Our goal at Epic has always been environmentally minded and we find value in not only practicing environmental stewardship as a company but also in supporting others who do the same. Like many who came before us and who will surely come after us, we hope to leave the planet a little bit better than we found it (and with cleaner water too).
Read on below to see our ongoing efforts.
OUR GREEN INITIATIVES
We are a proud contributor and strategic partner of the Inland Ocean Coalition (IOC) who works to raise awareness of the impact that micro-plastics (single-use bottles and straws) are having on our rivers and oceans.
They remind us that you don't have to live by the ocean to care about it. Click here to learn more about them.
You can also support IOC by purchasing our OG Special Edition IOC Bottle, proceeds go directly back to them.
We opt for materials that are gentle on the environment. Our packaging is 100% compostable, and we have a Filter Recycling Program to help you responsibly dispose of your used filters (and get rewarded for it).
To learn how you can recycle your filter, click here.
We also like to reuse materials in our warehouse whenever we can do so safely so as to minimize our footprint and give a second purpose to materials that would otherwise end up immediately in landfills.
We believe in supporting others who are doing work that matters. As a 1% for the Planet Member, we commit 1% of our sales each year to give back to environmental organizations that are truly making a difference.
We like to engage our local community in making a difference too, so we do an annual creek clean up to prevent unwanted waste from making its way from us to the ocean. We love where we live and we like to do what we can to keep it beautiful.
