Sustainability, Social Impact, and the Bottom Line

  • What was the name of the company and what did you purchase?

The company is called Origin. The name of the product that I purchased is the “Origin Best BPA-Free Borosilicate Glass Water Bottle with Protective Silicone Sleeve and Bamboo Lid. The item is Dishwasher Safe and BPA, BPS, PVC, Lead and Cadmium free. They won’t leach chemicals similar to plastic, won’t grow bacteria in its scratches, or rust like metal. Medical grade borosilicate glass expands and contract very little in extreme temps – preventing cracking in extreme hot or cold. Also, these fashionable glass water bottles are perfect for juices, sodas, water and sport supplements. Origin believes that joy should be shared to those who are less fortunate. Origin has partnered with a non-profit that drills water wells at village schools in rural Ghana.

  • Why did you choose to purchase that particular product or service?

I chose this product because I am have been making a conscious effort to not use plastic water bottles anymore. I heard about this brand from a friend and I love the bottle because it is forever reusable, recyclable, sustainable and soft on the environment. The leak proof lids have food grade silicone O-rings so no liquid touches plastic and leaches no chemical taste. They are stain-resistant and won’t retain any flavors or colors from powders or juice.

  • Did the company’s position on sustainability or social impact influence your purchase decision?

Yes! Origin gives 2% of revenue to non-profit water well drilling in rural Ghana to address the most persistent needs of those living in extreme poverty. Purchases helps save lives through clean water which I love to support.

  • Compared to its competitors in the industry, how was the product priced?

In compared to other brands, their pricing is priced fairly. Pricing starts at $15.99 and goes up to $25.99 depending on the size of water bottle purchased.

  • Would you purchase the product in the future? Why or why not?

Yes! I think it has been a great addition to my daily life and it is nice to know that I helping to give back to those in need. I will give these to a few friends as gifts and would recommend to anyone looking for a sustainable glass water bottle.

  • How is this company performing in their sector? Are they able to compete and stay true to their Mission?

I believe they are preforming what they said they would do. When doing research about the company, I learned that they truly take their grantmaking very seriously. They recently visited Ghana to vet Empower Playgrounds because their purpose aligns with Origin’s. Clean water is essential to surviving in the extremes, education is the key to finding a pathway out of poverty, and greater hygiene enables females and children to achieve more.
