Bevi saves 7 million plastic bottles from landfill
Boston, MA – Bevi, a Boston technology company that inspires behavioral change through design and technology, announces a milestone of 7 million bottles saved from the landfill. Bevi’s smart office water cooler customizes still and sparkling water with healthy flavors, without the need for single-use disposable bottles or cans. The Bevi machines are powered by filtered tap water, and can be found in offices across the US, including Netflix, Lyft, GE, Intel, and MIT.
Earlier this year, Bevi conducted a research survey with YouGov PLC, where 25% of millennial employees reported that having a sustainability initiative at their workplace is important. Furthermore, one in four would even work longer hours at a company with sustainability initiatives than for a non-sustainable company.
Sean Grundy, Bevi CEO says of the survey and milestone: “We started this company to make it easy to get through the day without drinking from a disposable plastic bottle. It’s been amazing to see that dream become a reality, and to witness the environmental impact everyday. Some of our customers used to burn through thousands of plastic water bottles (and budget) per week. Instead, they have replaced refrigerators stocked full of bottles or cans with Bevi units. We provide an easy solution for employers to implement a sustainability program, while winning the war for talent.”
