We all know drinking water is good for us—and thanks to Boulder-based Eco Vessel’s recently released Surf water bottle collection, now it’s also good for the world. One percent of each Surf bottle purchase benefits Denver nonprofit Water For People, which has been working to provide clean water to people around the globe since 1981. Brightly hued (choose from five colors) and made of recycled glass, a reinforced silicone sleeve, and a padded bottom, the bottles are also BPA- and phthalate-free (those leaching chemicals that can cause hormonal and developmental problems in young children). Pick one up ($19.95) at Peppercorn or REI in Boulder or on the company’s website. ecovessel.com
9/3/14 Correction: A previous version of this story stated that the Surf water bottle was locally made. While the company is local, the bottle is not locally manufactured. We regret the error.
