Sourced and bottled locally, our New York spring water is bottled using materials that are safe for any body, yours and the Earth's. This bottle is BPA-free and made with Eco-Pure, a fully biodegradable plastic that is both recyclable and compostable so it wont be sitting around in a landfill for centuries.
