Episode 51 Transcript: Revisiting Kadeya, the Future of Reusable Water Bottles

Molly Wood Voice-Over: Welcome to Everybody in the Pool, the podcast where we dive deep into the innovative solutions and the brilliant minds who are tackling the climate crisis head-on. I'm Molly Wood.

This week … I am thrilled to report that Everybody in the Pool is officially one year old … yep … we kept the baby alive, everyone! I have had the pleasure of interviewing so many entrepreneurs and investors and inspiring practitioners who are doing the WORK to create a better world for all of us …

And in that time … the conversation has only gotten more relevant … in episode TWO, we previewed the problem of home insurance … and how it was getting harder to get insurance in high fire, high flood, and other climate risk-prone areas… turns out THAT was a big deal.

Some of the companies I’ve featured have continued to thrive … Magrathea Metals … which makes magnesium metal out of seawater … made a 28 million dollar partnership with the Department of Defense … to establish domestic manufacturing of this critical metal.

Alternative cement maker Brimstone … got a 189 million dollar grant from the Department of Energy … to build a demonstration plant to make … that carbon-neutral cement …

Climatize … the crowd-funding platform that helps raise money for renewable energy projects and gives small investors a return by helping fund those projects … was just written up in the Wall Street Journal … for a solar farm project they helped get funded … that’s providing much needed income to a farming family.

IT’S HAPPENING … so this week I also want to re-expose you … to a startup that’s really been crushing it lately … that I profiled last summer … Take a look back … at Kadeya.
