Happy Earth Day! Introducing S’Well Fabulous Water Bottles…

Happy Earth Day Everyone!! In honor of Earth Day I am writing about one of our favorite new products,  S’Well Water Bottles! Made from Stainless Steel (they are non-leaching, toxin-free, and are virtually unbreakable), they hold 17 ounces and can keep things both hot and cold. Did you know that “studies have consistently shown that most of the bottled water consumed is less pure than the water from public water supply. In spite of this evidence, consumers purchase mind-boggling amounts of bottled water not for purity sake, but for convenience and portability. Even in this era of conservation of resources, less than 20% of these plastic disposable water bottles are recycled. S’well aims to eliminate the number of plastic bottles needlessly discarded every year.” So get your S’well on this Earth Day with one of these fabulous water bottles- $30 each. S’well Water Bottles available in Black, Blue, Green, Yellow, Pink, Red, and Silver. More Earth Day/ Water Facts from S’Well’s site here too:

S’well bottles merge style and function with environmental and social consciousness. Through a year-long design process involving hundreds of prototypes and dozens of focus groups, the S’well bottle was born.

Equally important to the S’well mission is providing clean water to those in need. Nearly a billion people in the world do not have access to safe water – roughly one sixth of the world’s population. Many women and children in rural areas in developing countries spend hours each day walking miles to collect water from unprotected sources such as open wells, muddy dugouts or streams. In urban areas, they collect it from polluted waterways or pay high prices to buy it from vendors who obtain it from dubious sources. Transporting water is a time-consuming, exhaustive task that prevents women from doing vital domestic activities or income generating work and stops children from going to school.

To address this dire situation, we (S’Well) have partnered with WaterAid, a 501(c)(3) organization, where every S’well purchase supports WaterAid’s programs improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities. Since being founded nearly thirty years ago, WaterAid has brought clean drinking water to over 14 million people in the poorest communities in the world.
