A Portion of Proceeds Will Be Donated to the Environmental Defense Fund
Dark Horse is excited to announce a brand-new line of environmentally friendly products for a new age, collectible water bottles. With designs from some of the greatest comics Dark Horse has to offer, including Umbrella Academy, Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher, with more to follow! The first line-up will arrive February 2021.
Each 17-ounce stainless-steel water bottle is double-wall insulated, so whether you’re time traveling or fighting monsters, your water bottle will keep your beverage the perfect temperature, either hot or cold.
From Dark Horse Comics CEO, Mike Richardson:
“A newly released study says that a mind-bending 53 trillion metric tons of plastic pollution will be in our oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams by 2030. Plastic has been found in everything from whales to zooplankton, and is affecting nearly all living creatures. Hundreds of different animal species are known to have suffered from entanglement and ingestion of plastic debris. Plastic debris is estimated to kill more than 100,000 marine mammals annually, as well as millions of birds and fishes.
Plastics break down, but they don’t go away. Microplastics have worked their way through the food chain into humans and researchers believe that plastic particles could affect the digestive system’s immune response. The leading soft drink company in the U.S. itself produces roughly 120 billion plastic bottles per year.
So what to do?
Well, each of us can reduce the amount of plastic we are responsible for one. We can make a change in the number of plastic water bottles we purchase and throw away. With these new water bottles and more on the way, we wanted to create a fun alternative to plastic to help just a little with the world’s plastic situation. A portion of each bottle we sell will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund, an organization dedicated to preserving the world’s natural resources.
We can all help.”
The first batch of water bottles will retail for $19.99 and arrive February 10, 2020. Pre-order now from your local comic shop.
