With approximately eight million tonnes of plastic ending up in the ocean each year, CanO Water is the ecofriendly and most recyclable alternative to single use plastic bottles. Already stocked in thousands of retailers across the UK including Tesco, Ocado, Selfridges and Harrods, the brand also distributes internationally to countries in Europe and Asia. CanO Water is a fully recyclable alternative to bottled water in the form of an aluminium can.
CanO Water was founded in 2015 by three friends from London; Ariel Booker (age 27), Josh White (age 29) and Perry Alexander (age 32) after a trip to a remote island in Thailand opened their eyes to the damaging impact plastic bottles are having on the environment. They began to look at more sustainable solutions to single use bottles in a bid to help to save our oceans.
After recognising the benefits of aluminium packaging, they decided to introduce a canned water alternative to the market and CanO Water was born, sourcing the best quality Spring Water from the Alps. The brand were also the first of their kind to introduce resealable ringpulls for optimimum convenience and prevention of waste.
Aluminium cans are the most recyclable and recycled drink containers on the market. In fact, aluminium is recycled more than twice as often as plastic, glass and cartons. Not only does plastic pollute our oceans and landfills, it also enters our food chain and contaminates the food we eat, not to mention the fact it can kill marine life and birds in alarming quantities.
Ariel Booker, Co-Founder of CanO Water comments: ‘When Josh, Perry and I visited Thailand several years ago, we were disgusted at the damage we saw – it was a far cry from the beautiful picturesque scenes portrayed by tourist boards. We instantly felt it was our responsibility to make a positive change and from that day forward, we have never looked back."
