Who are we?
8Water is the fine creation of us three mates Alex, Des, and Raval. It all started with our after work banter and food meet-ups. It dawned on us that their nightly coffees and sugar loaded fizzy‘s probably weren’t the healthiest of choices nor pair at all with the food on the table. We wanted sugar free beverages that paired well with their foods and wasn’t going to put you to sleep on the table.
Stripping it back to the bare essence of beverages, we started out with naturally sourced artesian water with an infusion of sparkling and all the good bits inside (minerals). Refreshing burst of bubbles without the guilt!
The 8Water range is all locally produced and materials sourced from around the land of Aotearoa. Local businesses working together and supporting eachother with that number 8 wired mentality. That’s pretty much it!
What’s with the 8?
It’s our lucky number! Well, that was one of the reasons. We wanted something that represented us and the 8 had ticked all the boxes. In kiwi land it symbolises that “can do” attitude, which we think we “could” do. Flip it on its side and its an infinity sign, much like the infinite and shapeless form of water. Oh, and drink your 8 glasses of sparkling a day!
We’re not growing trees, not yet anyway. But we cherish the lands of the long white cloud, so we try do our part to keep it that way through sustainable materials and water sourcing. We like glass because its able to be recycled over and over and our plastic is made of recycled plastic and 100% recyclable of course. What isn’t these days?!
