It all started at a Mediterranean Beach which inspired a Startup to Tackle Plastic Pollution. The future is climate tech and we were out to go make an impact. We knew water needed to be disrupted.
One of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean for sailing is the Kornati archipelago. As the warm breeze carried a sailing boat between picturesque Kornati islands beach, we stop and I jumped over the side, swimming too near beach. In just 50 meters I saw 3 bottles and in the right corner of the beach a water canister and a huge pile of half-decomposed bottles and bottle tops. We were in the national park, far from the mainland – it didn’t make any sense. It was a defining moment that sparked my journey towards creating MYWATER Technologies, a groundbreaking solution aiming to revolutionize water management and combat the global plastic crisis.
The vision behind MYWATER Technologies stems from the profound understanding that water, the essence of life, should be used and treated with utmost respect and care. We have to change the way we stay hydrated, by stopping using single-use water bottles. Plastic pollution has become a pervasive threat, infiltrating our oceans, contaminating marine life, and disrupting fragile ecosystems. Determined to make a difference, I find co-founders and set out on a mission to create a sustainable, eco-conscious alternative that would address this pressing environmental issue head-on.
MYWATER's primary objective is to provide communities, businesses, and individuals with a comprehensive Water-as-a-Service (WaaS) model that promotes sustainability, locally sourced water, reduces plastic waste, and minimizes carbon footprint. At its core, MYWATER Technologies aims to reinvent the way we perceive and interact with water, placing environmental stewardship at the forefront of its operations.

By leveraging cutting-edge nanofiltration technology at Point of Entry (POE) and Point of Use (POU), MYWATER Technologies offer an innovative solution that guarantees safe, clean, and sustainable water for all. The advanced filtration systems remove harmful contaminants, microplastics, and pollutants, ensuring that every drop meets the highest quality standards. This not only safeguards human health but also protects fragile ecosystems from the devastating consequences of plastic pollution.
"We believe that water is a shared responsibility, and it's crucial to take bold steps towards a sustainable future," emphasized Robert Slavec, the visionary behind MYWATER Technologies "Our aim is not only to provide superior water treatment but also to disrupt the prevailing throw-away culture. We want to redefine the relationship between people and water, fostering a deep sense of appreciation and responsibility for this invaluable resource."
With a commitment to reducing plastic waste, MYWATER Technologies employs a refillable system, eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles. By partnering with local communities, businesses, and environmentally conscious individuals, MYWATER establishes a network of refill stations conveniently located throughout cities, events, and public spaces. This infrastructure enables users to access clean water on the go while significantly reducing plastic consumption and the carbon footprint associated with traditional bottled water.
As the world grapples with the escalating environmental crisis, MYWATER's emergence couldn't be timelier. The startup's vision aligns seamlessly with global sustainability goals, such as the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), Goal 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), and Goal 14 (Life Below Water). By providing a scalable and efficient WaaS solution, MYWATER Technologies strives to make a tangible impact on the preservation of our precious water resources and the health of our planet.
The story of MYWATER Technologies is one of transformation, driven by a profound sense of responsibility and a commitment to combatting plastic pollution. As it continues to gain recognition as a pioneering force in sustainable water management, MYWATER promises to reshape the way we approach water consumption, forging a brighter and cleaner future for generations to come.
