Matt Damon has been involved in charity
efforts for a long time (he is part of the Not On Our Watch project
which focuses on bringing attention to mass atrocities like the situation in Darfur). His latest effort is Water.org which he co-founded with Gary White. Water.org is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America working with local partners to provide access to safe water and sanitation. Damon and his charity have developed attractive limited edition metal water bottles
that are environmentally friendly and 100% of the profits go directly to support nearly a billion people in the world who lack clean water.
The CamelBak(R) Better Bottle has an integrated handle and hold 16 ounces. The double-wall insulated stainless bottle features
vacuum insulation to keep beverages cool for hours. The bottles are made from medical-grade stainless steel, with no inner liners or plastic coatings. The design
was a collaborative effort of Kyle Damon, his wife Lori, designer
Elissa Traher of Traher Design, and artist, Jane Dixon. The steel bottle sells for $24.95
and 100% of the profits, about $10 go to fund the life-changing work of Water.org.
