Episode 19: Yvanna Lacémon, Oaï Water Bottles (LIVE from France)

Yvanna Lacémon was traveling the world when she realized that she wanted to start her own project to help the environment. We lived together at a surf camp in Ecuador and after seeing my own reusable water bottle, Yvanna decided this was an easy way to get people in her native France to change their habits. With that, Yvanna founded Oaï (pronounced why), a company that produces and sells insulated stainless steel bottles in France and neighboring countries in Europe. Having worked in the music industry for years, Yvanna focused on aligning with artists like Patrice and selling her bottles to companies like LiveNation, who can help influence and change an industry laden in plastic usage. This episode was recorded live in Paris, France just outside Garé Montparnasse the weekend of the Good Planet Foundation Festival of Change.
