Reconnecting your community to the value of water.

Problem Identification

The United States has lost sight of the importance of water sustainability leading to water scarcity, water pollution, and an estimated $1 Trillion needed to improve our aging water infrastructure.  We believe a major factor of these problems are derived from people’s lack of understanding and appreciation for their public water system.

Theory of Change

In order to initiate the revaluation of local water, people need to connect to the information and products that support their public drinking water system.  If we increase awareness and access to local drinking water, we trust that communities will identify their unique needs and take the necessary steps to assure a more sustainable local water system.

Founder & President of BeCause Water Benefit Corp

In my quest to find a fulfilling career path, I was fortunate enough to have been connected to the power of water.  I discovered the fact that 1 in 9 people in the world lack access to clean water and wanted to be part of the solution.  My original idea was to start a bottled water company that would send a portion of proceeds to developing countries with inadequate access to clean drinking water.  However, I quickly became aware that the bottled water industry was contributing to environmental degradation of our planet, wasting precious resources, and that their product was generally less regulated than what comes out of our tap.  My realization that my perception of clean, sustainable water was far skewed from the truth, brought me to the conclusion that there was a significant public void in knowledge and appreciation for water sustainability.  My mission was and still is to develop a community-based enterprise that helps cities, schools, and corporations reconnect to the value of water.

Our mission is to reconnect communities to local drinking water.
