Graphic Glass for Good
According to Faucet Face, 2.5 million plastic bottles are thrown away every hour. And that’s just in the US alone.
To combat this global issue, Mason Gentry set up Faucet Face, a social enterprise, to encourage us to drink more tap water by selling beautifully designed and reusable glass bottles to drink it from.
Pointing out that “everything tastes better in glass”, the benefits are not only a much nicer way to drink water but a portion of the profits go towards helping others drink clean water too. For each bottle sold a minimum of 100 litres of drinking water is provided to families in India who suffer from contaminated river water.
The thick, quality bottles feature playful lettering by Seb Lester and Ray Fenwick. Mason showed me some of the original sketches, inspired by early Pepsi-Cola bottle lettering.
Awesome, great example of beautiful typography and sustainable design.
