Since a very young age, Shannon Andrukow has been a health enthusiast and environmentalist keen on preserving the planet for her family and future generations. Advocating the importance of small steps to saving the environment to friends and family (reducing consumerism, reusing products and avoiding perishable ones, driving less, recycling, turning out lights, reducing water use, seeking renewable energy sources, encouraging green products for the household, buying local, and so on), Andrukow has always prided herself on her dedication to helping Mother Earth. After having kids, she became even more health-conscious and her inner-environmentalist emerged in full force. Andrukow had been researching Bisphenol A (BPA) for a number of years (long before Health Canada’s announcement to ban BPA) and after testing a couple of “sustainable” water bottles Shannon found that she was not satisfied with the look and performance of those bottles. Always a major proponent of reusable containers, the options for a safe and stylish bottle at the time were extremely limited. Shannon’s eco-chic diva surfaced and she not only wanted to make a difference but she also wanted a bottle that spoke to her individual style. Not to mention that she also wanted to purchase from a Canadian company that supported our environment – something that was harder to do than she thought it would be! There was no such company out there, so she decided to make it her personal mission to create one. She finally decided to create Otterbottle Inc. when she explored the idea with her husband and good friends. Her close friend provided her with the final nudge that she needed by encouraging her to proceed with the thought of starting a company that addressed all her concerns. Andrukow developed Otterbottle Inc.– the name was born out of her desire to find a name that represented something pure, healthy and, of course, Canadian. The otter, an animal that lives in the water that we all need to protect, was a perfect fit. What better than to have a company name that is virtually impossible to forget! For Shannon, founding Otterbottle Inc. has allowed her to do what she loves most in life; spend her days at home with her kids and make a difference for the earth that she wants to preserve.
