Seattle, Wash. (April 6, 2015) – AVEX, a leading reusable water bottle brand for outdoor adventurers, is proud to join The Conservation Alliance as a new member supporting the organization’s mission in protecting and preserving North America’s last wild spaces. The official partnership will be announced at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show this August.

“We are excited to join this great outdoor alliance in standing behind its efforts in protecting the wild spaces that still exist within North America,” said Neil Bradshaw, Business Development and Event Manager at AVEX. “We strive to create impact in the performance of our products, the same way we hope to provide impact for the Alliance in our new membership. As a member, we hope to utilize our company’s passion for the outdoors in providing The Conservation Alliance with any and all support we can offer.”

As a member of the Conservation Alliance, AVEX will play a key role in the distribution of Conservation Alliance grant funds. AVEX will have the opportunity to nominate two projects and cast one ballot for each bi-annual grant funding cycle.

“With so many incredible partners, we are excited to have AVEX join the list,” said John Sterling, Executive Director of The Conservation Alliance. “AVEX joins us and the rest of our members in a collective commitment to fund local, grassroots conservation projects. We know that with AVEX’s footprint in the outdoor industry and passion for the outdoors, they have a lot to offer The Conservation Alliance.”

With the help and support of its members, The Conservation Alliance has helped protect 44 million acres, 2,945 river miles, removed or halted 26 dams, purchased 10 climbing areas and designated five marine reserves.

Additionally, The Conservation Alliance has created a video to celebrate their members, their commitment to conservation and the work and successes of their grantees. You can view the video here:
