break room service provider for a replacement box.
