ECO FOR LIFE STILL SPRING WATER 500ml

Our passion for the purity and sustainability of Eco for Life, began with our passion for the environment.  We decided to fill our 100% plant made bottles with a great tasting still spring water, bottled at source in The New Forest.

Natural, Premium, Reusable, Refillable, Eco for Life bottles are fully biodegradable and compostable, they are made 100% from plants from a completely renewable resource and can be disposed of in several eco-friendly ways.

They will biodegrade in properly managed home compost heaps and can also be biodegraded in industrial composters which many local authorities and waste management companies have access to, a fantastic way to return these 100% plant made bottles back to the soil from which they grew.

Eco for Life bottles are fully chemical free, and because they are made 100% from plants, this stops finite fossil fuels from being used as a raw material, crude oil amounts to approximately 25% of the composition of each PET plastic bottle.

When it comes to the health of the planet as well as ourselves, our bottles are a big step in the right direction away from ‘plastic’ single use bottles.
