MiiR products are created with function and simplicity in
mind, and with an end result to further improve lives and build community.
We call ourselves a Product to Project™ company, which is our way
of saying every purchase of a MiiR product supports a trackable
giving project. We accomplish this by giving 3% of revenue to
clean water and health projects around the world, and reporting
back to our customers GPS coordinates, photos and achieved outcomes
for total transparency.
The meaning of MiiR
The meaning behind MiiR (pronounced “mEEr”) is
twofold, both of which emphasize the worthy pursuit of making our
world a better place to live, protect and enjoy.
The first is a tribute to John Muir, a rugged mountaineer and
protector and advocate of America’s treasured lands in the late
1800’s to early 1900’s. Considered the “Father of the National Parks”
that we know and love today, Muir penned the beloved quote “the mountains
are calling and I must go.”
The second borrows from Eastern European languages; “mir” loosely
translates to “world” or “peace,” serving as a reminder that each
of us plays a role in achieving harmony on a global scale, including
social and environmental efforts.
What is a B-Corp?
“B Corp is to business what Fair Trade
certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification
is to milk.” B Corps are for-profit companies certified
by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of
social and environmental performance, accountability,
To be certified as a B Corp, a company must score at least
80/200 points on their B Impact assessment. In 2016 MiiR
was awarded a score of 117/200, scoring highest in the community section.

What is 1% for the Planet?
1% for the Planet is a global network of businesses, nonprofits
and individuals working together for a healthy planet.

How does MiiR give?
We give 3% of revenue to carefully
selected nonprofit organizations with a proven track record.
Our giving partners value relationship, progress and transparency,
and implement sustainable methods of empowerment, investing in
clean water and health projects around the world. These two
huge social and environmental issues are the cornerstones of
Examples of completed projects range from the installation
of water filtration systems, drinking and handwashing stations
in public schools in Kathmandu, Nepal, to the purchase of
fixtures and equipment (things like desks and chalkboards)
to support the opening of Chariot High School in Buchanan, Liberia.
What is a Give Code?
A Give Code™ is a powerful tool that connects our customers to our giving.
Every MiiR product comes with a Give Code™ for total
transparency. We invite our customers to register their Give Code™
to track the impact of their purchase, receiving from us information
and updates on the assigned giving project, including GPS coordinates,
photos and achieved outcomes.

Hydration Use & Care
Are MiiR hydration products dishwasher safe?
We recommend hand washing howlers, growlers, food canisters and our colored
or screen printed products. With the exception of the natural stainless steel,
all our hydration products feature either a water-based paint followed by a
clear protective coating, or a powder coating, which can deteriorate when
regularly exposed to high water temperatures and the rigorous environment of a
dishwasher. For best results, wash your MiiR product with a long-handled soft
bristle brush, soap, and warm water.
Can my MiiR go in the freezer?
No. When water expands into a solid, it can damage the micro-welds
that keep the bottle intact. Freezing your MiiR product will put
your bottle’s warranty on ice.
Can my MiiR go in the microwave?
No. All MiiR hydration products are made of stainless steel, and not made for the microwave.
Can my MiiR hold carbonated beverages?
Our growlers, howlers, pints, and cups are all designed to carry carbonated beverages.
Our twist-off lid bottles and containers, however, are not made to hold carbonated contents.
Health & Safety
What materials are used for MiiR hydration products?
Every MiiR hydration vessel is produced with high quality 18/8 stainless steel.
Our bottle lids are made of polypropylene #5, and our press-fit lids are made of Eastman Tritan™.
Both of these plastics have been tested and neither are known to leach any harmful chemicals,
or present any other health risks. They carry no bisphenols (BPA, BPS, etc), estrogenic activity
(EA or estrogen leaching), or androgenic activity (AA or testosterone leaching).
What paint is used for MiiR hydration products?
The current MiiR hydration line has a powder coat finish. The coating is first
applied as a dry powder, and then cured under heat. Powder coat finishes are
typically tougher and longer lasting than traditional paint.
Do MiiR hydration products contain or leach any potentially harmful chemicals, like BPA?
Not a chance. Here at MiiR, we continually and proactively evaluate the materials in our products. We are
dedicated to ensuring that our materials are safe and environmentally friendly, allowing us to offer
durable and high quality products. Our stainless steel products and polypropylene/Eastman Tritan lids have
all been tested and carry no bisphenols (BPA, BPS, etc), estrogenic activity (EA or estrogen leaching),
or androgenic activity (AA or testosterone leaching).
What materials are used for MiiR bags?
All bags in the MiiR lineup are made with 630D durable water repellent nylon.

Warranty claims should be sent to email@example.com and are valid for one year from the date of purchase.

If you wish to return your purchased bicycle that has no manufacturer defect, you may do so within
7 days of delivery. All returned items must be in unused, brand new condition, and shipped back in
the original packaging. The customer is responsible for the cost of return shipping as well as a
15% re-stocking fee. Beyond the first 7 days of receiving your order, all products are non-returnable,
non-refundable, and non-exchangeable. If a returned item is received by MiiR and damaged due to
negligent packaging or re-packaging by the customer, we will be unable to issue a refund.
