“We’re not only reducing waste and helping the environment, we’re creating better health habits.”

EcoVessel, a leading designer of hydration products and Elkay Manufacturing, the largest water fill station provider in the U.S., have formed a partnership to create a unique opportunity for schools across the country. The purpose of this partnership is to educate and encourage students to eliminate the use of single use plastic water bottles. Last year, Americans used 50 billion plastic bottles of water and 35 billion of them ended up in landfills, on beaches and in our oceans, harming the environment and marine life. Additionally, chemicals from plastic can be absorbed by the body, altering hormones and causing potentially harmful health effects.
The program works by having students take orders from their family, neighbors and friends for EcoVessel bottles that will be custom printed with their school mascot or logo. The earnings from their sales will finance Elkay ezH2O bottle fill stations for their schools. The bottles are made of premium stainless steel and feature EcoVessel’s signature TriMax Triple Insulation Technology so drinks stay cold for 36 hours and hot up to 8 hours. The bottles do not contain any BPA, phthalates, and are condensation-free. The fill stations provide ready access to filtered water that is free of lead, chlorine and other impurities so it is easy and convenient for kids to stay healthily hydrated. “We’re not only reducing waste and helping the environment, we’re creating better health habits by encouraging students to drink and enjoy clean, good tasting, filtered water instead of sugar loaded drinks,” says Jon Fox, EcoVessel’s founder and president.
