In 2013, Bevi began when three friends, Sean Grundy, Eliza Becton, and Frank Lee, wondered why people prefer to buy bottled water over drinking tap water, and often trashing bottles after a single use. That question evolved into an idea of using design and technology to promote behavioral change. Several embarrassingly terrible prototypes later (seriously, folks, we’re talking cardboard box market tests and gigantic vending machines – for giants), the Bevi machine was born.
Today, Bevi’s mission is to turn back the hands of time (sort of) and eliminate waste from the production, shipping, and disposing of bottled beverages. It’s a vision of a future where a smarter platform (powered by the municipal water supply) transforms how beverages are delivered. It is an ambitious goal, but Bevi is on it!
