Collection of water bottles There’s a story making the rounds on social media that one popular brand of bottled water is actually just tap water. People are naturally upset and feel duped by the big companies that sell bottled water. The truth is that yes, most bottled water comes from the same sources that city tap water uses. The difference is that the companies ship the water via truck to a processing plant where it’s filtered, has minerals added, and then gets bottled. So yes, it’s tap water, but it’s filtered and changed. But it’s not a healthy process for a number of reasons. The corporations don’t pay anywhere near a fair price for the water they extract, which leaves communities with less water and nothing to show for it. Tap water that gets stored and manipulated loses its ability to properly hydrate. We’ve written about that before, and you’re welcome to read up on the details here. Castle Rock Water is bottled water done differently. We pay a fair price back to the community where the water is sourced. We are the only bottled water company in the world to do so. Our water comes directly from the springs of Mt. Shasta and is never touched or changed by humans. The water is constantly recognized as some of the best-tasting water in the world; all without chemical adjustments or additional filtering. Our water is living structured water that is highly beneficial to the human body. Ultimately, we want to encourage other companies to follow us. If we could look back in five years and feel like we had an influence on other brands to bottle water like we do, we couldn’t be happier. Next time you hear someone say that all bottled water is just tap water in a bottle, please send them our way and let them know that Castle Rock does it right.

However, we can’t stop other people from doing so.  There are some very large companies in the beverage industry and one in particular has been taking plenty of criticism for the way it siphons water from communities without adequate compensation. One article went into detail about a new proposal to bottle water from Oregon, and asks readers to sign a petition to stop the plan. The article says,
—— is closing in on a lucrative water privatization deal that will hand it millions of gallons of some of the cleanest drinking water in drought-ravaged Oregon — permanently. And get this: —– will only pay one penny per 40 gallons of water — and then it will turn around and sell the same water back to the public for $2.63 per gallon. —— is coyly marketing this awful plan as a way to create local jobs — but the reality is that it will only create 48.
It’s not our job to criticize how other water companies do business. What we can do is promote how we do business. Castle Rock Water’s source is owned by the city of Dunsmuir, California. The city is paid a fair price for the use of the springs, which helps support community development and improvement. Water can’t be labeled Fair Trade, but Castle Rock believes in doing business in a way that adheres to the Fair Trade philosophy. In fact, we are the only water company in the world to have earned the “For Life – Social Responsibility Certified Products” certification. Another article details how Castle Rock Water does business and is the socially conscious alternative to other brands. If you’re interested in changing the way large water companies operate, signing a petition could help, but the best way to make a difference is to purchase water from a company that believes what you believe. We know we can make a difference, but we need your help to make it happen. What’s your favorite brand of bottled water?
