Maybe it was fresh thinking – inspired by the Cascadian mountain air, or joyfulness – induced by long stretches of sunshine, but something amazing was happening in Bend, Oregon when Rick Fredland created the first Silipint in 2010. Always the inventor, Rick had already created the world’s first silicone dog bowl – the Tazlab Aqua-Fur. Looking for new ways to promote this incredibly simple yet versatile material, he thought, “Why not a pint glass?” With enthusiastic support from the community, Rick brought together a team connected by their shared vision for innovative, thirst-quenching solutions. The response was overwhelming and soon the company and adventure was launched.
