Kelowna’s RainStick Shower has been awarded the “Best of CES 2022 Innovations Award Honouree” for their circular shower technology.
The announcement was made ahead of CES 2022, the world’s most influential technology event, happening January 5-8 in Las Vegas.
The CES Innovation Awards program, organised by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), is an annual competition honouring outstanding design and engineering in several consumer technology product categories.
RainStick Shower is North America’s first WiFi-enabled circular shower that saves 80% water and up to 80% energy while providing almost double the flow of a traditional low flow shower.
Using proprietary water recirculation technology, RainStick Shower recovers the water and energy typically wasted to create a luxurious, environmentally conscious shower experience. Users can download the RainStick App to see environmental insights in real-time and track their own water and energy savings.
Alisha McFetridge, CEO & co-founder of RainStick Shower adds “We are incredibly honoured and proud to have received this acknowledgement from CES of the work we’re doing. We are on a mission to provide sustainability without compromise and our planet needs this technology more than ever. We look forward to working together with like-minded partners to bring RainStick to market in 2022”.
The cleantech startup raised a $1 million seed round in August 2021 supported by Vancouver’s Red Thread Ventures and a group of impact angel investors aligned with the water and renewables space. This group included John Rose, who previously served as CEO and president of electric floor heating company NuHeat Floors.
