ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
On the labelEarth friendly packaging. The only thing more refreshing than our natural spring water is how we package it. This container is 74% paper. So unlike plastic bottles, it is primarily derived from a renewable and sustainable resource. And for every tree used for our packaging, multiple trees are planted in its place. What a refreshing idea. Please recycle. One cent of each carton to The Climate Project. Distributed by CRB Group, LLC, 4915 West 157 Place, Overland Park, KS 66224. 888-708-6668.
