"I was fortunate enough to grow up on the pristine shores of Lake Tahoe, one of the clearest lakes in the world.  At a very early age, I realized the impact we had on keeping it that way.  As human beings living on this planet, I believe we are all connected; especially through water.  The snow pack that melts into the lakes and rivers, eventually makes its way to the ocean… and everything it encounters along the way will contribute to the cycle.  I am honored to participate in this project aiming to keep single-use plastic bottles out of the mix.  As you spin the bottle, you can follow the water’s journey, from the mountain peaks to the waves in the ocean.  Together we can help keep it clean the whole way!"

"We are so excited to launch this special edition bottle with local Boulder artist Phil Lewis and the team at Epic Water Filters. Phil has created an amazing design on the bottle and we think this is a great medium to help bring awareness about protecting our oceans, waterways, and wildlife from plastic pollution. I honestly think this is the coolest water bottle I have ever seen!" - Vicki Goldstein, Inland Ocean Coalition

"We are excited and honored to work with Phil Lewis to support Inland Ocean Coalition's mission to engage inland communities in land-to-sea stewardship. The #1 reason why people buy single use plastic bottled water is they do not trust their tap water. At Epic, we are making super strong American made filters so that people can feel confident drinking from their taps." - Ash Heather, Epic Water Filters
