With all the controversy and outrage [1] surrounding the presence of BPA in plastic water bottles, KOR [2] has stood by its commitment to encourage individuals to stop buying disposable bottled water with its smoothly styled BPA-free water vessels. This past week they announced a limited-edition series of β€œThirst for Giving [3]” bottles that feature beautiful art and provide sales proceeds to non-profits that are working to preserve the environment.

Five dollars from the sale of each Special Edition Kor bottle goes toward their Thirst for Giving [3] program, which supports select non-profits: The Algalita Marine Foundation [4], Blue Planet Run [5], The Container Recycling Institute [6] and The Wetlands Initiative [7].

β€œThe people at KOR [2] prove that a company with a conscience can succeed in providing a durable, fashionable, high quality product that not only is good for the environment, it gives back to protecting the environment as well,” said Susan Collins of The Container Recycling Institute.
