Why Better Bottles?
100% pure New Zealand Spring Water.
Pure flowing water spends at least 80 years underground picking up healthy minerals along the way. Arriving at Blue Springs, Putaruru before finding its way into your bottle.
START OF LIFE
Better bottles and labels are made from renewable resources instead of finite resources such as oil. Our Regenerative material range is a step in the right direction and we continuously look for ways to improve along the way. The Renewable materials are made from naturally occurring starch and can live in specifically built end to end system. This creates the potential for a waste-free alternative to traditional plastic products.
Better bottles have a staggering 78% lesser carbon footprint compared to traditional plastic bottles in production and produce less than half the GHG. Although, our lids are currently made from plastic like any other standard beverage bottle. They can firstly be reused, before we look to repurpose these, keeping them out of the landfill and our environment. We have been working hard on a solution and we are very close to having a fully functioning compostable cap!
Once you have purchased your Better Bottle, and finished the water inside, the fun is only just beginning. Making our bottles non-toxic not only ensures they are safe to drink from once, but allows them to be refilled and reused as many times as you like. This is the best form of 'recycling' you can do.
We now have over 100 refill locations throughout New Zealand.
It is called Better Collection.
We collect the bottles and get them to where they need to go. If the town or city we sell them in does not have the correct facility, we will transport them to the closest one that does. Our plastic caps are removed and we are currently looking to purposefully recycle these into new products. This happens domestically and they do not leave New Zealand.
Our bottles and labels are certified compostable. We have also recently had an independent compost test completed. The results can be viewed here
Each person who buys a Better Bottle or business that sells them can help curve the tide of plastic waste by returning it back to us, making it easy and rewarding for you to ensure your used bottle is kept in a circular principle system over a linear one.
We can also design custom closed loop systems for businesses and events.
This is not plastic, as you know it. This is a bottle that is taken care for from end to end. Traditional single-use plastic bottles are used and thrown away, destined for landfill. We don't know where plastic, as we know it goes before it resides in our oceans of landfills. What separates us from other companies is that we are focused on eliminating waste rather than just selling products. We provide you with the option of returning the bottle to us. If your bottle is returned to us you can rest assured that it will be repurposed or composted, without exception. We aim to be better in everything that we do and this extends into developing new ways to make, use and return bottles, including re-purposing our current plastic caps while we finalise our groundbreaking compostable version.
All the water, without the waste
