Earthwater teams up with Tri-California to minimize the impact on our environment. Americans send about 38 billion water bottles a year to landfills. Considering the 1.5 million barrels of oil needed to make those bottles, the environmental impact of plastic bottle waste is truly staggering. It's an easy change that can make a big difference.
You have probably heard the saying "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". This is a fairly common phrase you will see at most recycling centers, waste management facilities, and on recycling containers nation wide to promote environmentally-friendly methods of reducing waste. What you may not know is that these three R's are listed in chronological order. Though we've all become quite conditioned to recycling as a great way to reduce waste and help the environment, reusing products and materials, and reducing our consumption in the first place have a much more positive impact on the environment.
How it works: Purchase your SIGG or Nalgene bottle online and stop by the Earthwater Expo booth at the event to pick up your bottle for use all weekend and for years to come. For those that want their bottle ready for them at the finish line, pick up your wristband at the Earthwater Expo booth on Friday and your fresh bottle will be waiting for you as you cross the line at the Earthwater finish line booth.
For each bottle purchased you help us get closer to saving our environment by saving on plastic bottles and wax covered cups plus 100% of the profits from the sale of these bottles will follow Earth Water's mission to help provide clean drinking water to millions of children and families around the world.
The Cause: Earth Water's mandate is to give 100% of their net profits to the United Nations Refugee Agency to provide clean drinking water to millions of refugees in African and around the world.
By Purchasing Earth Water, you are in fact providing clean water for someone else in the world.
Water for water, it's just that simple.
