Brand Highlight: Miir

September 10, 2021

A high-quality product and an awesome trackable give back, Miir continues to impress.

Founder and CEO Bryan Papé credits a customer’s excitement—upon learning that the water bottle they had purchased helped fund a clean water project in Liberia—for making him realize that involving customers in the company's philanthropy could be so much more impactful than simply handing money over to charity. Now MiiR customers are invited to experience the story behind their purchase by registering the Give Code™ found on the base of their MiiR product.

The integrity of MiiR's products, coupled with their above-and-beyond commitment to social and environmental causes, is no doubt why MiiR was chosen to create custom drinkware for Starbucks, Blue Bottle Coffee, and Patagonia (for Patagonia MiiR is the exclusive drinkware supplier), along with thousands of upscale retailers and coffee shops around the world. And that’s why MiiR is an ideal brand to choose when putting together your customized corporate swag for prospects, customers and employees. You’ll find MiiR and other in-demand brands plus expert advice when you work with Gemnote to curate a collection of gifts and promotional giveaways that is appealing and positively reflects your company culture and values.

The Beauty of Simplicity and Sustainability

The very first MiiR stainless steel water bottle was designed to easily go from a car’s cup holder to a bag or backpack (without leaking) and with an opening just large enough to accomodate ice cubes but not so wide that you would end up with a faceful of water when trying to drink. As they have expanded their line, they craft all of their drinkware with 18/8 medical-grade stainless steel, BPA-free of course, because it doesn't transfer flavor and leaves no metal aftertaste. Best of all, MiiR backs their drinkware with a lifetime warranty. As they like to say, “the longer you live, the longer your warranty!” Their line includes a complete range of drinkware, including MiiR wine tumblers and MiiR coffee tumblers.

The Bottle That Started it All

The single-wall Narrow Mouth Bottle (shown right) was created to be the perfect adventure companion with a narrow opening for the easiest sipping without getting your chin and cheeks drenched. Customers love its lightweight design, the Perfect Seal™ lid that’s guaranteed not to leak, and the built-in handle. And, of course, the MiiR water bottle fits most cup holders. If you’re interested in a MiiR water bottle review, how’s this—the 27 oz. version of MiiR’s Narrow Mouth Bottle was chosen by Urban Hiker for their Classic Pick award.

The MiiR Insulated Water Bottle (shown left) has the same great features with the added benefit of keeping cold things cold for 24+ hours and hot things hot for up to 12 hours. Both are very budget-friendly additions to any swag lineup.

Not Your Grandad’s Camp Cup

This MiiR mug is a modern take on the old enamel camp cup of past generations. The Camp Cup boasts a sleek aesthetic plus durability and functionality in four sizes: 8, 12, 16 or 20 oz. Plus, it features Thermo 3D® double wall vacuum insulation and a press-fit slide lid to keep hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold without ever breaking a sweat. This design is the basis for the 12 oz. Moon Blue Harvest MiiR Starbucks mug.

You Can Take It With You

So sleek, yet so functional! The roomy MiiR Olympus computer backpack includes a padded, zippered compartment that will hold up to a 15" laptop, interior mesh organizer panel with zippered mesh pocket, dual elastic mesh side pockets for water bottle and such, plus a roomy front pocket with magnetic snap closure. Fill a MiiR Olympus 20I computer backpack with other swag to make an impressive onboarding package for new hires.

Protect Your Coffee

Don’t invest in a great coffee cup and then fill it with stale brew. MiiR’s innovative Coffee Canister will keep your coffee fresh and tasty thanks to a unique interior accordion-style seal that compresses to kick out oxygen and lock in flavor. This durable stainless steel canister holds a standard 12 oz bag of beans (whole or ground) and is a favorite of homebodies and campers.

Howlers and Growlers for Party Animals

When you’ve got a crowd on hand or you just want to have plenty of your favorite beverage at the ready, the insulated 32 oz. Howler and/or the 64 oz. Growler make it so easy. An intuitive hinge on the lid locks in place when open to make pouring easy. Both feature Thermo 3D® double wall vacuum insulation and a threadless lid with pressure locking clasp to seal in carbonation. Yes, that’s right, they can accommodate your carbonated faves and keep them nice and bubbly for hours on end.


Open Wide and Say Ahhhh

The insulated MiiR Wide Mouth water bottle collection comes in four sizes and is perfect for today’s on-the-go lifestyle. Customers love the MiiR water bottle lid with its leak-proof seal and top handle for ease of carrying. And everyone loves a wide mouth insulated bottle for the ease of handling chunky soups and other edibles, adding ice to your beverages, and, of course, making clean-up a snap.

Accident Insurance

Other tumblers tout their “leak-resistant” lids, but the lid on the  MiiR Travel Tumbler is totally leak-proof. Yep! It really does keep your to-go beverage from spilling no matter where you go! Plus, the slanted lid design adds a bit of modern flair to the tumbler’s sleek silhouette—the perfect backdrop for your company’s logo.

Food to Go

A must-have for your dining pleasure on the go, the insulated MiiR Food Canister comes in two sizes and has innovative design features that makes it the favorite for lunch boxes everywhere:

  • Easy-open lid won’t lock under pressure
  • Nesting bowl tucked inside to keep foods separate
  • Interior measure markers for precise portions

And, yes, the MiiR canister keeps food at the perfect temp for hours. According to one MiiR food canister review, soup was still hot after the lid had been off for 45 minutes. Throw this to-go essential into your MiiR backpack and know that even many hours later, your food will be just the way you like it.

Gourmet to Go

A lunch bag or mini beverage cooler? MiiR’s durable soft-sided Olympus Lunch Cooler is both! It will hold 9 beverage cans or your perfect meal. It features a removable insert with insulation made from recycled water bottles. Zippered top mesh compartment will separately store ice packs (not included) or other items. Fill this container with small branded swag to make a cool onboarding gift set.

It’s a Tall Order

The 16 oz. stainless steel Tall Boy is more than a reusable beer can. These sleek modern tumblers make any beverage seem a little more special, and their unbreakable durability makes them the best choice around the pool or around the campfire. Imagine a set of this stainless MiiR tumbler custom engraved with your company’s logo. Nice!

These Boots Aren’t Made for Walking

The MiiR Silicone Boot is a clever little accessory designed to enhance your MiiR tumbler or bottle's grip and protect against minor dings and dents—because you’re not always so careful are you? And it comes in six colors so you can have a little fun mixing and matching.

It’s the Little Things

This zippered pouch is just the ticket for organizing your suitcase or backpack for your next adventure, or simply for stashing your everyday essentials. You’ll appreciate the little details this design features, like:

  • Fully lined interior with interior zippered pocket
  • Exterior loop can be used as an attachment point
  • Water-resistant zipper 

Choosing Well

As you can see, MiiR products are innovative enough to make them a great choice for gifts. What makes MiiR products the best choice is the company’s demonstrated commitment to social and environmental improvement. MiiR is a certified B Corp, Climate Neutral certified, and proud members of 1% For The Planet and The Conservation Alliance. The company is a strong advocate for climate policy change and works with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation to offset its footprint. 

In short, MiiR walks their talk—giving back is not an ad hoc provision to boost their image—and they choose people and the planet over demands of the bottom line every time. Since its inception, MiiR’s giving has totalled more than $1,500,000 and they’ve empowered the lives of 115,000+ people worldwide. The company releases an Annual Impact Report much like a non-profit would, and has trademarked their Product to Project® model wherein every MiiR product sold helps fund trackable giving projects in one of three core categories—water, environment, and communities.
