Allpress Espresso x Project PARGO

To finish 2021 on a high note, we’ve partnered with our friends Ellie and Dylan at Project PARGO to create a run of limited-edition drinkware. With every PARGO bottle purchased, a person in need will gain access to clean water.

Project Pargo was born “on the road in the back of a camper, where simple things matter”. Their thoughtfully designed drinkware and bottles are built to take you anywhere and everywhere.

Their BPA and toxic-free stainless-steel bottles are double-wall insulated to keep drinks seriously hot or cold for hours. Designed to last the test of time, you’ll experience zero transfer from one drink to another.

Designed to fit in most cup holders with a scratch-resistant matte coating, our premium bottles are finished with the iconic Allpress Espresso and Project PARGO logos.  

This collaboration shines true to Allpress and PARGO’s approach to radical partnerships; inspiring human connection and creating beautiful objects that influence more sustainable behaviour. 

About Project PARGO 

Ellie and Dylan have spent years travelling through some of the world's most remote and poverty-stricken villages.

After a day of spearfishing with local farmers in El Salvador, Ellie and Dylan noticed that none of the locals drank water throughout the day. Most water supplies readily available to the communities are contaminated and not safe for drinking, and definitely not worth the risk.

This incident highlighted the challenges faced by communities living in developing countries. The couple conceptualised Project PARGO soon after they had learned their friends’ reality- “clean water is life, and unfortunately, not everybody's got it”.

How is Project Pargo Providing clean water? 

The brand’s ethos is embedded in adventure and consciousness; to develop a model that gives back to communities they’ve visited in their travels. 

For example, in one of the projects for Waves for Water (W4W)- a non-profit organisation focused on correcting the imbalances of water scarcity in developing communities around the world, the team helped fund the implementation of the Sawyer Water Filtration System to communities in serious need of an improved water source.

After all, the most beautiful way to celebrate the holiday season is by giving back.
