About us

We see an exciting future, where business can operate harmoniously with nature.
Anything produced can be reused or reutilised an infinite number of times. If anything is lost it can become a part of a natural ecosystem. Here, it will provide a basis for regeneration. In this future, we move beyond something being ‘sustainable’ to being ‘regenerative.’

Where anything we produce benefits ecological growth and re-establishment and we help remedy the damages of past industrial practices. This can only be achieved if we take full responsibility for what businesses produce throughout its entire lifecycle.

The Better Bottle is our first step towards this future and our first commitment to a circular economy. It is better for us and the planet.

  
We knew that to take a step closer to a circular economy we couldn't just stop at better materials, we needed a better system, one that would promote reuse over single use, and encourage product stewardship. Ultimately, we knew we needed to create a positive impact at every step of our product's lifecycle, not just the beginning. 

So we developed our Better Collection Network. 
Better Collection is a collaboration between us, our retailers and consumers to ensure no bottle ever needs to end up as waste, and can instead be returned to our stockists nationwide for composting. 

 
But we couldn't stop there, to ensure that each bottle has the best chance of being composted we developed our own composting sites throughout New Zealand. So far, we have 7 sites nationwide. We compost bottles alongside rescued food waste and use the compost produced to regenerate land and grow food for local community in our urban farm in Porirua, Wellington. This process allows us to rebuild our soil ecosystems, sequester carbon from the atmosphere and create a local, resilient food system for our people. Our bottle made all of this possible, and we can't wait to see what comes next. 


The only low carbon, waste-free and regenerative bottled water option in New Zealand.
