US: ONE World Enterprises launches bottled water

By | 14 July 2009

ONE World Enterprises, the Los Angeles-based functional drinks group, has launched a namesake bottled water brand in Tetra Pak cartons in the US.

The group claimed that ONE Water, which is a 100% natural spring water sourced in Eastern Canada, is more environmentally friendly than bottled water packaged in plastic bottles.

"Plastic bottles can take up to 700 years to begin to decompose, while Tetra Pak cartons begin to decompose in only 12 to 15 weeks," said the firm, announcing the launch of ONE Water.

ONE said that it would donate 100% of proceeds on ONE Water to between 10 and 15 non-profit organisations each year. 

It added that Tetra Pak cartons used for ONE Water do not contain the bisphenol-A packaging chemical, which is currently under review by the US Food and Drug Administration due to health concerns.

ONE Water will retail in 16.9oz Tetra Pak cartons at retail stores nationwide, for between US$1.49 and $1.79.
