What are we made of?
The JUST water bottle relies on the use of paper. We like paper because it is derived from trees which are renewable or grow back naturally. Using renewable materials contributes to lowered carbon emissions.
What do all these materials do?
Using paper as the main material is how the JUST water bottle reduces its environmental footprint while still maintaining its structure. An aluminum foil barrier does an excellent job protecting the water from light, oxygen and other potential contamination. Both the aluminum and paper are shielded by a layer of BPA-free plastic lamination to protect the integrity of the bottle.
The paper used in the JUST water package is 100% traceable and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Traceability back to the point of origin for paper sources is important for several reasons. One of the most important is so that the forests will be around for future generations to enjoy and for wood to continue to provide so much benefit for the world around us.

A “pre-form” is a condensed version of a plastic bottle before it is heated and blown into a bottle shaped mold.
And 13 trucks to ship fully formed bottles.

The JUST water spout is wider for easier drinkability. This helps hydration and greater likelihood of finishing an open bottle.
