MiiR water bottles create clean water in africa
In December the Services + Sales teams searched for promotional items that would reflect the unique culture of Pierce County. We found an incredible company and product to create something unique that will keep Tacoma + Pierce County on the meeting planner's mind.

MiiR produces customizable water bottles and donates $1 of every sale to clean water in Africa. MiiR CEO Bryan Papé and the MiiR team actually went to Liberia and our purchase helped contribute to their creation of a new well.

The water bottles will be given to special clients to encourage repeat meetings in Tacoma + Pierce County and they will be for sale in the Visitor Information Center. We will also offer MiiR water bottles in the Conference Responsibility Program, a new program encouraging meeting planners to act locally and make an impact globally through sustainable and socially responsible choices.

We couldn't have found a more exciting water bottle!

What to do this weekend: 1/20 - 1/22

Happy Friday, Pierce County!
This time of year one of my favorite things to do is try something new and creative. The cloudy skies make being inside so appealing, but I don't want to just sit around indoors all weekend! Luckily, scattered throughout Pierce County there are plenty of creative enterprises who can help artistically challenged individuals like myself create something to display in my home, drink my morning coffee out of, or even give as a gift to a friend with an upcoming birthday!
