ENJOY THE JOURNEY, LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND is more than just a tagline for Mizu - it’s the guiding light that drives all company decisions. From the Mizu Cutlery Set that provides a reusable stainless steel fork, knife, spoon, straw and even chopsticks over their single use counterparts, to where it all started with its line of single wall and insulated water bottles to help reduce single use plastic water bottles, every product in the Mizu product line is designed to give consumers a reusable option over single use products.
Through the 1% for the Planet organization, Mizu donates 1% of the global revenue it generates from its innovative Mizu 360 water filtration products, and the newly released reusable stainless steel and silicone straws. Mizu became a 1% for the Planet member quite recently (January 1st, 2019).
The company also supports and donates to organizations such as the Rob Machado Foundation, which is focused on educating children about the problems that single use plastics can cause in the oceans. Mizu most recently donated through a promotion in Europe with World Champion SUP racer Sonni Honscheid for Trash Hero, an organization that brings communities together to clean and reduce waste in some of the more troubling areas of the world such as Asia and Africa.
Mizu is focused on the root cause of the problem, which is advocating to reduce the initial production of single use products by providing high quality and beautifully designed alternatives. Yet, through its various charitable donations, Mizu also likes to spread the wealth by supporting many other closely related organization in the past including Waves for Water, Charity Water, Give Clean Water, SIMA and Wildcoast.
