For the Hiking-Biking-Nature-Loving-Mindful-Activist
I bought one of these water bottles during a beautiful trip to Vancouver island, as a sweet souvenir of a journey to Tofino. I love the unique drawings on the bottles, and the fact that they keep your liquids warm up to 12 and cold up to 24 hours. Unfortunately I lost the bottle, but I know I will be buying a new one as soon as I return to Canada. Or when someone gifts me one – whichever comes first. Support native artists and reduce waste and the hormonal effects of drinking out of plastic bottles, by getting one of these beautiful bottles!
I’ll confess: I bought this last year, and have yet to get it started. Who will join in to keep me accountable?

“so many dear people helped me write and live these stories. the two summers i spent in alaska, half the winter in louisiana and the other half holed up in my van in portland, and then the first year in hawaii were transformational and pivotal to shaping me into who i am today. those 3 years before i met my mother would offer a reclaiming of my name, finding new faith and fever for my own spiritual connection to Creator, and discovering first love. these were just a few of the important discoveries for a young cub set on exploring the world and finding himself amongst the wild.” – Nahko
