Dear NPS Northeast,

Dear NPS Northeast,

 

It is a pleasure to introduce myself.  My name is Matt Thomas.  I am the Founder and President of BeCause Water – a MA-based Benefit Corporation that creates, distributes, and promotes solutions that encourage people to drink more local water.  

As a MA-based startup, we have mainly focused in New England working with organizations such as Boston Public Schools, State Street Financial, and the Massachusetts State House.

After learning more about our work, Superintendent of National Parks of Boston, Michael Creasey and Executive Director of SOCC, Shawn Norton, suggested we connect to NPS Northeast to explore partnership opportunities with parks interested in Bottle Filling Stations.

Elkay and Halsey Taylor’s Bottle Filling Stations are popular in parks, as they meet the new demands of the eco and health conscious park goer.

Given that the National Parks Service is a world leader in environmental stewardship and sustainability, we believe that a partnership would result in greater access to tap water, less plastic bottle waste, and a statement to communities about the true value of water.

Below my signature, I have included further details about the benefits of our solutions.  If you would like to learn more about working with our team, please contact me directly at (617) 419-0314 or matt@becausewater.com.

Looking forward to connecting.

Hydrated regards,
