We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Sheen & Erica Ptak and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ashley Sheen & Erica Ptak, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
Inspired by a deeply rooted love of the desert and a passion for water conservation, Desert Dweller Co. was founded as a tribute to our native state and is fueled by the desire to preserve our landscape and vital natural resources for years to come. As Arizona natives – born and raised in Flagstaff and Phoenix – who value sustainability and conscious living, we share a deep passion for the environmental diversity of our state. We love our home and want our families, friends, and businesses to thrive in the Southwest for years to come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As Desert Dwellers, water is one of our most precious resources. By directly supporting the installation of SOURCE sustainable hydropanels in water-stressed communities, we hope to make a significant impact on the future of water in Arizona and beyond.
