Flow Water Inc. has received its announced its official designation as a Certified B Corporation. Certified by global movement B Lab, Flow Water, which produces a naturally alkaline spring water, is being recognized as meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
Flow originates in a company-owned artesian spring in Bruce County, Ontario, where it naturally collects healthy, essential minerals that give the water electrolytes for optimal hydration and an alkaline pH of 8.1 to keep acid levels in check.

Packaged in an eco-friendly, non-PET and BPA-free, paperboard Tetra Pak carton, Flow has one of the lowest carbon footprint containers in the industry – 100 percent recyclable and up to 70 percent renewable.
“Receiving B Corp Certification further solidifies Flow Water as the environmental leader in the premium water category,” says Flow CEO and Founder Nicholas Reichenbach. “We’re extremely proud to receive this ethical seal of approval from B Lab, and to be recognized for Flow’s eco-innovation and practices.”
B Lab reviews all parts of a company’s business practices, including sustainability, labour practices, and philanthropy.
