The story of Green Sheep Water began after we watched a documentary that put our ocean’s plastic problem into perspective. We recognized that although reusable bottles are the best solution for our society’s bottled water habit, the reality is that they are often forgotten at home, and even the best of us sometimes find ourselves thirsty and without one, so we end up buying water in a container that pollutes our oceans forever. It turns out that sometimes the best solutions fail because they do not take into account human habits. And so, we set out to find a better option.
After realizing that aluminum was the most efficient material out there, we became the first company to bottle water in 100% recyclable aluminum twist-off top bottles. Our canned water and aluminum bottled water give consumers on-the-go convenience in an ocean-friendly package. It is not a perfect solution, but it might be the one we need to curb our harmful plastic consumption.
Nicole grew up in Mexico City and moved to Miami in 2005. Spurred by her microfinance work in Kenya and influenced by social entrepreneurs, Nicole also knew she wanted to make a difference with her work. She loves the ocean and now gets to devote all her time to keeping it plastic-free.
Hailing from Bah-stahn* (Boston, duh), Jess is a design girl wonder (one of her many talents). Prior to Green Sheep, she worked her way through a couple years of the 9 to 5 grind, only to realize that she wanted more. She decided to leave her job in order to join Green Sheep and do what she loves.
*Just to be clear, Jess doesn't actually have a Boston accent, and she really sucks at imitating one...
