Ice River Spring supported the “Buy Good. Feel Good.” Expo in May. It is a trade show that features organizations and that empower communities and innovate for a better world.
Kelly Okamura from Rabble.ca attended the show and met Crystal Howe (Gott), Sustainability Manager, who was representing Ice River Springs and BMP Recycling.
Okamura featured Ice River Springs in her podcast saying, “If you see their green bottles, it is not a green marketing wash.”
“The demonstrator was telling us how the bottled water went from potable beverage to plastic gardening chairs for closed-loop recycling process, charmed me.”
She describes how the Ice River Springs company started its bottled water operation on a family farm as preparation for Y2K. She stressed how important it is to have a good business model but also be mindful to your employees, stakeholders and the environment.
“That helped me to understand they didn’t buy their award for environmental initiatives,” explains Okamura in her podcast.
