Join the Pipe
Andrew Eversden was born in the north of the Netherlands, where he has been brought up by his English parents. After studying Media & Entertainment Management, Andrew gained experience in the Dutch on- and offline media world, working in sales and marketing at Sanoma Media and WeTransfer.
Andrew has recently set up the Dutch office for Tractor Ted, the very successful, children’s educational company from the UK, using the Netherlands as a springboard into the rest of Europe.
For Join the Pipe, Andrew is currently setting up partnerships with sports clubs, federations and gyms, with a view to making them greener, cleaner and more sustainable by using reusable (branded) bottles and drinking water stations. Every partnership contributes to a drinking water project in developing countries in Africa, and to date Join the Pipe has set up more than 250 projects. Andrew is a hard working competitive team player. At present he is in his ninth season playing field hockey in the Dutch Premier League, recognised as the toughest in the world.
Inspired by Del Boy from his favourite TV series "Only Fools and
Horses", Andrew is a real entrepreneur, relishing challenges
with as his motto: “He who dares,wins!”.
Sustainable drinking water stations and bottles at sports facilities.
Join the Pipe promotes tap water as a sustainable and healthy option to drink by making it available at sports facilities and in public places.
Many people want to fill their water bottle or have a sip of water whilst out and about. Our drinking water station is an inexpensive, healthy and environmentally friendly option of having drinking water accessible to people who are exercising. The Join the Pipe drinking water station can be placed both indoor and outdoor.
Having a drinking water station within the sports facility enables people to exercise a bit longer because they can stay hydrated. As a result people are more active over a longer period of time helping to fight obesity. With the proceeds of our drinking water stations and branded bottles we fund water projects & city clean-ups in developing countries.
