Purpose Driven Bluewater – good for you and good for the planet
At Bluewater, we care about what goes into the planet’s landfills, oceans, rivers and lakes because we care about what goes into our bodies when drinking or cooking and washing with water. Founded in 2013 by Swedish environmental entrepreneur Bengt Rittri, we’ve put banishing single-use plastics at the heart of Bluewater’s business vision with ingenious planet-friendly water purification, dispensing, and bottle solutions to generate and serve pure water and other beverages at home, work, and when on the go at busy events, venues, and public locations.
Bluewater water purifiers remove over 99% of all known contaminants from lead to gender-bending chemicals such as PFAS as well as microplastics and are available in all major markets globally. In early 2022, Bluewater merged with US water company FloWater, which shares Bluewater’s purpose-driven mission to eliminate the need for single-use plastic water bottles and their polluting transportation. Both Bluewater and FloWater have been honored with Fast Company “World Changing Ideas” awards, and been featured by numerous leading media, including CNN, Forbes, Inc., The Hollywood Reporter, The Financial Times, and The Daily Telegraph.Learn More
