Native Water is bottled in ENSO Bottles, a biodegradable PET plastic bottle. The bottles are produced with Ecopure™, an additive added to the plastic manufacturing process that allows the bottles to be metabolized and neutralized on a microbial level, breaking down the plastic. ENSO bottles maintain the same physical properties and strengths as existing PET plastic bottles yet provide a more shelf stable solution than starch-based PLA materials and oxo-degradable plastics. The bottles are biodegradable in both landfill and compost environments and can also be successfully mixed with standard PET plastic recycling.
Native Water is sourced from Chester Hill Springs, located in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts. The water flows naturally through sand, clay and rocks, and provides Native Waters with a spring water which is exceedingly low in mineral and dissolved solid content. By sourcing the water locally, Native Water can minimize its carbon footprint by eliminating long trucking routes for distribution.
“Our goal is to provide the healthiest and highest quality natural spring water with a minimal carbon footprint,” said Rodger Cohen, vice president and co-founder of Native Waters. “By combining our locally sourced water with the ENSO earth-friendly, biodegradable bottles, we hope to take a step forward in the battle to stop plastic containers from filling our waterways, streets, and landfills.”
