About Us

Every time your refill, Cupanion gives clean water to a person in need. Fill it Forward.

At Cupanion we believe in a healthy planet and clean water for all. We’ve created a product that makes giving water as easy as drinking water. Our hope is that every time you refill a Cupanion product, you appreciate the value of clean water and celebrate the positive impact you’re making by choosing to reuse. The power to make a difference is in your hands.

We work with many of top universities and schools to help them fulfill their pledge to make sustainability a part of their campuses. We also work with some of the most innovative companies and events to build meaningful and engaging programs that focus on sustainability and charitable giving.
