Burton X Mizu team up for new reusable water bottle collection
Mizu water bottles and Burton Snowboards have come together to create a new reusable water bottle collection, which will benefit The Chill Foundation, a non-profit youth development program founded by Burton’s own Jake & Donna Carpenter. Mizu, owned by Burton rider Jussi Oksanen, has been collaborating with Burton since its inception in 2008, as the two share a mutual passion for protecting the environment.
“The Burton x Mizu water bottle project is close to our hearts for two reasons,” said Jake & Donna Carpenter, Co-owners of Burton Snowboards and Founders of the Chill Foundation. “The first is that we’re more focused than ever on sustainability and reducing our impact, and Mizu water bottles help in this effort. And secondly, Chill needs every dollar it can get so that more underserved youth can experience this life-changing program, which teaches critical life skills like patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, respect and pride through snowboarding.”

December 10, 2013 – San Diego, CA— Just in time for the holidays, Mizu and Burton Snowboards are proud to announce a new line of reusable water bottles featuring iconic Burton artwork, available now at Burton U.S. flagship stores and at www.mizulife.com/burton. The best part is that all of Burton’s proceeds from the Burton x Mizu water bottle sales will go to The Chill Foundation, a non-profit youth development program founded by Jake and Donna Carpenter that changes lives through snowboarding.
Mizu has been working on collaborative products with Burton since Burton Team Rider Jussi Oksanen founded Mizu in 2008. The two companies share a mutual love of snowboarding, respect for the environment and the desire to protect the places where riders play.
In addition to supporting Chill, the latest collection of Burton x Mizu water bottles also helps reduce consumption of single-use plastic water bottles. The line of 100% recycled, BPA-free bottles comes in four stand-out graphic styles, which include the M8 Burton Performer Elite, M8 Burton Logo Glow in the Dark, M8 Burton Fairisle and V8 Burton AK Glow in the Dark.
“This new collection of Burton x Mizu bottles allows Burton to continue their support of Mizu’s core mission to help reduce the overwhelming use of single-use plastic containers,” said Tim Pogue, Mizu’s CEO. “Now we can also help support one of the most effective non-profits to come out of our industry – The Chill Foundation.”
