The idea of Five-Eau was rooted in our love of the water and travel. Growing up on the great lakes, working on the shores of Lake Eerie, and living on the West Coast, our founder Lucy Rizzetto was inspired to create Five-Eau. Our concept behind Five-Eau was to create a representative for those who appreciate water, adventure and travel. This can range from those who enjoy water sports and recreation, to those that simply enjoy spending time at the cottage or going for a hike. Representing the vast numbers of Canadian lakes, with a home base on the Great Lakes, Five-Eau’s core belief is that water is elemental to our being. From meeting our basic needs for survival, to treasured memories and travel adventures, ourworld and its people are connected by water.
We believe in connections. Our connections with the water, connections with our environment and most importantly, connections with others. We believe there is space for everyone who wants to take a risk, chase a dream and explore what's possible and are committed to using the continuing support we've received to give others a hand up. We continue to curate a space for our five-eau collective artists, and support our community and youth the 'Village' and 'Station 14' rojects. 100% of proceeds from these projects go to organizations like Children's Treatment Center Foundation and the Erieau Community Association to support the Accessible Beach Playground, and Chatham-Kent Station 14 Fire Dept to support their community initiatives. It takes a Village.
