    This year we were the exclusive water sponsor of the Oxfam Trail Walk held in Taupo.  We were the only water sponsor as we were the only water product that was effective in the reduction of waste at the event. Oxfam had the event audited by The InStep Programme.

    The challenge of the 100 km trail meant that participants needed water, lots of it. The funds raised from the event will support Oxfam New Zealand’s humanitarian, development and advocacy work to lift some of the world’s poorest people out of poverty.  A great cause!  Check out the live blog here and our gallery.

    The Sustainable Coastlines team and Water in a Box have been at it again!  Great Barrier Island was the focus this time with great participation and great results. Once again we provided plenty of water for the thirsty troops and a great day was had by all.

    Altogether there were 22 boats, 65 kayaks and two walking groups scouring the West Coast, and collectively we picked up over 29,000 litres of rubbish! That’s 3125 kilos  of trash that is no longer on the beaches of Aotea/Great Barrier Island. 300 kilos more than last year! A big congrats to everyone who helped out for a massive effort.

    What little plastic is used in this product can easily be put to further around the house or while away. The bladder has an infinite number of handy possibilities and in this post we will continually add ideas and photos as they get submitted by users and staff.  Keep checking back from time to time for great ideas as they come to hand.  Remember REDUCE and REUSE!

    As a business we are proud to be involved with the Buy 1 Give 1 global collective. As well as recognising the need to deliver our water in the most environmentally conscious way possible, we have also seen opportunity of being involved with B1G1 as a brilliant way of helping our planet and it’s people where it is needed most.
