When Vapur introduced its innovative “Anti-Bottles” in 2009, not only was the company looking to make waves with its bold, trendy and versatile design, but Vapur also wanted to change the way consumers, well, consumed. Right out the gate, Vapur planted its roots deeply in environmental causes, and is expanding these efforts through an enhanced partnership with Recyclebank.
Recyclebank helps create a more sustainable future by rewarding people for taking everyday green actions with discounts and deals at more than 3,000 local and national businesses. Through digital offerings and partnerships with municipalities, haulers, small businesses and corporate brands, Recyclebank aims to increase recycling rates, curb energy and water consumption, encourage smarter transportation, strengthen local economies and help people realize the financial benefits of making greener choices every day.
Intrigued by Recyclebank's unique platform and motivated by the organization’s brand mission, Vapur is proud to participate in four of Recyclebank’s earth-conscious campaigns throughout the year, which include: World Water Week, Earth Month, Back to School and Holidays. During the Earth Day campaign, Recyclebank members receive a “buy one, get one free” offer for Vapur’s internationally acclaimed Anti-Bottles.
Vapur first partnered with Recyclebank in January, participating in Recyclebank’s standard rewards program that offers Recyclebank members a 20-percent discount on www.vapur.us. This standard reward will continue throughout the year, running simultaneously with Recyclebank’s the earth-conscious campaigns. The success of the program and Vapur’s commitment to Recyclebank’s mission prompted Vapur to expand its support of the organization. By partnering with like-minded companies, such as Recyclebank, Vapur can support its key mission while also sharing its message with more users and consumers.
“Each year more than 38 billion single-use water bottles end up in U.S. landfills,” says Jason Carignan, chief design officer and co-founder of Vapur. “Though the adoption of reusable water bottles has grown rapidly over the past few years, it has done little to stem the flow of plastic bottle waste. We can further promote our message of sustainability through our partnership with Recyclebank, and we are honored to be part of their larger action toward everyday conscious consumption.”
