SIPS Glass Water Bottle and Covers
These are fabulous products on their own, but the cause makes it that much better. SIPS glass water bottle, Sip O'Clock, is available individually or may be purchased with coordinating covers. Sip away!
Each purchase helps build wells in Uganda.
Why Us, & Why Now?
We have all had those marathon days at the office--a deadline is quickly approaching and time is slipping through our fingers. When we finally get home, our headaches remind us that, somehow, we forgot to drink a single drop of water!
It is easy to let water slip through our minds. In the United States, it seems like we have an unlimited supply of this life-giving liquid. Through our faucets run dutifully when we need them, too many in this world do not share this privilege. In Uganda alone, over 8.4 million people lack access to safe water-that is equivalent to the entire population of New York City. Here at SIPS, we would like to change that. Care to join us?
Meet Justine--she works here at SIPS, but she grew up in Uganda. Clean water was located at a well 5 miles away from her home. Several times a week she was forced to make the 10 mile round-trip. "When I was ten years old, I started walking to the well. Since it was so far, I would have to carry home twenty liters on my head," Justine said, "It was exhausting."
Justine's story, and countless others, inspired us to create SIPS with one mission in mind: to deliver a clean, sustainable sip that promotes access to potable water for communities in Uganda. That is why with every purchase, you are helping us drill a well for a village in need.
Our products reflect our attitude towards water-simple yet essential. When our passion for design is combined with our mission in Uganda, customers can celebrate a small victory in every sip. Whether enjoying the company of friends and family or shaking off the morning's slumber, they are helping change the world for real people. We believe that should feel pretty darn good.
So here's to making every sip a memorable one. Cheers!
