Vasque Embraces Plastic Impact Alliance at Outdoor Retailer

June 18, 2019

The brand will gift reusable water bottles to attendees and provide a water refill station

Red Wing, MN – June 18, 2019 – Vasque footwear, a family-owned company with more than 50 years of experience in the outdoor footwear sector, is pleased to announce it has joined the Plastic Impact Alliance. As a member of the alliance, Vasque will provide a water re-fill station in its booth at Outdoor Retailer and will have 200 Nalgene bottles to gift to OR attendees who may have left their reusable bottle at home.

Americans purchase about 50 billion water bottles per year, averaging approximately 13 bottles per month for every person in the U.S.  The Plastic Impact Alliance now counts more than 200 brands and retailers who are committed to making the outdoor industry more sustainable, one bottle at a time.

“We are proud to join the Plastic Impact Alliance. It is so encouraging to see so many of our peers come together for a common and worthy cause,” said Allison Gettings, president at Vasque Footwear. “Vasque is grateful to SNEWS and Catapult Creative Lab for their work in spearheading the effort. We know that sometimes even with the best of intentions, folks forget their reusable bottles. Vasque is happy to help out in a pinch with a few hundred extra bottles!”

There is still time to join the Plastic Impact Alliance.

Stop by the Vasque booth (38006-UL) for a free Nalgene (while supplies last) and an H20 top off.
