RainStick Named to TIME’s List of the Best Inventions of 2023

The first WiFi-enabled circular shower earns recognition for its originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact, offering water/energy savings with a superior experience.

VANCOUVER, ON (October 24, 2023) – Today, TIME revealed its annual list of the Best Inventions, which features 200 extraordinary innovations changing our lives. RainStick, a shower system that can be easily installed in any residential or commercial space, was one of the 200 recipients of this prestigious award.

RainStick addresses the pressing issues of water and energy conservation across North America, offering 80% water savings, 80% energy savings and 2x the standard flow rate. With the RainStick app, you can seamlessly monitor savings, and maintenance, and customize your shower experience to perfectly suit your preferences. While delivering all this, it is also a more hygienic option than traditional showers with a low maintenance, built-in self-cleaning system after every shower. All of these innovative features and sustainable design contributed to being named in TIME’s List of The Best Inventions.

“We don’t want people to think that sustainability has to be about making sacrifices. RainStick provides an elevated experience with increased water pressure that is only possible thanks to its sustainable, re-circulating design. To make a real difference, this has to be a scalable, accessible product, and that’s where we are now,” says Alisha McFetridge, CEO and co-founder of RainStick Shower. “We are so grateful for the recognition from TIME for our re-invention of the way we all shower.”

Nominations were solicited from TIME’s editors and correspondents around the world, paying special attention to growing fields—such as AI, green energy, and sustainability. Of the new list, TIME’s editors write: “The result is a list of 200 groundbreaking inventions – including the world’s most powerful supercomputer, a game-changing entertainment venue, and a new shape – that are changing how we live, work, play, and think about what’s possible.” See the full list of inventions here.
Rainstick is now available online.
