Flõ (Fun, loving, original) Drinks
I need to drink more water and get healthy. I need to cut out soft drinks and juices with all their sugar, sweeteners, preservatives, colouring and other additives.
But I want a water that I enjoy drinking, even if I’m not thirsty. A water that I don’t have to remind myself to drink, because I crave it. A water bursting with delicious real flavours, yet it’s still water and not a soft drink in disguise.
All natural, not sweetened, no calories, no preservatives, no colouring and not acidic. I’m sure other people want that too. But it doesn’t exist, so we’ll make it.
And we’ll be a circular brand that benefits humanity: producing healthy products in eco-conscious packaging and giving back by donating 10% of our profits to clean water and clean planet projects.
Our 500ml bottles are made of 62% paper, a renewable resource which can be naturally regrown and they’re 100% recyclable.
The paper in our bottles come from certifed forests to ensure permanent sustainability, replantation , overlogging prevention and the protection of local communities and eco-surroundings.
A 500ml Flõ bottle produces around 61% less CO2 than a comparable plastic/PET bottle.
Around 86% less water is needed to produce the packaging for a 500ml Flõ bottle compared with plastic/PET.
Things we want you to know
Our Essence Water is one of the purest mineral waters on Earth infused with just a drop of natural flavours and absolutely nothing else. It contains no calories, sugar, sweeteners, preservatives, colouring, acids or any of those other ingredients typically found in other flavoured waters and soft drinks.
We have an eclectic range of flavours for you to enjoy: Watermelon with Garden Mint, Cucumber with Lemon, Lychee with Hibiscus, and Blueberry with Vanilla.
The best thing you can drink is water, but plain water is boring so we often don’t drink enough of it. The alternatives are too unhealthy (including typical flavoured waters which are soft drinks in disguise) with all their sugar/sweeteners, preservatives and low pH levels.
So we developed our Essence Water over a couple of years with the aim of making the tastiest water ever while retaining the character of water: perfect pH, no calories, sugar, sweeteners, preservatives etc… Just like infusing a piece of fruit in a jug of mineral water.
Probably the best mineral water in the world. It is definitely one of the finest and purest mineral waters on the planet. Water purity is determined by the level of nitrates – the lower the better. Each bottle of our Essence Water contains under 0.12mg of nitrates which is less than the famous mountain water from France renowned for its purity.
Our Essence Water also has a low mineral content and each bottle contains just 3.6mg of sodium which makes it suitable for a low sodium diet.
No! We don’t add any sugar, sweeteners, preservatives or anything you wouldn’t expect to find in mineral or spring water. Just a drop of natural flavours.
Zero calories and zero everything. No fat, carbs/sugar, protein or salt.
We only use premium natural flavours which are obtained from fruits and vegetables.
Flõ Essence Water is vegan and vegetarian, gluten-free, and safe for pregnant women and children.
It isn’t just sugar that’s bad for teeth, the acidity levels of other flavoured waters, soft drinks and juices can also erode your teeth. A perfect pH level of 7 means our Essence Water is like plain water: gentle on teeth.
Our bottles (cartons) are 100% recyclable and are the most eco-conscious packaging we could have used for our drinks. So many people said we should use clear plastic bottles, but what’s the point in making a healthy drink but putting it in a packaging format detrimental to the environment, oceans and conversely – you.
Instead we have opted for our paper-based bottles which are made of 62% paper (a renewable resource) and come from sustainable certified forests. More trees are planted than chopped and they clean our air before they are used to make a bottle of Flõ.
If they end up in a landfill, our bottles will biodegrade faster than PET and not be so damaging to our eco-system.
We donate 10% of our profits to clean water projects around the globe to bring clean drinking water to those who don’t have this most basic human right.
At Flõ one of the reasons we have opted for paper-based bottles is that 1-2 litres of water is used to make a 500ml plastic bottle which is more water than what the bottle is filled with! With nearly 1 billion people around the world without clean water, we think such an essential and scarce resource should be used and shared more responsibly.
