Local Weather is a mind and body hydration beverage. It is a ‘sports’ drink created for today’s version of performance. Everything in the traditional “sports drink” category felt outdated to us. We consistently see a focus on traditional and typical sports, elite professional athletes, body-only hydration, high levels of sugar…and the list goes on.

We started Local Weather because we wanted healthier drinks that could benefit our kind of movement and performance, like…all the kinds - including our minds. We found that there are a lot of great ingredients out there that can help with both our physical and mental performance, and there are ways to make this category more sustainable (aluminum!) and more accessible. So, here we are. Actual humans using their bodies and minds in actual ways, evolving the performance drinks category into the 21st century.
Well, when we dove into making this drink a reality, we couldn’t help but notice we utilized weather to talk about our problems that we were trying to solve: our brains feeling cloudy, or wanting to be lightning fast on our skates. And it occurred to us that we all have our own personal weather - but we can change it. We loved the idea of being able to fix our local weather. That and…we love the notion that it’s a universal ice breaker. No matter who you are, or where you come from, you can make a new friend by starting a conversation with “how’s the weather where you are?.” Local Weather brings us together.
When we looked at the sports drinks on the shelf, everything looked the same. They were all designed for the same type of consumer, a career athlete. Bold, aggressive, masculine. So many consumers are being left out of the conversation. We found that only 16% of people even identify as “athletes”. Most consumers are just active, move in different ways - everything from traditional sports, to “less traditional” things like roller skating, dancing, MMA. And for a growing percentage of us, performance isn’t necessarily physical i.e. eSports. But also…painting, performing on a stage, content creating…the list goes on. Who gets to say that we don’t need or deserve performance hydration drinks too?

First, even slight dehydration has significant effects on mind function. So we’ve added more electrolytes than leading sports drinks. And from all natural sources such as coconut water and pink himalayan sea salt. Our other electrolytes are derived from potassium and magnesium, which help support muscle and nerve function.

Secondly, we wanted to help mind performance as well. Because this applies to everyone - even those playing sports need to have their head in the game. We’ve included functional ingredients called nootropics that support mental stamina, function, and performance. This includes Ashwagandha, L-Theanine (an amino acid from green tea, minus the caffeine), and L-Tyrosine (an amino acid found in natural sources such as bananas, avocados, pumpkin seeds and others). Notably, these ingredients do not contain caffeine, so you won’t experience any jitters.

We worked closely with sports nutrition expert Angie Asche, MS, RD, CSSD to ensure proper mind + body hydration.

The product is all-natural and non-GMO.

And last but not least, we’re sustainable. Even with supply chain shortages, we are determined to use an aluminum bottle unlike the rest of the sports drink category. Aluminum is infinitely recyclable whereas plastic can really only be reused once before it breaks down too much to be safe. And, we chose a bottle that closes for easier use in more active support muscle and nerve function.
Sustainability matters to us. We hate that the sports drink category uses plastic. Only 8% of plastic is recycled. The rest exists for more than 450 years. And the plastic that is recycled can only be used one more time before it breaks down too much to be safe. Aluminum on the other hand is infinitely recyclable.

Our overall goal is to create something better - move an antiquated category forward (both for our health, and for the planet). Something that first and foremost tastes absolutely delicious, but secondly is healthier and better designed for what we actually need.
