Earth911 Podcast Innovator Interview

Bevi, an office water dispenser company, has saved more than 180 million plastic bottles from landfills. Earth911 talks with Sean Grundy, cofounder and CEO of Bevi, about the company’s mission to deliver sustainable and healthy water, with or without flavoring. They developed a networked water dispenser that can be installed in an office to distill and carbonate tap water, adding natural flavors for about one-third the cost of a can or bottle or soda.

A Bevi water dispenser lets you choose plain or carbonated water, your flavor, and intensity.

Grundy explains how Bevi has measured many aspects of its supply chain to understand its CO2 emissions. Its water flavorings bags and boxes, equipment, and delivery services through local partners are optimized to reduce emissions. He also explains the motivations business must embrace to win and keep dedicated employees who care about the environment. Bevi’s commitment to sustainability grew out of the founding team’s values, but he says they find their customers purchase its water services also embrace a concern to the environment.
