American-Made, Eco-Friendly Adventure Brands--Nalgene Outdoor and Corbeaux Clothing--Partner to Support Domestic Drinking Water Initiatives
Cobranded Limited-Edition Apparel and Reusable Water Bottles to Raise Funds for Nalgene Water Fund
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- American-made, eco-friendly adventure brands Nalgene Outdoor, maker of reusable water bottles, and Corbeaux Clothing, stylish, eco-conscious adventure apparel, announce a partnership to support safe domestic drinking water.
For a limited time Nalgene will sell exclusive co-branded base layer shirts for men and women designed by Corbeaux. In turn, Nalgene Outdoor will design two limited-edition co-branded 32-ounce widemouth bottles that will be sold in Corbeaux's flagship store in Aspen, Colorado and its online store.
The MSRP for the men's and women's base layer shirts is $134 and $93 respectively. Ten percent of the apparel's proceeds and five dollars of every $19.99 bottle sold will directly benefit the Nalgene Water Fund, a nonprofit launched earlier this year to assist U. S. communities struggling with clean water access.
Both Nalgene Outdoor and Corbeaux Clothing are rooted in sustainability with a commitment to preserving and supporting natural resources to be enjoyed by all.
- Corbeaux Clothing is 'Blue Sign' certified. Their fabrics meet the highest standard in the textile industry for environmental health and safety. Clothing is made from recycled materials and the process used to mill fabrics diverts waste from landfills by using recycled postconsumer PET plastic bottles and postindustrial waste as the base materials.
- Nalgene reusable water bottles feature simple rugged designs that are BPA- and BPS-free, leak-proof, dishwasher safe, and nearly indestructible. For decades, Nalgene has promoted the concept 'Refill Not Landfill' and diverted millions of single-use plastic water bottles from landfills worldwide.
'We are thrilled to partner with a company as committed to sustainability and responsibility as Corbeaux Clothing; we love the brand mission and the way Corbeaux gear plays with bright, nature inspired colors just like our bottles do.' says Elissa Mcgee, general manager, Nalgene Outdoor. 'The passion we have seen for the Nalgene Water Fund, from consumers and now a partner like Corbeaux, is amazing. Our shared goal for this effort is to raise the profile of, and funds to assist, those struggling with access to clean water.'
