It's important for us to offer the highest quality products that contribute to a healthy and safe environment
Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2009
Since a 2008 government report revealed that cancer-causing chemicals can be found in many plastics used to make some water bottles, more people are choosing to dump the plastic and invest in stainless steel. Stainless steel water bottles have also gained popularity during the hot months this summer amidst the environmentally friendly crowd as an alternative to wasting plastic water bottles. According to BusinessWeek, Americans throw away 38 billion plastic water bottles per year, only 10% of which are recycled. While there are a variety of trendy stainless steel water bottles on the market to choose from, a new internet marketplace has created one that can be customized to fit anyone's style.
Gliffik (http://www.gliffik.com) is committed to providing products that contribute to a cleaner and healthier world including organic tees, reusable lunch kits and a 16oz. food grade stainless steel bottle with a screw top lid and carabineer to attach to a backpack or sports bag when on the go. Gliffik stainless steel water bottles are fully customizable, allowing users to personalize with their name, create their own design, or choose from hundreds of already designed "Gliffs" to leave their mark on each item.
Gliffik also offers the opportunity for water bottle designers to become Gliffik marketers; to make money while creating and selling. Designers can earn money on their own personal Gliffik Web sites by selling their designs for commissions and on any other products that Gliffik markets. Gliffik is enabling content owners to monetize their personal collection of designs to consumers who can then customize the products for their own use.
"It's important for us to offer the highest quality products that contribute to a healthy and safe environment," said Brewster Crosby, president and CEO of Gliffik. "Gliffik patrons can not only express their creativity, but use responsible products while doing so."

Gliffik is also copyright compliant with their PINKiTUDE brand partner, MGM, in selling rings, cuffs and pendants, with 5% of the proceeds from these products going to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
