About EartH2O

Foretold in the molten fury of an ancient volcanic age, sculpted by the titanic forces of nature, layer by layer and mile by mile a massive, perfect filtration system was born – an aquifer of unparalleled complexity. Over thousands of years of pristine winter snows and gentle spring rains, slowly, imperceptibly, the water that would become Earth2O eased through 1600 feet of basalt, filling the aquifer that would become a masterpiece of purity for generations. Its labyrinthine replenishment process assures that surface water cannot reach the aquifer for at least 60 years, proven by the absence of atomic era contaminants. Earth2O’s aquifer is one of only a few such sources on earth.

Because of that natural purity, once harvested, Earth2O needs only minimal treatment before we share it with our customers. Earth2O is sold throughout the Pacific Northwest at most major retailer in packages ranging from single serve to one and 2.5 gallon bottles. Earth2O is also available for home and office delivery in five gallon, BPA free bottles.

EartH2O respects the history of this pristine, natural product by their commitment to package and deliver it in the most environmentally-friendly manner available. They utilize 100% recycled content in their bottles; all of their single serve PET bottles are produced at their facility from recycled Oregon bottles. Earth2O also self-manufactures BPA free five gallon bottles for home and office delivery.

Earth2O's commitment to our community and employees is just as important as our commitment to the environment. The company built employee garden plots, watered with excess water from the bottling process, to provide an employee benefit that also reduce waste. Earth2O offers one of the best benefit packages in the area for its employees. The company contributes over 10% of profits for our community and supports employees in their efforts to support their local causes.

At Earth2O, our mission is simple – lead our industry through world class efficiency and environmental consciousness, employee care and community involvement to create a greater good for all of us. Here it is not just a slogan. Earth2O stands proudly as the world’s first bottled water company to become a certified B Corp. Following on the heels of so many industry firsts, it was our inevitable next step.

The Change We Seek®

Earth2O provides convincing evidence that sustainability pays off. While some argue that conflict between quarterly earnings and a balanced approach to business exists Earth2O has found to opposite to be true. By managing environmental and social performance Earth2O has created superior financial performance and actually create more value for their shareholders. They do this by attracting and keeping better and more committed employees and have more loyal customers. As market forces for responsible environmental and social practices by companies continue to increase, the performance advantage of high-sustainability companies will increase too. Earth2O hopes that by utilizing the transparency provided by being a Certified B Corp other companies will be inspired to broaden their measurement of success.
