About Hydro Flask
Hydro Flask® began in the summer of 2009 with the aim of creating a beverage bottle that truly performed in every environment. The end result was the only all-insulated bottle company in the world that exclusively produced double-wall vacuum insulated bottles that are BPA and toxin free. Using only high-quality 18/8 stainless steel, the bottles keep hot liquids hot, and cold liquids cold. Hydro Flasks are stylish, durable, lightweight, reusable, and 100% recyclable. Hydro Flask simultaneously launched FivePercentBack.orgTM to offer a giveback program from profits of each bottle sold to be put toward a charity selected by the consumer.
