Nalgene Water Fund Helps Finance Critically Needed Water Deliveries to Navajo Nation
Sales from specially designed bottle by Diné Artist Jaden Redhair directly give back to community
In November 2020, Nalgene launched the limited edition “Tó éí iiná” (Water is Life) reusable bottle to benefit Navajo Nation as part of its Nalgene Water Fund to promote awareness about access to clean water in the U.S. The bottle features a striking landscape of Monument Valley by Diné designer Jaden Redhair, 20, member of the Jemez Clan, and a life-long Navajo Nation, resident.
With record day-of launch sales, Nalgene fans from around the country showed their strong support for the Navajo people. Now, just six months later, proceeds from this popular bottle are directly impacting Navajo Nation residents. The Nalgene Water Fund recently donated $14,500 to Dig Deep, a human rights nonprofit serving the 2.2 million+ Americans without sinks, bathtubs, or toilets. The money will specifically go to the Navajo Water Project, a community-managed utility alternative that brings hot and cold running water to hundreds of Navajo homes across three states.
