The MYWATER startup company is a member of the Technology Park Ljubljana and the Climate-KIC accelerator. We have developed a public hydration station, which is made of Slovenian wood and is intended to reduce the quantity of waste plastic bottles. The solution allows people to access water free-ofcharge; a spot where they can refill their own reusable bottle manually from the machine. The benefits of sustainable water use go beyond the mere economic and environmental effects. Many of these benefits are closely tied to people’s health and wellbeing.
