Flow, a naturally alkaline spring water, is of the highest quality in the world. The product is nurtured in a company owned artesian spring in South Bruce County, Ontario where it naturally collects healthful, essential minerals that give the water electrolytes for optimal hydration and an alkaline pH of 8.1 to keep acid levels in check. With no industrial processing and thus all-natural filtering, Flow’s water source comes straight from the earth into the pack. Packaged in an eco-friendly, non-PET and BPA-free Tetra Pak paperboard carton, Flow has one of the lowest carbon footprint containers in the industry – 100 percent recyclable and up to 70 percent renewable.

“Receiving B Corp Certification further solidifies Flow Water as the environmental leader in the premium water category,” says Flow CEO and founder Nicholas Reichenbach. “We’re extremely proud to receive this ethical seal of approval from B Lab, and to be recognized for Flow’s eco-innovation and practices.”

B Lab reviews all parts of a company’s business practices, including sustainability, labour practices, and philanthropy. Only 2,297 corporations worldwide have received B Corp certification to date with Flow Water Inc. being the first Canadian company in the water industry, and one of only few globally.

Flow is listed at retailers across North America, with Canadian retailers including Whole Foods, Loblaws, Rexall, Metro Ontario and Quebec, Overwaitea Food Group, Sobeys, Safeway West, Farm Boy, International News, UNFI Distribution, Wallace & Carrey and in the USA at Whole Foods, Gelson’s, Harmon’s, Natural Grocers/Vitamin Cottage, Earth Fare, Central Market, Jewel Osco, Safeway, Amazon, Kowalski’s and Bristol Farms. Flow is also available at strategic boutique fitness studios across North America and by milkman-style delivery in an eco-friendly, electric vehicle through its Direct service in Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa and Montreal.
