Refresh has rebranded to Bevi.
We just wanted to give a quick shoutout and congratulations to Eliza Becton of Refresh, our Amber Grant winner from last June.
The not-yet-30-year-old Eliza, her team, and their more eco-friendly Refresh water vending machine project were featured in this Fast Co. article, A Water Vending Machine That Minimizes Bottling’s Nasty Side – which is sure to give them a big boost in awareness.
The Refresh uses a collapsible container that allows vending operators to stock five times more bottles in a machine, and that fills up bottles on-site, filtering water from the tap.
Can we go ahead and say that we bought into them before they took off? Because we totally did.
We’re really excited to have been a part of this project, even in a small way.
