My mission for a sports water bottle product for Twisted Tree began in my own cabinets. I never used to think about the brands I owned, opening a business certainly changed that. I have had the same insulated bottle for quite a few years. I had purchased the bottle right down the street at my local bike shop in La Grange. When I saw ‘Made in the USA’ on the label of my pink Polar Bottle, it turned out that this was a mindful purchase I had made (far before I ever cared about being mindful). This bottle has been on my bike and used for over 8 year and has clocked more miles then I can count.
Founders of Polar Bottle, Robert Heiberger and Judy Amabile of Boulder Colorado, made their product with a commitment to eco-friendliness and giving back to the community. Not only is this product made in the USA, but it is also BPA free, meaning that this product is no harm to the environment or the people who live in it. They even have DIY instructions for recycling on their website in exchange for 50% coupons. Choosing Polar Bottle as my product of choice for Twisted Tree was easy.
Their mission statement really says it all:
"Create products that have a positive, long-term, impact on the lives of our customers and the health of our planet; support our employees and community, and those of our suppliers, by keeping our manufacturing in Colorado and sourcing USA-Made materials for our products."
