Other Sustainability Notes

At Open Water, our goal has always been to provide the most sustainable bottled water option on the planet. Although no bottled water company will ever be as sustainable as simply drinking tap water, the reality is that millions of people still purchase water on-the-go, and millions of plastic bottles end up in oceans every day. At Open Water, we believe that a more pragmatic solution is needed to really curb plastic waste and that incremental improvements can have a huge impact in the aggregate. This is why we we the first water company to use aluminum bottles and cans, which are the most recycled beverage packaging in the world. While it is abundantly clear that our products offer the best end-of-life prospects out of any other option out there (including rPET and cartons), we wanted to do more. We believe that focusing on end-of-life impact is extremely important after all, there's no way to undo the damage that a plastic bottle creates if it reaches the ocean but we recognize that the manufacturing and transportation of our products has a big impact too. We realized that, if we wanted to offer a truly sustainable product, we had to address these emissions too. Becoming Climate Neutral allows us to offer a solution that is better not just after you are done using it, but every step of the way.
