Still Water

Standard price $90.00
Antipodes water is sourced from an aquifer 327 metres below the ground in the Bay of Plenty, on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Antipodes joined the United Nations Environment Programme's Climate Neutral Network and became the world's first premium bottled water company to be certified carbon neutral. As well as joining the UN’s Climate Neutral Network, the company has integrated several environmental measures into its business, particularly related to its plant, which it built in 2007. It has developed a wetland and kahikatea forest on the land surrounding the bottling facility, and has cut its energy use by installing solar panels that heat water for its laboratory and testing facilities. It re-uses wastewater and rinsewater from the bottling is diverted to the wetland. The company uses fuel-efficient vehicles and video conferencing to reduce its carbon footprint, and the bottles are made from 50 per cent recycled glass.
