The main reason we make and manufacture plastic (PET) bottles is that we want people everywhere to enjoy the pure taste of VOSS in as many occasions as possible.
Glass is often prohibited in areas like resort swimming pools and outdoor bars. We manufacture plastic (PET) bottles so that we can ensure our fans around the world can enjoy VOSS anytime, anywhere.

Yes. At VOSS, we have aligned our company operations with the same values inherent in our product: pure water from pure resources.

VOSS is committed to reducing our carbon footprint from the moment we source our water to the moment you recycle the bottle. We have adopted a holistic, sustainable approach to bringing our pure water products to market, while striving to protect the resources from which our product flows.
