THIS IS OUR STORY

Our Mission Is Simple.

Reduce plastic waste & give to help heal to the environment

How often have you gone to a big box retailer only to witness cart after cart with cases of plastic bottled water being wheeled out the exit? No doubt you’ve heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch which has grown to the twice the size of Texas. (Google it for a disturbing read!) There’s now a plastics trash problem from the highest peak, Mt Everest, to the lowest depths of the Mariana Trench, where they’ve recently found plastic trash on the bottom.

Founded in 2019, REUZBL ("reusable") aims to make products that strengthen your bond with your reusable water bottle. One well protected, extremely useful and well maintained water bottle may be what each of us needs to do our part.

At REUZBL we want to do our part, so our plan is to contribute a portion

of our profits to organizations and individuals that help either reduce plastic trash that goes into nature or help naturally mend our environment. Our first partnership is with 1% for the Planet who work with many on site causes.

We are also working on a new collaboration with a reef restoration group in the Coral Triangle (specifically Bali) to assist with their coral gardening and community education efforts. More will be announced on this at Outdoor Retailer in January 2020

About The Founder

After graduating college in 1992 I backpacked around Europe for three months.

Back then we didn’t have cell phones or internet, we just relied on our 600+ page “Let’s Go Europe” books and for me a nylon mesh water sling and water bottle. Dozens of water bottles and many years later I now faithfully use double walled stainless steel bottles to contain and carry my favorite natural resource. After creating the REUZBL bottle sleeve, I’m never without it on my flask. Once you start using one you might agree that the water bottles look naked (and unprotected) without it.

Before REUZBL, a big part of my past decade was building UZBL "usable", a company that designs protective iPad and laptop cases for schools. REUZBL is an active lifestyle spin off that benefits from this product design experience.
