Since starting Nebia, our vision has been to provide the biggest impact by building products that people love to use. The first step was moving to San Francisco to partner with some of the best designers, engineers, and forward-thinking investors. This was four and a half years ago. Our initial goal was to build the world’s most efficient shower. The caveat? We wanted people to not only save water, but also have a better shower experience.
Fast forward to 2019. We have shipped 16,000 Nebia Spa Shower 1.0s to 55 different countries. Our community has saved over 100 million gallons of water and people love showering with their Nebias. We have developed the breakthrough H₂Micro™ technology and have been granted five patents. Most importantly, thousands of people have joined us in contributing to a more sustainable, and more thoughtful future.
Now, we are incredibly excited to announce that we have taken the next step towards our vision by partnering with Moen. Moen is a leader in the water delivery industry, and they are one of the biggest faucet and showerhead companies in the world. They have been in business for over 75 years and are a true testament to high-quality American engineering and manufacturing. The founder, Al Moen, invented the first single-handle hot and cold mixing valve, which was a revolutionary breakthrough in plumbing. At the time, it was listed as one of The 100 Best Designed Products by Fortune Magazine. The principal goal of this partnership is to accelerate our combined impact and continue making products that redefine the industry.
This partnership has been one year in the making and we are incredibly excited to announce the Nebia Spa Shower 2.0 — In Collaboration With Moen.
Nebia 2.0 has:
More Heat — Nebia 2.0 is 29% warmer than Nebia 1.0.
Better Coverage — Nebia has 2X the water coverage compared to standard showerheads.
Better Rinseability — Nebia’s droplets are 3X faster than standard showerheads.
Nebia 2.0 is also revamped for a much wider array of shower setups. It is now compatible with 95% of home water pressure levels (up from 65% of homes with Nebia 1.0). Finally, Nebia 2.0 comes in more colors to suit your style: Matte Silver and Matte Black.
Through this partnership, our joint goal is to save 1 billion gallons of water by the year 2021.
This partnership will have three main components. Distribution — both companies will distribute each other’s products through their respective channels. Product Development — Nebia and Moen will work together to continue building products that push the envelope in terms of innovation, sustainability, and impact. Financial — Moen is making a financial investment in Nebia by leading our Series A round.
The world is going to grow from its current population of 7.5 billion people to 10 billion people by the year 2050. Increased demand and diminishing supply will make access to clean water one of the most pressing issues we face as a global society over the next few decades. We need more investment, more innovation, and overall better solutions to address the growing water crisis that faces us. Our partnership with Moen is a small, but important, step in our pursuit to help address these challenges.
