    Jonathan speaks with Eliza Becton and Sean Grundy, co-founders of Bevi. The beverage industry is one of the least sustainable industries with about ½ of the top 10 plastic polluters worldwide. They saw an opportunity to change the industry from the inside out by creating a sustainable beverage company using smart beverage dispensers in corporate offices. Their machines purify water at the point of use and then mix in a variety of other ingredients to create an array of beverages ranging from still to sparkling with flavor or supplement enhanced options. They can remotely manage quality and logistics for refills and maintenance.
