Drinking water

7 ways to Green Your Drinking water

It may be the most abundant resource on the planet, but H2O isn’t limitless or impervious to pollutants. Take the following steps to ensure your drinking water stays pure and plentiful.

  1. Drink tap versus bottled water

Plant-Based Water Bottles with a Premium Spring Water

We’d like to introduce you to the future of bottled water – 100% pure spring water in a bottle made from 100% renewable resources.

‘Going green’ is not a novelty. It is an important shift in the way people live their lives and the way companies do business. In the past, making a sustainable choice when it comes to bottled water has been challenging. Most current brands offer variations of a petroleum-based plastic bottle, 4 out of 5 of which are left to pollute the planet.

re:newal premium spring water is packaged in a plant-based (PLA) water bottle made from corn derivatives, allowing it to decompose naturally or be sent for recycling.
The label is also made from eco-friendly PLA.

We believe this is the gold standard in eco water with our private natural spring showing one of the lowest impurity readings on the standard index. This compares extremely favorably with other companies who have yet to achieve the purity level of our water, or who do not use spring water at all.

We would appreciate the opportunity to provide re:newal as an option to your clients. Many organizations and consumers are looking to make a shift away from plastic bottles in favor of a ‘green’ alternative at a competitive price.
We believe re:newal premium spring water is that product that allows this to happen.

For more information, please visit our website at www.renewal-water.com or call
(239) 287-5792.

We look forward to speaking with you further.

Sincerely,

Sam Blythe
