BottlesUp Gives Back To Blue
BottlesUp is glad to be part of the 1% for the Planet community. We believe that environmental initiatives start right at home, one step at a time. With our 75% recycled glass water bottles that contain no plastic in the product or packaging, we start to help reduce the 38 billion(!) single use plastic water bottles used in the US each year. Our beautiful and sturdy bottles help make the pledge of awareness about how we impact our planet.
Glass designer Laurel Herter knows about the importance of biodiversity. Her own commitment as a steward of our natural world began at a very young age, spending thousands of hours haunting the rivers and streams of New England with an obsessed fly fisherman father.
As a former graphic artist for hydrologists in the Bay Area and The Habitat Restoration Group in Santa Cruz, Laurel knew about Save Our Shores and the great work they do.
Our 1% FTP contribution to Save Our Shores was a natural choice.
Save Our Shores is the Central Coast leader in caring for the marine environment through ocean awareness, advocacy and citizen action. Their core initiatives are Plastic Pollution, Clean Boating, and Ocean Awareness. Over the last 30 years, Save Our Shores helped to establish the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, and worked to prevent offshore oil drilling and cruise ship pollution. Today they focus on educating youth about local watersheds, tackle pollution on our beaches and rivers, and advocate for plastic-free communities.
Save Our Shores is an advocate in the community for local bans on single-use plastic bags and polystyrene containers, and work to protect the most valuable resource on the Central Coast – the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
