Industry News: JUST WATER Announces B Corporation Certification



New York, NY (December 7, 2017) – As announced today, JUST water has received an official B Corporation Certification. Maintaining and upholding rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency, this milestone places the brand in league with other notable B Corps within just two years since its initial launch.

“A B Corp certification validates our mission in an objective manner,” comments JUST CEO Ira Laufer. “JUST has forged a new path around sustainable packaging and equitable sourcing, but B Corp provides a recognized and respected affirmation of that foundation. It also incorporates us into a community of companies that share a similar ethos. At JUST, we’re trying to do better by people and the planet. That’s what it always comes back to, and we’re proud to have the B Corp recognition acknowledging that.”

Sustainability is integral to JUST’s overarching mission. JUST is committed to changing the way consumer goods are created—starting with water, the way it’s sourced, and bottled. The brand sources 100% spring water in an equitable partnership with the town of Glens Falls, NY, paying a premium for the water which supports the local community. The JUST water bottle is paper-based, a fully recyclable carton made from 82% renewable resources. JUST takes pride in being a collective part of creating a world where businesses doing right by the people and the planet are the norm, not the exception.

Andy Fyfe from B Corp Growth at B Lab adds, "JUST water certifying as a B Corp is a testament to its commitment of using business as a force for good right out of the gate. It builds a foundation for the company to remain loyal to its mission for the long run and by doing so, joins a community of over 2,000 companies, across 60 countries, and 150 industries leading the way to inspire the next generation of leaders."

“We’re very honored, proud, and excited to be recognized as a B Corp,” adds JUST founder Jaden

Company Spotlight: JUST Water



JUST water is responsibly sourced, produced and packaged for improved environmental and community impact.






The JUST water package is made up of 53% paper, a renewable resource which can be regrown naturally.






It eliminates exposure to sunlight, so there is no effect on the quality of the water.



Our paper comes from certified forests

The paper content of the JUST water package comes from managed forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ and The Rainforest Alliance™ in conjunction with Tetra Pak®.



Ethically Traded Water

Cities and towns that are rich in water due to abundant rain and snow each year have more water than they can effectively utilize with much of it ending up back in local rivers and lakes.

What if a community were able to benefit from a small amount of its excess water in a way that provided a new revenue stream while a provision protected their watershed?

When we collaborated with Glens Falls it struck us that this could be considered a ethically traded water agreement. This ensures watersheds are protected and monitored while fair price would be established for this water source.

Company Spotlight: Nuva Drinks



Natural spring water with a kiss of great tasting extracts and flavours

Nuva - is a new concept for water drinks in the UK. Created to bridge the gap between plain and flavoured water, our philosophy is simple - provide a natural product for people who want better hydration, but without the sugar, sweeteners, preservatives and calories that often come with soft drinks.

Through a blend of natural spring water and a kiss of natural extracts and flavours, Nuva has created three incredible drinks - Cucumber & Mint, Ginger & Lemon and Melon & Jasmine - that taste great and come with no hidden ‘nasties’.



The Nuva Story

Nuva is the innovation of Gemma Pond and Christine Renier, who created the business through a desire to offer people better choices.

With a strong interest in yoga, exercise and living a healthy lifestyle, Gemma was shocked to discover the amount of sugar, artificial sweeteners and preservatives that go into soft drinks.  Even healthier options such as reduced sugar drinks can contain the equivalent of five sugar cubes in a small half-litre bottle. She wanted to do something different and took on the challenge of creating a truly healthy and refreshing alternative - a completely natural drink which would encourage people to drink more water and stay hydrated.

Tropical water



About the Company
We started innocent in 1999 after selling our smoothies at a music festival. We put up a big sign asking people if they thought we should give up our jobs to make smoothies, and put a bin saying 'Yes' and a bin saying 'No" in front of the stall. Then we got people to vote with their empties. At the end of the weekend, the 'Yes' bin was full, so we resigned from our jobs the next day and got cracking. Since then we've started making veg pots, juices and kids' drinks, in our quest to make natural, delicious, healthy foods that help people live well and die old.

Water Spotlight: Antrim Hills Water Within 100% Pure Artesian Spring Water



Deep underground, Basalt rocks filter, protect and channel Water Within, from our Artesian Spring in the hills of Antrim.

It's naturally pure, so the water within you, can be too!



Pure Artesian Spring

Our Artesian spring is a naturally occurring phenomenon which cannot be equalled by man.  The water comes from porous rock located deep underground in a pressurized environment surrounded by basalt rock.  This is one of Earth's most stringent filters, which stops pollutants entering the water and also purifies it.

The pressure propels the water to the surface through fissures in the impermeable layers of basalt where it then flows naturally under gravity to our factory.

As it is always protected from the atmosphere by deep layers of rock, water from an artesian spring is naturally much purer than that from other sources.

This pure, natural water is then bottled with no processing other than a particle filter.

Product Spotlight: Vivid Water in a Box


Water in a Box has been created with the long-term aim to encourage people to change their habits when it comes to choosing a water brand and to go for cardboard instead of plastic.

About the Water

Our spring water originates from a deep-seated underground source in Somerset, naturally filtered through mineral-rich rocks that remove all impurities.

Our water boasts an excellent mineral balance and we constantly monitor our water's purity and nutrient levels to maintain highest quality standards.

Water in a Box is boxed at source in Somerset's ancient and magical Mendip Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty that produces absolutely pure water with a perfectly balanced mineral content.

Our boxed water is long lasting and purity assured, as it's completely sealed from light and air to stay fresh, pure and cool.

Typical analysis mg/l
Bicarbonate (CaCO3) 287
Chloride (Cl) 15.7
Sulphate (SO4) 20.3
Sodium (Na) 8.8
Magnesium (Mg) 18.6
Potassium (K) 2.2
Calcium (Ca) 111
pH 6.84

About the Box

Our Box is made from paperboard, which is a 100% renewable,
and sustainable material.

The paperboard is made from carbon-neutral wood, from responsibly managed and FSC approved forests that act as 'carbon sinks', absorbing CO2 and releasing oxygen.

The wood processing by-products also provide renewable bio-energy for the paper mills and local heating, reducing fossil fuel consumption.

Sadly plastic bottles are made from non–renewable resources and their greenhouse gas emissions are at least 3 times higher than that of our boxes.

Our lightweight Box is 100% recyclable, only water-based inks are used for printing and we have been granted an OPRL licence for our recyclability.

Ultimately our Box will also help retailers and the supply chain to reduce their own carbon footprints.

Our Box does not contain PET so there is no health threat from leaching.

Our resealable and recyclable caps are made from the same material that IV bags are made of.
