You don't have to tell us twice. We get it—with non-stop dancing under the hot sun at a weekend-long party, it's super, duper important to have fresh, clean water available for your attendees. Unfortunately, this often means thousands upon thousands of single-use plastic bottles that most likely won't make it to a recycling bin (the national average for plastic recycling hovers right around 30%). Water stations are a great eco-friendly option, but having a reusable bottle on-hand is another issue in itself. Each attendee has to remember to bring it along in the first place or shell out $20 for one on-site, it has to be lugged around all day, and when it inevitably gets lost, it's expensive to replace. Banning bottled water entirely often means attendees are less likely to stay hydrated without a convenient on-the-go water option. From a production standpoint, this also means tons of lost revenue from both sponsorship fees and concessions.
We Can Help.
Green Sheep Water is recycled more often.
Aluminum gets recycled more than 2x as often as plastic (about 70% of the time, in fact). It is the most recycled and recyclable beverage container out there, even more than glass or cartons!
Green Sheep Water is a 1% for the Planet Member.
We donate 1% of sales to water.org to help provide clean water to people around the world.
Green Sheep Water gets colder faster.
Aluminum bottles chill faster, so the water inside will be ice cold and refreshing when you’re ready for it. What's more, it can be chilled on ice without breaking down, like those paper-based cartons.
Green Sheep Water is infinitely recyclable.
Aluminum recycling is a perfect loop. This isn’t the case with plastic, which gets downcycled into lower quality material with each cycle.
Green Sheep Water is made in the U.S.
We source our water and packaging from the Midwest. Less schlepping stuff around = less emissions.

Bringing a huge group of passionate, like-minded people together to have fun and celebrate music, art, coffee, biking, or whatever else is a special thing, but it's no secret that these gatherings are inherently rough on the environment. Because of this, nearly every event these days has a page dedicated to showing fans how they're doing their part to be as sustainable as possible. There's a focus on carpooling, biking, recycling, composting, but (way) more often than not, beverage offerings themselves are rarely mentioned. We think this should change.
With more and more events to choose from all the time, consumers are forced to pick and choose experiences. Time and time again, we're seeing that brand and brand values are an important part of that decision-making process. In order not to get passed over, make sure your brand is doing all it can to show it considers the environment every step of the way.
Green City Market, one of the nation's most highly-regarded weekly farmer markets, made the switch to Green Sheep Water. Over the course of the season, they were able to keeps tons of plastic waste out of the waste stream and make a hefty profit on each bottle sale, which they then used to cover the many costs of putting on the market and associated events throughout the year.
