Founded in 2008 by pro snowboarder Jussi Oksanen to meet his very specific needs. It was while filming for a snowboard film in Alaska in 2008 that Jussi, along with friend and filmmaker, Brad Kremer, realised just how much the trail of single-use plastic water bottles was tarnishing their travels and the environment. Jussi’s search for a reusable bottle that met both his hydration needs and met his aesthetic vision led him to starting Mizu to make a product that could, his passion for a plastic free playground matched only by his passion for creating durable products for like-minded people.
