JUST water

Where is JUST water from?
JUST water is 100% spring water from the Glens Falls watershed at the base of the Adirondack Mountains in New York where water is bountiful.

Does JUST water meet bottled water regulations for water quality?
JUST water meets all 50 state regulations for bottled water. These regulations require stringent quality and testing regime at the source, bottling and finished product.

How the water is responsibly sourced?
We have an open and inclusive water agreement with the City of Glens Falls, New York – a city rich in water due to abundant rain and snow each year. Our partnership ensures the local watershed is protected while a fair price is established for our access to the water. JUST pays six times the highest local municipal rate.

What is the shelf life for JUST water?
JUST water is best enjoyed within 18 months of being bottled. Each bottle has a printed best by date, following the letters “BB”.

What is the difference between spring water, purified water and artesian water?

Spring water – must be produced from a natural spring. A spring is a location where water flows naturally to earth’s surface.

Purified water – water that comes from any source, but has been purified to remove any chemicals or contaminants. Types of purification include distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis, and carbon filtration.

Artesian water – water produced from an artesian well. To be an artesian well the water in the aquifer (a subsurface rock unit that holds and transmits water) must be under enough pressure to force it up the well to a level that is higher than the top of the aquifer.

JUST bottle

What is the bottle made from?
The JUST water is a paper-based bottle, meaning it is made from renewable resources that can be regrown naturally.
54% Paper from Certified Forests, 28% Plant-based plastic, 15% Traditional plastic, 3% Aluminum

What makes the JUST water bottle better?
JUST® water comes in a paper-based bottle that is derived primarily of renewable resources. Our packaging paper comes from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified forests, where new trees replace the ones that are harvested. The JUST water bottle recently improved from 53% to 82% renewable resources by using a plant-based plastic derived from responsibly-sourced sugarcane. Through 3rd party verification, with our bottle today, there is a 74% reduction in carbon emissions with a JUST water bottle compared to an average, medium weight plastic bottle. Never satisfied, we’ll always strive to get better and be better.

Is the JUST water bottle recyclable? Is recycling available where I live?
The JUST water bottle is recyclable anywhere carton recycling is available. Currently this is available in 56% of the United States and that number is rapidly growing. Access has grown by nearly 300% in the US since 2008. Canada has nearly universal access to carton recycling (96% of households).

Does JUST water bottle contain BPA?
The JUST water bottle is 100% BPA free!

What is the white droplet inside the container below the bell?
The white droplet is part of the plastic resin that is pressed after the top of the bottle is formed around the paper body. Rest assured it is completely safe and made of the same material as the bell and neck of container.

JUST next

What’s next for JUST?
We’re constantly striving to improve our model for greater social and environmental impact. The next step for us is to replace the shoulder and cap on the bottle with one made from plant-based PE derived from sugarcane! This is projected to be available mid-2016.

Drink Tap Water:
JUST encourages responsible water consumption, starting with the use of reusable drinking water carriers. We encourage filtered tap water to play a role in the lives of our customers because it’s JUST right. If you need bottled water on-the-go, please consider the JUST water bottle vs. the traditional plastic package
