Fifty years ago, Earth Day was created as a movement for youth to take on environmental issues that needed to be addressed. On that very first Earth Day in 1970, 20 million Americans took over to demonstrate the need for a healthy, sustainable environment. Students rose up across thousands of colleges and universities to take a stand for the ocean, grasslands, wildlife, human rights, and trees. This Earth Day, we’re partnering with Pathwater to take that same stand.
Pathwater is the first bottled water in an infinitely refillable aluminum bottle. They offer a solution to single-use plastic bottles and encourage consumers to re-learn to reuse. They launched the #five4five campaign to donate 100% of proceeds from their $5 limited-edition Earth Day bottled water to five nonprofits that support elements of the earth, including oceans, forests & grasslands, wildlife, trees, and people. Pathwater’s goal is to convert 30,000 special edition Earth Day bottles into funding for our environment, including The National Forest Foundation.
“The #five4five campaign is simple, purchase a $5 refillable Earth Day bottle and benefit five nonprofits that are supporting the earth,” said Ali Orabi, CMO and Co-founder of Pathwater. “We wanted to make the 50th anniversary of Earth Day special, and donate 100% of proceeds to nonprofits that support the planet’s conservation, preservation, and overall future.”
The National Forest Foundation represents Forests and Grasslands within the #five4five campaign. This Earth Day, we’re collaborating with Pathwater to raise funds that will help reduce plastic waste, and preserve national forests and grasslands. At The National Forest Foundation, we protect over 193-million-acres of the National Forest System. Protecting wildlife habitats and recreation resources, improving fish and wildlife habitat, planting more trees, restoring meadows, and improving aquatic organism passages, are a priority for us. It takes the protection of beautiful landscapes to keep hiking trails beautiful, camps clean, and the natural places we love to explore clean, healthy, and educational.
The National Forest System will be supported this Earth Day by nature lovers who will be able to grab a reusable bottle for $5 and where proceeds will go to protecting our National Forests and Grasslands. Now you can take your bottle with pride and refill it at one of the many National Forests.
In addition to The National Forest Foundation, 100% of proceeds from the Pathwater limited-edition $5 Earth Day reusable bottles will be donated and split equally between:
- 5 Gyres (oceans)
- Karmagawa (wildlife)
- Oxygen Seven (trees)
- Make-A-Wish (people)
In these delicate times, now more than ever, protecting trees, forests, grasslands, wildlife, and the ocean, is important for ensuring humans' existence on this earth. Every action counts, which is why we've created the easiest way to diversify your environmental charity efforts.
We invite you to slow down a bit this Earth Day and get an exclusive #five4five bottle that donates to all proceeds to five awesome organizations. It's the easiest way to help preserve and care for national forests and grasslands, the ocean, wildlife, trees, and all of that, in turn, helps take care of humanity. We're in this together. Happy Earth Day!
