Everything began with an eye-opening look at how toxins and chemicals can drastically impact our bodies, our environment and our lives.

I had just turned 22 when my mom, Ellen (affectionately called Elly by my Dad), passed away after a courageous battle with liver cancer. It was June 2012 and I had spent a year learning about and witnessing firsthand the impact of toxins and chemicals in both the body and the environment.

Welly was created to tackle this problem head-on.

I was inspired not only by Mom’s tenacity while facing death, but also by her remarkable life. Through her passionate commitment to philanthropy, cultivating young artists and entrepreneurs, and her love of life she uplifted her community in ways that continue to inspire me and so many others. Welly was born out of the amazing imprint she left on me.



The Welly Company is a value system more than it is a business - one that embodies quality, resourcefulness, wellness and social responsibility, just as my Mom did. I decided to address health where it begins: with the water that sustains our lives. Enter Welly.


Welly bottles are made with natural, renewable resources. We support charity: water, an organization that is saving lives through clean water and sanitation projects in developing countries. All in all, Welly is about being a source of wellness for people all over the world. The name “Welly” also recalls my dear Mom, Elly, who would join me in this cause if she still could.

Welly is for her and Welly is for all.

With sincerity and determination,


Ben Kander
Founder & CEO
