Just Water is the brainchild of actor Jaden Smith. While learning to surf, a 10-year-old Jaden’s eyes were opened when he found a plastic bottle floating next to him. That image stayed with him since, and in 2015 Just Water was born.
Just Water uses 100% mountain-sourced spring water in all its products, meaning naturally alkaline water with high mineral content. They never use water surrounding communities may need, so all their water is sourced sustainably and responsibly.
Recently, the brand also won the global “Best Packaging Solution” at the 2018 Global Bottled Water Congress with its Tetra Pak carton bottles. 88% of the materials used to make their cartons are plant-based. Specifically from renewable sources like trees and sugarcane, which emits around 74% less carbon emissions than their plastic bottle counterparts. They also offer a range of sparkling drinks, which come in bottles made from recycled aluminum.
The company may be called Just Water, but this doesn’t mean they’re averse to tasty, refreshing flavors. Their sparkling water “Bubbles” range includes natural fruity flavors.
- Coconut Mint
Their products are available to order online via their official website or Amazon, but be found across stores nationwide, including:
- Whole Foods
Just Water is a fantastic option for eco-conscious folk who want to do better for their planet and their health.
Craig Dubitsky founded Hello because he was tired of toothpaste brands filling their tubes with artificial colors, flavors and preservatives.

Hello is a brand that forces us to rethink our oral hygiene habits. A toothpaste brand that only includes natural ingredients is a relatively new concept, and it makes us question what chemicals have we actually been scrubbing our teeth with this whole time? Overall, Hello is a refreshing change from most commercial toothpastes out there.
