We are proud to be a part of the X Prize for Water Abundance and very excited about the international team we have assembled to tackle this most important issue.
We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with Sustainable Surf on their latest initiative, DIYH20, which is aimed at showing people how anyone can become water self-reliant by producing their own supply of water with atmospheric water collection. As a start, we will be installing a Skywater Atmospheric Water Generator at The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano.
Join us Friday, April 7th at the Ecology Center to get a sip of fresh water made from air, and enjoy the launch of DIYH20 and view a screening of Cyrus Sutton's new film 'Island Earth'
A recent article by National Geographic illustrates the massive difference in water consumption in different parts of the world. It is especially important that we are conscious of how much water we use, because clean fresh water is a critical resource even if it is easily available for us.
"From India to Bolivia, it was always the women who knew exactly how much water their family needed.
When photographer Ashley Gilbertson sat down in households across six countries to document water access for UNICEF, he’d ask them to tally their daily usage. Then he’d display the total amount used in plastic containers filled from the local source."

We are thrilled to share with you the inspiring TED talk by Deepika Kurup.
Deepika has been determined to solve the global water crisis since she was 14 years old, after she saw kids outside her grandparents' house in India drinking water that looked too dirty even to touch. Her research began in her family kitchen — and eventually led to a major science prize. Hear how this teenage scientist developed a cost-effective, eco-friendly way to purify water.
We know that the production of meat causes complex environmental issues. So reach for those veggies! But did you know that fruits and vegetables, even from organic farms, most likely use blood, bone, and manure from animals that are raised unethically? It’s time to look deeper into the ‘skin of the earth’, the soil, and how we are as dumb as dirt to overlook its importance to environmental concerns and perhaps realize…dirt isn’t so dumb after all.
The event Soil Totally Rocks! brought together businesses, non-profits and trailblazers in the field under the umbrella of the Sustainable Business Council of Los Angeles to socialize and give talks on eco-accomplishments as varied as urban farming, composting, and creating water from the air. Like any serious solution, it required an entire committed community coming together to share ideas, resources, as well as good times.
Community participation is key to change, and David Hertz, founder of the Studio of Environmental Architecture and SkySource, which uses a revolutionary system that draws drinking water from the air, gives away the water in Venice to promote awareness and to benefit Venice residents and visitors. As an added layer of outreach the organization employs homeless kids to catch the water from the air.
At the recent clean technology conference "Sustainability Launch" hosted by Plug and Play, a venture capital and startup incubator in Silicon Valley, Island Sky (the makers of our Skywater machines) presented the Skywater machines and how they can be used to make communities, families, and industries water self reliant.
