Description

Founded by Jaden Smith in 2015 in response to spotting plastic bottles and pollution, JUST Water is disrupting the water category through the lens of sustainability from the way it sources 100% spring water from Glens Fall, NY to the bottle its sold in. Each JUST water bottle is made up of 82% renewable resources designed to leave behind a much smaller carbon footprint than bottles made entirely of plastic. The blue bottles, which elicit an undeniable cool factor, are made of paper from certified forests and even the plastic cap is made from Brazilian sugarcane which makes the entire product 100% recyclable.
