WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. (May 7, 2015) – Vapur®, manufacturer of the flexible, reusable Anti-Bottle®, is partnering with the global humanitarian agency Mercy Corps to support relief efforts in Nepal after the country was hit by a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake on April 25, 2015. The quake was the worst to shake the region in 80 years and has left more than 8 million people across the country in need of emergency supplies.
Vapur will be donating $3 from every Red Element sold online to Mercy Corps, to help with critical relief efforts in Nepal. This fundraising effort will be going until the end of May. Mercy Corps has more than 100 team members on the ground in Nepal reaching survivors, delivering emergency supplies and evaluating conditions in some of the hardest-hit and remote areas of the country.
“Partnering with Mercy Corps was an easy decision when looking at what Vapur could do to support relief efforts,” said Brent Reinke, co-founder and CAO of Vapur. “Families are in immediate need of clean water, food and temporary shelter. We’re working with Mercy Corps to support their efforts in getting emergency relief and longer-term recovery to these families.”
The flexible, reusable and lightweight Vapur Element is the easiest way to stay hydrated wherever your adventure may take you – to the backcountry, gym, or running errands in the city. The bottle is dishwasher safe, freezable, made in the U.S.A and BPA free.
