Rainwater is efficient.
Consider the water issues faced locally, nationally, and internationally today. Sky Springs™ is at the forefront of the sustainable water movement. We offer a model that addresses many of the bottled water issues assisting supply in high drought areas while decreasing carbon footprint. We can accomplish this as our model wastes only 2% of its water in its process whereas reverse osmosis wastes 50% of water used in its process. Separately, our model leverages natures distillation and gravity to drastically reduce the amount of electricity used in our process. And we build Sky Springs close to our consumers to reduce transportation pollution.
Smart use of plastics
For its small form bottles Sky Springs uses ENSO RESTORE™ which has landfill biodegradability of 32.7% in 10 months in an anaerobic landfill.
Optionally Sky Springs offers markets rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) which comes from recycled plastic packaging, such as the plastic bottles, that’s been sorted, cleaned and transformed for reuse. By utilizing rPET, we offer consumers another environmentally conscious product without sacrificing quality or marketability.
For its 5 gallon containers, Sky Springs uses RPET plastic and retire these bottles after approximately 40 uses. We use Oxo’s “Earth Caps” which are composed of Oxo biodegradable plastic.
The answer is right over our heads.
Rainwater collection and bottling can be done anywhere that it rains, no matter the climate. How many bottles can rainwater make? See the chart below.
