Our mission at 8 Water New Zealand is to provide one of nature’s purest water to the world in a sustainable way while increasing the health and well-being of others.
The water’s origin is via evaporation from the Southern Ocean resulting in rainfall and snow over New Zealand’s mountain ranges. The water accumulates in the underground aquifers and surface flow that then is discharged into the South Pacific Ocean. This cycle represents a renewable resource that can be sustainably harvested while having minimal environmental impact.
