OUR WATER

WHERE DOES SURFWATER COME FROM?


Our water is carefuly sourced outside of California because of the water shortage we face in our state.

It comes from an underground aquifer and is then purified through a reverse osmosis system to make SURFWATER as pure and delicious as possible.

It has a high pH level of 7+ and Electrolytes which are both great for our body.




WHAT ARE ELECTROLYTES?


Electrolytes are minerals in your blood and other body fluids that carry an electric charge.

Electrolytes affect how your body functions in many ways, including:

  • The amount of water in your body
  • The acidity of your blood (pH)
  • Your muscle function
  • Other important processes

You normally lose electrolytes when you sweat. You should replace them by drinking fluids that contain electrolytes. Normal Water does not contain electrolytes.

Common electrolytes include:

  • Calcium
  • Chloride
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Sodium




WHAT IS PH AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?


A measure of acidity and alkalinity of a solution that is a number on a scale on which a value of 7 represents neutrality and lower numbers indicate increasing acidity.

Higher numbers increasing alkalinity.

Despite the lack of proven scientific research, consuming neutral alkaline water is believed relating to health benefits, such as:

  • anti-aging properties
  • colon-cleansing properties
  • immune system support
  • hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties
  • weight loss
  • cancer resistance





ALUMINIMUM BOTTLE & PACKAGING

CAN THE ALUMINUM BOTTLE BE RECYCLED? IS IT BPA FREE?


Yes, our aluminum bottles are 100% recyclable and also 100% BPANI (non BPA liner). Not only is aluminum the most recycled material, it’s also infinitely recyclable as well. The material from one aluminum bottle can be returned into making another identical bottle. No new material needed! Amazingly, this process can happen in less than 60 days!




WHY ARE ALUMINIUM BOTTLES THE BEST ALTERNATIVE TO PLASTIC BOTTLES ?


Aluminum is recycled more than twice as often as plastic, glass, and cartons. Its high scrap value ensures demand to recycle and reuse.




WHAT ABOUT CARTONS ?


Single use cartons are more complicated than they seem. Shelf-stable cartons contain multiple thin layers of paper, plastic, and aluminum. Recycling them is a challenge. Less than half of American households have curbside recycling for cartons, which means a lot of these packages are never recycled!




GLASS?


Glass can be recycled (not bad!), but not as much as aluminum (31% glass vs 77%-100% aluminum). Heavier too, so it takes more fuel to transport glass and recycle. That's extra carbon emissions..




PLANT BASED PLASTIC?


Yep, there are several plastic bottles out there made from plants. PLANTS! They should be eco-friendly. Right? Well, it’s true that they are produced with less energy, but the end product is still plastic. And that means that they come with plastic’s end-of-life problems. Not all plant based plastics decompose. Even when bottles are labeled as biodegradable or compostable, they just can't be buried in the backyard soil to decompose and dissolve. This process requires an industrial composting facility. All bottles require separation from petroleum-based plastics (which isn’t really happening), so they usually end up in landfills and oceans anyway. Bummer. Not sounding like such a great option anymore, right?




CAN I REFILL AND REUSE THE SURFWATER BOTTLE?


Yes, just wash the Surfwater bottle and reuse. Our bottles are designed as a single use product - please recycle. That said, we still wear our 5 year old jeans. :)
