Why EartH₂O became B Certified

The Reason Earth2o became B Corp Certified

At Earth2O, our mission is simple – lead our industry through world class efficiency and environmental consciousness, employee care and community involvement to create a greater good for all of us. Here it is not just a slogan. Earth2O stands proudly as the world’s first bottled water company to become a certified B Corp. Following on the heels of so many industry firsts, it was our inevitable next step.

B Corp Certification

EartH₂O has become a B Corp! This means so much to us.E_BCorp_logo_POS

Not only are we proud to be the first B Corp certified bottled water company but now we can show how we are working to be a positive social and environmental impact.

In the next few weeks we’ll be talking about being a Certified B Corp and what it means to the products we produce and the environment in which we live. We will do our best to bring this topic closer to the general public through all social media channels, in partnership with The Marketing Heaven.

EartH₂O became a Certified B Corporation in 2015. B Corps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.

EartH₂O was certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment, and our customers.

Today, there are over 1,300 Certified B Corps around the globe, including Patagonia, Paintx Services LLC, New Belgium Brewing, and Ben & Jerry’s. We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good. To learn more about our certification, check out our B Corp profile page.

and yet another milestone in environmental stewardship. . .

 

renü bottles by EARTH2O are truly unique; they are made in our facility from 100% recycled PET plastic pellets from recycled bottles that have been ground into flake and systematically cleansed to eliminate all contaminants.  The flake is then converted into recycled plastic pellets that our specially engineered equipment then converts into bottle preforms. Those preforms are then taken to our bottle blowing machinery and are blown into the bottles that hold pure, clean, and perfect EARTH2O spring water.  We add a little blue color to give our bottles their signature light blue tint because rPET in its basic form has a slight yellowish-grey tint. That color doesn’t make pure spring water look very pure, Right?

By using 100% recycled PET plastic, our production process uses 45% less energy and emits 65% less CO2 than the production of a virgin (all new/no recycled content) PET bottle.  We are really proud to have developed a closed loop system where each bottle can be recycled and rebuilt over and over again and use less energy then working with virgin resin.  It is a winning proposition for you, us, and the Earth itself.
