While plastic degrades with each recycling round, aluminum can be infinitely recycled while maintaining its quality. Aluminum is also recycled more often and more efficiently than plastic. Green Sheep's new SKU, Sparkling Water, is a pleasantly effervescent, USA-made beverage.

Green Sheep Water Launches First U.S. Made Sparkling Water in Recloseable Aluminum Bottles

August 30, 2016

Today Green Sheep Water announces the launch of Green Sheep Sparkling, the first premium U.S.-made sparkling water in aluminum bottles. The new Green Sheep Water line marries delicious, glacial aquifer-sourced, refreshingly bubbly water with sustainability. Packaged in Ball Corp.’s 16-ounce Alumi-tek bottles, they’re 100% recyclable and cut down on transportation emissions since they’re made right here in the U.S. and don’t have to be shipped across oceans, like the majority of premium sparkling water products.

This product is the company’s response to the growing trend for sparkling water, a category that has experienced immense growth recently (15.5 percent increase in sales for the 52 weeks ending May 15, according to Chicago-based research firm IRi), as consumers are on the lookout for interesting, healthy alternatives to sodas and sugary juices.

Green Sheep Water Launches in Ball’s Alumi-Tek Bottle

November 3, 2014

Being different isn’t always a bad thing – especially when that difference is something you believe in. That’s why Green Sheep Water – “the bottled water with a green conscience” – is launching in infinitely recyclable, 16-ounce aluminum bottles made by Ball Corporation (NYSE:BLL), instead of the usual plastic, glass or carton packaging.

“Studies show that Americans use about 1,500 plastic water bottles every second, and only about 30 percent of those bottles are recycled – the rest end up in landfills and oceans,” explained Jess Page, co-founder of Green Sheep Water. “While reusable water bottles are optimal for the environment, they are not always practical in our consumers’ busy lives. We chose Ball’s Alumi-Tek® bottle because it is a high quality package that is reclosable, portable and part of the most recycled beverage packaging in the world – beverage cans.” Read more.
