Drink up, kids.
EcoVessel, a Boulder-based reusable drinkware firm that offers 100-year warranties on its products, has introduced new products for children.
“It was always part of our ethos to design kids’ products that were safe, easy to use and performed well,” CEO and founder Jon Fox said. “ … Part of (our) company ethos is to have great customer service and support what we make.”
The Frost is a 12-ounce, triple-insulated stainless steel water bottle that keeps drinks cold for up to 36 hours, according to the company’s website. It retails for $24.95 and comes with a flip spout, no-tilt drinking straw and silicone bumper to prevent dents.
The Splash, which retails for $12.95, is the lightweight version of The Frost, Fox said. It’s made of Tritan Plastic, is BPA-free, comes with a drinking straw and fits in most lunch boxes, according to the company’s website.
Both products, which come in five different patterns and colors, can be found at REI, Sprouts Farmers Markets, online and at McGuckin Hardware in Boulder.
EcoVessel was founded in 2011 when Fox said he was looking for a “cool, safe alternative to the drinkware that was on the market.”
Prior to EcoVessel, Fox owned a massage, chiropractic and acupuncture business in Boulder.
“As the reusable market started to grow … EcoVessel became much more full time,” Fox said.
The company now has 13 employees, an office in Boulder and a warehouse in Denver. EcoVessel also delivers its products to 20 countries, according to Fox.
