If you haven't already heard about our good friends over at Goal Zero, check them out below to read about their roots as a non-profit operating out of Africa to how they grew that charity work into a full blown solar and portable electronics company servicing the world over.
How did you first hear about the Mizu Custom program?
We originally heard about it from Jussi, Mizu's Co-Founder. We were familiar with Mizu and the company’s mission, so when he asked if we were interested in doing any branded mugs, we were definitely on board.
What about Mizu and their custom program made it a great fit for your brand?
Our brand was born to fulfill a need for quality portable power systems in rural Africa. Mizu was also born out of a cause and they make quality products that help solve a very serious problem. When you pick up any of their bottles, you can tell they will last you the rest of your life. Their insulated mugs fit perfectly into an event we were hosting at the Outdoor Retailer tradeshow and we were proud to associate our brand with that quality look and feel.
What is your favorite product in the Mizu line up and how did you choose your custom product?
The new favorite is the double wall coffee mugs. Perfect for hot coffee or morning smoothies.
Does your brand support a cause initiative?
We were founded in the Democratic Republic of Congo as a Non-Profit and it was then turned into a business when we realized that our products were a viable solution for all walks of life. Outside of giving back to different humanitarian projects every year, we also support a slew of outdoor industry initiatives like Conservation Alliance, Leave No Trace and many more.
How does your brand live a Mizu Life?
We are all about adventure and sustainability, I’m pretty sure that plays perfectly into the Mizu life!
