Dark Horse Comics launching line of collectible water bottles

A portion of the Dark Horse Comics water bottles will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund.

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has announced they’re getting into the water bottle business. More specifically collectible water bottle business with designs from popular Dark Horse series like Umbrella Academy, Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher, and more. Set for release starting in February 2021, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund. More on the EDF here.

Dark Horse CEO Mike Richardson had this to say:

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“A newly released study says that a mind-bending 53 trillion metric tons of plastic pollution will be in our oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams by 2030. Plastic has been found in everything from whales to zooplankton, and is affecting nearly all living creatures. Hundreds of different animal species are known to have suffered from entanglement and ingestion of plastic debris. Plastic debris is estimated to kill more than 100,000 marine mammals annually, as well as millions of birds and fishes.

Plastics break down, but they don’t go away. Microplastics have worked their way through the food chain into humans and researchers believe that plastic particles could affect the digestive system’s immune response. The leading soft drink company in the U.S. itself produces roughly 120 billion plastic bottles per year.

So what to do?

Well, each of us can reduce the amount of plastic we are responsible for one. We can make a change in the number of plastic water bottles we purchase and throw away. With these new water bottles and more on the way, we wanted to create a fun alternative to plastic to help just a little with the world’s plastic situation. A portion of each bottle we sell will be donated to the Environmental Defense Fund, an organization dedicated to preserving the world’s natural resources.

We can all help.”

The first batch of water bottles will retail for $19.99 and arrive on February 10, 2020. Pre-order now from your local comic shop.
