The original idea of these water drinking stations emerged in 2016 after the Founder, Rachel Labbe Bellas, stepped off a 21-day sailing expedition with eXXpedition Amazon and returned to her workplace at UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
As a marine scientist, she too dedicated her entire career to protecting the oceans and the environment.
However, she realized how much single-use plastic was being used and disposed of even in such an ocean-loving workplace. She needed to develop a way for people to easily access clean drinking water while they are on the go.
