6 months ago, three strangers met at Exmouth Creative Jam and formed the concept for a sustainable water bottle that would be accessible to people of all abilities and supporting the most vulnerable in our local community to be confident in their independence.

Hydroeco was formed, and since then we have been meeting every week with senior youth worker Richard Doak guiding us along the process of designing and further developing our product through market research and exploring various forms of design using 3D scanning, modeling, and printing, as well as learning how to use a vinyl cutter and its software to create our logo.

The lockdown hasn’t stopped us from working as we have taken some of our equipment home and continue to meet up through video conferences and brainstorm.
