When the eco-chic diva in Shannon, founder of Otterbottle surfaced, she not only wanted to make a difference but wanted a bottle that spoke to her individual style. 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 and healthy. 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!
