The holidays are a time for giving and spending time with the ones you love. It’s also a time for remembering those less fortunate and doing your part to enrich others’ lives through charity. Hydro Flask’s charitable arm, 5% Back, enables customers to do this with ease and no extra charges. When flasks are purchased, customers may register the serial number on the inside sleeve and Hydro Flask will donate 5% of the flask’s profits to a charity that customers choose. It’s simple, it’s easy, and it benefits great organizations around the United States making a difference in so many ways.
Each Hydro Flask, no matter if it’s purchased at www.HydroFlask.com or through retailers such as Eastern Mountain Sports, REI, or others, comes with a sleeve or hang tag (on the 64oz Growlers and all food flasks) attached to the bottle. On the inside of this sleeve is a six-digit serial number. Once you retrieve this number, head online to www.FivePercentBack.org and click through to the Donation page. Users get to pick from dozens of charities that represent multiple areas: health and wellness, the environment, the outdoors, children and others. Input your information, hit submit and you’ve done your part to contribute to a worthy cause!
Then, each quarter, Hydro Flask tallies up the votes and cuts a check to all the charity organizations that hit the minimum donation amount. It’s an easy process for customers to donate and an important act for Hydro Flask, who believes that great causes and great products go hand-in-hand. Making a difference in the local and greater community is deeply engrained in our company, our employees and our values.
