We love our CamelBak water bottles, which, like us, sometimes take quite a beating during a competition. We particularly love seeing the look of envy on the eyes of the opposing teams as we stay hydrated with our very own reusable RockStars-logoed bottles

Petaluma, CA (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
From Los Angeles to Austin, Texas, to Brooklyn, N.Y. -- what started in Northern California as a mini-movement to encourage the use of reusable water bottles, has now gone nationwide.
Three wild and wacky sports teams – the Los Angeles Racing Dragons, the Austin RockStars Handball Club and the Zeus’ Beard Brooklyn Kickball Team – have ditched their disposals as the newest members of CamelBak’s “Official Water Bottle Of” campaign. The campaign is designed to celebrate the less serious side of sport while underscoring the importance of eliminating plastic water bottle consumption and waste.
Chosen by CamelBak for their unique, if not crazy, take on sporting endeavors, each of the new teams shares a passion for having a good time playing a sport they love while doing something good for the environment.
Meet the newest members:
Los Angeles Racing Dragons: Though still relatively unknown, Dragon Boat racing, which originated in China, is one of the fastest growing international sports. The Los Angeles Racing Dragons, who affectionately refer to themselves as LARD, have put fun and family ahead of competition, and they have a loyal following to show for it.
Austin RockStars Handball Club: Though fun is a big part of the lure, the RockStars, who are members of the Texas Team Handball Club, take the sport of American Speed Handball very seriously. This intense team game is extremely fast and aggressive.
Zeus’ Beard: Just the thought of kickball brings back memories of good times in the school playground. Well, these big kids from Brooklyn, who play in the co-ed league, definitely know how to have a good time while working up a big thirst – for water during the game and a keg afterwards.
“We love our CamelBak water bottles, which, like us, sometimes take quite a beating during a competition,” said Mike Strong of the Austin RockStars. “We particularly love seeing the look of envy on the eyes of the opposing teams as we stay hydrated with our very own reusable RockStars-logoed bottles.”
