In 2009, entrepreneur and outdoor adventurer, Bryan Papé wanted to create a more functional, lifestyle water bottle. A bottle that would be simple to use and could also be uniquely customized. In the process of creating MiiR, Bryan learned that nearly a billion people don't have access to clean drinking water. Wanting to help, he incorporated a giving initiative directly into the brand. For every MiiR bottle purchased one person is given clean water for an entire year.
