We are honored to represent so many wonderful artists and makers. Here are some of their stories - because it matters how these products are made and the people they empower.
The founders of Memobottle™ set out to create an environmentally friendly, yet convenient alternative to disposable water bottles. Their goal was to flip the equation - by designing a reusable water bottle that is easy to transport but still holds the functional aspects of traditional bottles and help change people's way of thinking.
$1 from every online order is donated to water.org, providing access to safe water for one person for 10 months.
