To our treasured Asobu Customers,
Eric here, founder and CEO of Asobu Bottle. I’m sure over the last couple of days you’ve been receiving emails from organizations like ours, reaching out to discuss measures being taken in regards to COVID-19 – or the Coronavirus – that’s been quickly spreading across the planet.
All of those emails are important, because the health and safety of the people of this planet should always be everyone’s first priority, and we’re no different. So consider this our turn to let you know what we’re doing, and what you should know about our products, in general.
First, the question we’ve been getting asked the most: Yes, our products are made in China, as are a large portion of manufactured products used the world over. But we believe in quality, and to that end, you should know that our products are made in a state-of-the-art factory in Shanghai that’s been inspected and approved by SGS. We’re also in constant contact with our factory to ensure the health of everyone who works for us. As of now, all of our factory workers have been through a mandatory two-week quarantine process, and we’re back up and running. Extra safety and sanitation measures have been put in place, and the factory has stepped up its already-regular cleaning schedule.
When it comes to the products themselves, before packaging, we put all of our stainless steel through a high-level sterilization process meant to remove any final contaminants leftover during manufacturing. This ensures that your products shipped to you are of the highest quality, and this is a practice we’ve had in place since the first bottle came off the assembly line.
Something else to keep in mind. Now, more than ever, it’s important for you to carry your own beverages with you, wherever you go. Not just for the survival of our planet, but for your own health and safety, as well. When you walk out your front door with your Asobu coffee mug or water bottle, you know exactly where it’s been; no one packaged that container other than you. And you don’t have to worry about drinking from public fountains, or purchasing single-use bottles, whose origins you can’t be as sure of as what’s in any of your Asobu products that you've filled yourself. Plus, carrying one of your Asobu water bottles also has the added benefit of being able to keep you hydrated – a key component for staying healthy during these uncertain times.
So keep these in mind as we all work to stay healthy:
Saving the planet and keeping you healthy are our #1 priorities here at Asobu Bottle. If you have any questions about the products you currently own, or items you’ve been thinking about purchasing, feel free to reach out to us at any time, via Facebook, Instagram, or through our contact portal on our website.
Stay Safe, Everybody.
CEO, Asobu Bottle
