April 13, 2015, Toronto – A Canadian company has developed boxed water sourced from an artesian aquifer in southwestern Ontario.

Flow, a company founded by Nicholas Reichenbach,
offers consumers an environmentally friendly alternative to
plastic bottled water with the added healthful benefits of drinking
naturally alkaline spring water from a local and sustainable source, the company said in a news release.

The water has been nurtured for thousands of years in a deep, artesian aquifer in southwestern Ontario,
where it naturally collects essential minerals, electrolytes and
an alkaline pH, the company said, adding that the water has no additives and has undergone no industrial processes, and is PET and BPA free.

"We imagined a bottled water brand that was naturally healthful. Not
filtered or altered tap water owned by a major corporation. We looked
for an alternative to the plastic bottle, a package with the lowest
possible carbon footprint. We stopped looking and we started creating,"
said founder and chief executive officer Nicholas Reichenbach.

More than two thirds of Flow's package is made of paperboard that comes
from trees harvested in responsibly managed forests and/or controlled
sources. None of the resources used in our cartons comes from old growth
trees or rainforests. It uses just enough material to keep the package
stable.
