Sea Change Radio

In the 1990s, I recall my grand­fa­ther remark­ing upon the new ubiq­ui­ty of plas­tic water bot­tles, When did every­body get so thirsty all of a sud­den?” Indeed, plas­tic bot­tles have been pro­lif­er­at­ing at an expo­nen­tial rate since the 1970s – the US alone is respon­si­ble for tens of bil­lions of sin­gle-use plas­tic bot­tle waste every year. This week on Sea Change Radio, we take a look at the bot­tled water indus­try through the eyes of a rel­a­tive­ly small but inno­v­a­tive play­er in the space. CEO and co-founder of FloWa­ter, Rich Raz” Raz­gaitis, joins us to tell us about his company’s prod­uct, its mis­sion to help curb America’s seem­ing­ly bot­tom­less thirst for sin­gle-use plas­tic bot­tles, and the ways the bot­tled water indus­try is sim­i­lar to Big Tobacco.
