Choose Water was established as an ethical and social enterprise to provide bottled Scottish drinking water around the country. From the beginning we have been striving for positive change, working closely with our charity partner Water For Africa. Together we are striving to provide infrastructure across West Africa, so the simple act of picking up one of our bottles turns an everyday choice into a life-changing decision.
With over 9 million tonnes of plastic being dumped into the ocean each year, plastic pollution is severely damaging our environment, with the most persistent types taking 450 years or more to degrade. We did not want to contribute to this growing crisis. We are committed to showing the industry that it is possible to use bottled water as a force for good rather than destroying the planet and her resources.
Through forming a partnership with Sky Ocean ventures, we have developed from concept to near shelf-ready. Our plastic free biodegradeable bottle does not require fossil fuel derived ingredients like that of traditional PET. It is carbon neutral, as the bottle is made with completely non-toxic materials. Every material is naturally occurring and sustainable, from the paper bottle, plant based liner, down to the ink we use for printing.
Our mission is to prove there is a commercially viable alternative to plastic.
