Our passion for the environment runs deep.

We’re more than just a bottled water company.

We’re recyclers. Environmental problem solvers. Committed to recycling 100% of our plastic, again and again.

In 1995, our decision to start up a Canadian family-run company with a focus on sustainability just came naturally. Since then, Ice River has been dedicated to producing the highest quality, environmentally responsible bottled water out there.

Ice River Sustainable Solutions is known for our forward-thinking innovation in eco-friendly design. By shifting our focus to the plastic bottles that contained our natural spring water, we came up with new ways to recycle 100% of the bottle – right down to the cap. Even when we were told it couldn’t be done. Our green initiatives and our ambition grew from there.

We saw great potential in plastic.

We’re the first North American beverage company to build our own recycling facility, which is how we recycle approximately 80% of the PET collected in the Blue Box and give that plastic new purpose. Collaborating with other companies, we produce eco-friendly packaging and products made from 100% recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic, that are 100% recyclable. It just takes a little innovation and a lot of determination to find more sustainable solutions.

We’ve kept over 425 million pounds of plastic out of North America’s landfills since 2009.

It’s worth every effort. Protecting the environment is at the heart of every business decision we make. If we all put in the work, we’ll all be able to enjoy this big, beautiful blue planet for many more generations to come.

Every little thing adds up.

The environmental impact of our recycling efforts are the numbers we use to measure our success.
