Just allocated funds for 150 BioSand filters to be made in India. Thanks everyone!
Here’s a neat short film about Seb Lester. He did the typography on our Tap is Terrific bottle.
New shipment just came in. My, that’s a lot of bottles!
Hmmm… one of these things looks suspiciously close to the other!
In recognition of World Water Week (March 19-25), here are a few water related things we’ve found interesting…
Water Footprint APP
Carry this Virtual Water digital companion anywhere and grow more conscious about how much water our everyday food and beverages really consume. If you don’t have a smart phone, they also sell a poster with same snazzy graphics as you see below.
Unicef Tap Project
Lenny Kravitz is lending his support for UNICEF’s Tap Project by encouraging restaurant patrons across the country to pay $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free during World Water Week.
Donate Your Voice
Matt Damon and Water.org encourage you to “Donate Your Voice” by granting them temporary access to your Twitter or Facebook account. Once approved, they’ll post periodic updates about their cause all this week.
A few weeks ago we got a curiously large bottle order from a woman here in Los Angeles named Annika. Not being ones to keep our noses out of other people’s business, we reached out to find out what she was up to!
My family is going to stop buying all plastic bottles of water (we go through cases and cases) and use your bottles in the fridge, bedside tables, dinner table, pool house, grab a bottle for the road etc. We’re trying to make a change and send a positive message to our family and friends.
How great is that? We followed up with her again after the change:
It’s been a few weeks since you’ve switched from bottled water to reusable water bottles. What are your thoughts so far?
The switch was seamless. Empty bottles are returned to the kitchen sink, washed and refilled with delicious filtered tap water.
What’s been the biggest challenge?
The biggest challenge was finding the right bottles. A bottle that was not too big, not too small… one thatwould work on the dining table, bedside table, car cupholder etc. And most importantly, an attractive bottle!
How has the rest of your family reacted to the change?
Everyone in our family enjoys drinking the delicious bottled tap water and we all love the message that it sends to our friends. We are plastic free!
In the interest of full disclosure, Annika did request a couple replacement caps. But besides that, it sounds like the transition was pretty seamless!
