News from the Water Lovers. Water-Saving Products by Hydrophil.
The three founders of Hydrophil — Christoph Laudon, Wanja Johannes Weskott and Sebastian Bensmann — call themselves “water lovers”, and that’s what they have called their company too, since the name comes from the Ancient Greek, “hýdor” meaning water and “phílos”, loving. Their common interests and a blog post by Sebastian on "Water consumption in textile production" gave rise to the idea in 2013 to bring their own products to the market – fair-trade and vegan products that are also manufactured in a water-friendly way. Water-friendly products are those whose components of natural origin have been cultivated without artificial irrigation, and which, when composted, leave no harmful residues in the groundwater. Hydrophil’s first product a — T-shirt — proved enormously popular, and prompted the founders to expand the range. The company now specialises in the manufacture of hygiene and personal care products – because, what better place to save water than in the bathroom?
