Okay. So Plastic Sucks...
But Why is Open Water the Best Alternative?

ALUMINUM IS BEST

Aluminum is recycled 2x more often than plastic, glass, and cartons
Open Water uses the most recycled packaging in the world.

Empty aluminum beverage containers are recycled more than twice as often as their plastic, glass, and carton counterparts.

By the way, aluminum's industry-wide recycling rate is nearly 70% (that covers beverage packaging plus other industries like cars and building materials).

Open Water is made from 73% recycled material
Open Water is made of recycled material.

Open Water uses an average of 73% post-consumer aluminum in every bottle and can. Other packaging materials (including some aluminum options) don't fare so well on this front.

Open Water is infinitely recyclable
Open Water is infinitely recyclable.

Aluminum recycling is a true closed loop. That means that the material from one bottle can go right back into making another identical bottle, which doesn't happen with plastic and cartons.

Open Water is certified Climate Neutral
Open Water is carbon neutral.

Open Water became the 1st certified Climate Neutral bottled water brand in the world. We offset all of the emissions created not only by our packaging, but by our company operations as a whole.
