Simple Modern is an Oklahoma water bottle and tumbler company making the water crisis history through a new partnership with Water4. As a company, Simple Modern gives away at least 10% of profits each year to causes that help others, and we’re honored they chose Water4 as one of their partners in 2019.
“Simple Modern is a catalyst for good, and we’re honored to be part of multiplying their impact,” said Water4 CEO, Matt Hangen. “Water4 is so grateful to have them as partners in our shared fight to end the water crisis.”
Simple Modern has always been more than a water bottle and tumbler company. The company’s founders, Mike Beckham, Bryan Porter, and Micah Ames believed sharing generously made their lives more meaningful and wanted to build that belief into their business. They understood that keeping people hydrated was more than just their business – it was their responsibility. That vision lives on today in Simple Modern’s commitment to empower Water4’s local partners to quench the thirst of the people we serve together.
After connecting with Water4 in 2018, Chief Sales Officer Carson Rock saw an opportunity to change the lives of people beyond Simple Modern’s customer base. An employee-owned company, Simple Modern not only shared Water4’s faith and passion for ending the water crisis, but they also connected with our commitment to empowering local entrepreneurs to address their own community’s needs for safe water:
“We were drawn to Water4’s sustainable approach to ending the water crisis and their desire to see lives changed. We love their entrepreneurial model, and how they empower people in local communities to make an impact. They are creating a lasting impact, and we are excited to be a part of it.”
Simple Modern started partnering with Water4 last fall by providing several hundred custom water bottles as giveaways at the Water4 gala. Earlier this year, they made a gift that, when doubled by Water4’s new donor match, will empower our local partners to provide water to 48 new communities in 2019!
“We are excited to partner with Water4 because we believe every human has value. We love that Water4 values sustainability, providing clean water in communities that will impact multiple generations,” said Bryan Porter, Chief Operations Officer.
