Chicago-based founder, educator, and artist Benjamin Edgar Gott has his hands in more creative ventures than we can keep track of. By now you’ve seen and probably enjoyed his eco-friendly plastic bottle substitute, Boxed Water; but Gott’s name is synonymous with so much more. We get the chance to talk to him about the success of Boxed Water, his success with collaboration, and the alternative education platform he is currently developing.
