Long before man reached the remote island of Iceland, a massive volcanic eruption occurred, creating the Ölfus Spring deep below the earth’s surface. For 5,000 years, water has filtered slowly through layers of lava rock, creating a naturally alkaline water with the perfect mineral balance. Shielded by an impenetrable layer of lava rock and surrounded by a 128,000 acre exclusion zone, the Spring is constantly replenished by a gradual filtration of rainfall and snowmelt over uninhabited and untouched lava fields. With over 900,000 cubic meters of water overflowing from the Ölfus Spring into the ocean every day, it's one of the world's largest natural springs. 
 
Icelandic Glacial was the world’s first bottled water to be certified as CarbonNeutral for both product and operation. Icelandic Glacial takes immense pride in running a completely sustainable operation fueled entirely by geothermal and hydroelectric power. At 7,688 sq. ft., the world-class facility is one of the world's greenest and cleanest. In a commitment to reach a target of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, Icelandic Glacial measures and reduces emissions through a combination of internal reductions and environmental instruments on an ongoing basis. To offset any remaining emissions, Icelandic Glacial invests in verified renewable energy, forestry and resource conservation projects around the world. Our efforts have been rewarded with international recognition, most notably winning the 2007 Bottled Water World Design Awards for Best Sustainability Initiative. 
 
The signature sculpted, glacier-inspired bottleneck, featuring four profiles, reinforces the water's heritage and a premium position. It was named "Best Overall Concept and Best Label" at the Bottled Water World Design Awards. The high-grade rPET bottles are BPA-free and bottles, labels, caps and cardboard packing are 100% recyclable.
 
By 2021, Icelandic Glacial plans to use 50% post-consumer recycled plastic (rPET) in their PET packaging and offer their still and sparkling varieties in aluminum cans. They will also introduce a new 5-liter packaging option for the refrigerator or counter along with a 20-liter packaging option for food service. These innovations mark a significant step for Icelandic Glacial in their continued efforts to minimize their environmental impact.
