Pioneering efforts as one of only a handful of countries to have banned single-use plastics, the Hospital eagerly joined the ranks of communities worldwide taking their drinking water off-grid with the renewable water technology.

“We’re excited about the impact of this hospital project, our first in partnership with the Accelerator,” says Zero Mass Water Founder and CEO Cody Friesen.

With the island’s water infrastructure often deemed too old and ineffective -Jamaicans often turn to bottled water as their primary supply, contributing to the nation’s plastic waste troubles.

“A first step in building resilience is having access to clean drinking water after a disaster. The elegance in this solution is that it provides that facility while also displacing plastic water bottles that are contributors to our climate challenge. Zero Mass Water’s delivery of an innovative solution to our most vulnerable is an example to others, it embodies the kind of partnerships most desired by the Accelerator,” said Sir Richard Branson.

Zero Mass Water’s SOURCE Hydropanels are available for purchase and have been installed for homes and communities across the Caribbean.

Zero Mass Water’s mission is to make drinking water an unlimited resource.

Zero Mass Water puts the power of safe, high-quality water production into the hands of every person in nearly every climate and corner of the world.
