Clearer Water, the ethical bottled water from Northern Ireland, has become a member of British Bottled Water Producers.
Clearer Water is a social enterprise, so all profits¬ go back into Clearer, where the money is channelled into good causes that help change people’s lives. Locally, Clearer Water has built a relaxing working environment for disadvantaged people who ¬find it difficult to get jobs, or are unable to work in typical working environments. Globally, the organisation concentrates on helping people gain access to clean water by digging wells to bring sustainable water supplies through a partner charity in Africa.
Clearer Water also prides its operation on transparency and traceability. Co-Founder and Manager, Maureen Hanvey, explains: “Every bottle of Clearer Water is fully traceable, from the team member who bottled it, its Ph., to the temperature and weather conditions during bottling, to the vegetables growing in our garden at the time. We think it helps show how much of a difference each bottle can make.
“We operate to the ‘Triple Bottom Line’ principle. We believe that our business should focus on people our planet and profit”.
Clearer Water is Ireland’s first Social Enterprise Bottled Water with 100% of profits split between the local and overseas schemes.
The water is sourced from deep beneath the ancient lands of Magheramorne, birthplace of St Comgall. Buried beneath 65-145million year-old volcanic lava, a pure white limestone, locally known as the Ulster White Limestone Formation, was formed during the Upper Cretaceous Period. Naturally filtered by the geological strata to its natural purity and enriched with minerals, Clearer Water is drawn from a protected deep underground source. It has a Ph of 7.8 providing a water which is naturally Alkaline.
Clearer Water bottles into 500ml PET Bottles still water and in March 2016 will launch its Premium Glass Bottle Range in sizes: 750ml, 500ml, 330ml and 250ml. The water is sourced at Larne Lough Nurseries in the North East of Northern Ireland.
Jo Jacobius, Director of British Bottled Water Producers, said: “We are delighted to welcome Clearer Water as a member of our network. We represent 13 of the best small and medium sized British bottlers and distributors and this is our first member in Northern Ireland. The company is a truly impressive one, offering as it does help for community members both locally in Northern Ireland and overseas. We are proud to have them as part of British Bottled Water Producers”.
