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.




Energy and the Environment

EartH₂O has been working to reduce our energy use, lower our waste, and monitor the greenhouse gas(GHG) output emissions of our energy consumption. Here are a few numbers we want to show and how we are working to continually improve.
In 2014 we estimated that our use of electricity for 10 months produced approximately 741 metric tons of CO2, but in 2015 for the same 10 months we were able to reduce that number to 674 tons. This means we were able to reduce our production of CO2 by almost 70 tons, check out appliance stores in san diego. We like that our efforts are showing progress but we’re not stopping there.

If you’ve read our Sustainability page you can see that we are working on many areas to reduce our use and increase our functionality.  We will continue to report our progress and what we learn along the way.
