The bottled water controversy is gaining worldwide attention. An article in the Shanghai Daily did a great job of covering the problems facing the industry and the damage it can do to the environment.
The article says,
Much of today’s bottled water, however, is not glacier or natural spring water but processed water, which is municipal water or, more often, directly extracted groundwater that has been subjected to reverse osmosis or other purification treatments. Not surprisingly, bottlers have been embroiled in disputes with local authorities and citizens’ groups in many places over their role in water depletion, and even pollution.
This is where Castle Rock Water is different. Castle Rock is glacier-fed natural spring water that is never processed. The water source is sustainable and the glaciers, high atop Mt. Shasta, are growing. Plus, Castle Rock Water uses glass bottles so it doesn’t contribute to the billions of plastic bottles choking our oceans and environment.
On top of all of that, Castle Rock proudly has the IMO “For Life- Social Responsibility” certification, which means we treat our employees and the environment right while paying a fair price to the community that owns the springs.
Think about this:
Castle Rock Water is the only bottled water company in the world that is fairly dealing with our natural resources. If every company that takes natural resources from the earth would pay fairly for them, our government could be paid for and we could have a tax-free country.
Castle Rock Water is making a stand to show it’s possible and, as small as we are, we have already paid close to $500,000. The big four bottled water companies in the United States currently pay nothing. If they paid the same as we do, each would give 500 million dollars, for each bottling plant, to the local governments and bring taxes down substantially.
Castle Rock Water is bottled water done right and we hope more companies follow our lead. It’s the right thing to do.
Which brand of bottled water do you drink?
