I recently met Marc Howell and his wife, Wendy Goodwin, founders of Sky Springs Rainwater (local to the Austin area) and I’m really excited to share this post with you all because this water is amazing. Marc and Wendy are leading the way in a sustainable water movement that could help preserve our water sources here in Austin and around the globe!
If you’ve lived in and around Austin, TX for some time you know that the area has been in a severe drought for the past 7 years and severely effected the water levels of Lake Travis, only one of two bodies of water that supply the region’s drinking water as well as the water for agricultural industries and other businesses in the area.
Sky Springs is not only providing consumers with truly pure, fresh and chemical free water in a completely landfill biodegradable bottle, but it is truly advocating for a better alternative to the community and world’s water supply!
Sky Springs is only one of 5 companies globally that collects, harvests, stores, purifies, disinfects and bottles rain water that has never touched the ground for drinking water! Only 1 in 5!!?
The rain water never touches the ground making Sky Springs some of the purest water you can buy. There is no need for this water to be cleaned with chlorine and ammonia for it to be drinkable (it’s 20x more pure than Evian, yall!). What you get is raw water that has been carbon filtered (which loses only 2% of water in the cleaning process as compared to reverse osmosis in which 50% of the water is lost) and is completely chemical free, even down to the BPA free bottle, providing the healthiest water you can buy!
Take a look at this: A roof measuring approximately 3ft here in TX can capture 5,600 gallons of water!! And that can provide a lot of bottled water, even in drought prone areas. I really believe Marc and Wendy are on to something HUGE that is going to have a really super positive impact locally and globally. I’m so glad that I met them because they are so passionate about making a difference and their innovative work is so inspiring!
I had a chance to try their water and it is truly refreshing! You have to give Sky Springs a try at one of your local stores or restaurants, or order their water delivery online. Be a part of the change and help conserve water 🙂 drink from the abundant Sky Springs!
