Design, Aesthetics and Sustainability

I drink a LOT of water and lately have been reading a much about the terrible impact that bottled water has on the environment. I just picked up a KOR One and will from now on fill it from my tap. I chose the KOR because of its amazing design and functionality, but also because of the company's efforts to improve the planet. KOR donates 1% of all sales to a select group of non-profits that focus on water-related issues. Their goal is not only to provide much-needed funds to these organizations, but to engage our customers on issues such as recycling, watershed protection and the global water crisis. The color you choose designates the environmental issue to which your contribution will be made. Mine is blue - Ocean Protection.

If you are not yet familar with the environmental impact of bottled water, take a look at the graphic below. Click to enlarge it.

I love the KOR ONE too! And the new ones they have that are printed with graphics that portray the water causes are really cool looking. I got a coupon code you can use for $5.00 off. KWS-12335 when you check out works for each bottle you buy.
