Cupanion – Fill it Forward
Track your environmental impact with Cupanion. Every time you refill, they give clean water to a person in need. Fill it Forward™
About Cupanion Cupanion is thrilled to be a sponsor at the 2019 Green Living Show, March 22-24 in Toronto! This year’s event is loaded with hundreds of exhibitors, products, demonstrations, and sessions featuring the industry’s most prominent thought leaders in sustainability. The Guelph based reusable bottle company started out in 2009 with the goal of reducing single-use waste, while also helping make clean drinking water more accessible in developing communities around the world. As a certified B-Corporation, Cupanion’s newest reusable bottle and Fill it Forward app experience offer a unique way to track your environmental impact. Every time you scan the Fill it Forward tag included with your Cupanion bottle, you give a cup of clean water to a person in need. Each cup given helps fund meaningful projects around the world.
Fill it Forward App In an effort to promote sustainability, all GLS attendees are encouraged to bring their own reusable bottle to fill up during the event. The best part is that even with your own bottle, you can still participate in the Fill it Forward app experience! Visit Cupanion (booth #1211 and a satellite hub located near the water refill station) to receive a free Fill it Forward tag and join in the app experience.
Every Scan = A Cup of Clean Water Given During the show everyone using the app will help complete a clean water project in partnership with Water First – an Ontario based charitable organization dedicated to helping First Nation communities across Canada solve local water challenges through education, training and meaningful collaboration. (Many First Nations communities have identified the need for certified personnel to operate and maintain their drinking water treatment systems. That’s why Water First focuses on water treatment training and skill development.) Every scan during the event helps contributes to the end goal of helping fund a new clean water initiative. In addition to giving clean water, every time you track you reuse follow along on the Footprint screen to see how you are making a positive impact on the environment, while also earning badges and tracking your personal hydration. The Cupanion team is looking forward to connecting with you and will be onsite the whole weekend so be sure to stop by learn more about this initiative.
