Biography

Antonio Espinosa is an architect who discovered the inequalities of our world through different experiences as a volunteer in cooperation projects.

While he was working with a Spanish NGO on building a hospital in the Afar Region of Ethiopia, Antonio got in contact with communities that did not have access to clean water and he could see how this affected their daily lives in dramatic ways. Following that experience, he decided to work on improving water access in the poorest communities. He thus founded AUARA, the first Spanish water bran that invests 100% of profits in water access projects, and the first water brand in Europe to produce its bottles with 100% recycled plastic.
