Tahoe Blue Vodka keeps its promises and donates $100,000 to Lake Tahoe clean up efforts with non-profit Clean Up The Lake

Lying beneath the surface of Lake Tahoe – that is known throughout the world for its famed clarity and brilliant blue waters – thousands of pounds of trash are breaking apart and impacting the lake’s aquatic habitats. 

And, as many vodka lovers know, the prized lake was also the original inspiration for the creation of Tahoe Blue Vodka which is now the fastest-growing vodka brand in Northern Nevada and Northern California.  

Launched in May 2021, and with the help of a scuba dive team of dedicated professionals and volunteers, an unprecedented effort is now underway to remove built-up trash.

To stay true to its brand promise to always give back, Tahoe Blue Vodka has stepped up to help make an extraordinary and massive clean-up effort happen around the entire 72-miles of Lake Tahoe.

Launched in May 2021, and with the help of a scuba dive team of dedicated professionals and volunteers, an unprecedented effort is now underway to remove built-up trash.

During previous recoveries, dive crews have removed tires, golf balls, sunglasses, towels, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, iPhones, boat anchors, pieces of boats and more from Lake Tahoe.

Ultimately, the unparalleled effort will help to maintain the water’s clarity for decades to come and for generations of families to enjoy.

Tahoe Blue Vodka supports the massive clean up effort with Clean Up The Lake to remove trash and debris from beautiful Lake Tahoe.

Spearheaded by the non-profit Clean Up The Lake, the ambitious effort was funded by contributions raised by the Tahoe Fund from more than 135 businesses and people who donated to the cause.

The fundraising campaign was spurred by an initial and immediate $100,000 match offered by Tahoe Blue Vodka, the proud title sponsor for the clean-up effort.  

Vodka enthusiasts are clearly taking note and supporting the award-winning vodka by asking for the brand by name in restaurants, bars, and retail establishments. 

Above and beyond the amazing commitment to giving back, the vodka is unique as it is crafted from the very waters of the prized lake…which is why TAHOE BLUE TASTES BETTER.
