ZenWTR, the premium alkaline water and world’s first and only beverage in a bottle made from 100% recycled, certified ocean-bound plastic, today announced that professional golfers, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau, have joined its roster of athlete investors. The two are supporting the brand’s mission to help restore the world’s oceans and reduce the amount of plastic polluting coastal environments, specifically through ZenWTR’s quest to rescue 50 million pounds of ocean-bound plastic by 2025.
“It’s important for us to take action now and support companies that will allow our environment to thrive into the future,” said Phil Mickelson, ZenWTR investor and World Golf Hall of Famer. “I’m passionate about ZenWTR’s dedication to ocean conservation and I’m a huge fan of their amazing water so I couldn’t be more excited to announce my support for ZenWTR as an investor.”
“Ocean pollution is a growing problem that has devastating effects on our environment,” said Bryson DeChambeau, ZenWTR investor and ‘The Scientist’ of golf. “As someone who loves learning, and specifically science, it’s exciting to watch the impact ZenWTR is making through the supply chain they’ve developed to rescue ocean-bound plastic, which prevents ocean pollution.”
