In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Philippine Spring Water and Resources, Inc. (PSWRI), makers of bottled water brand Nature’s Spring Water, reaffirmed its commitment to serve the community as a 100% Filipino-owned company that provides safe, affordable, and accessible drinking water to local and international markets.
Nature’s Spring Water remains to have community service as the hallmark of its business. It prides itself in the quality, safety and affordability of its water products, as well as its availability anywhere in the country, earning for itself the tag of Tubig Para Sa Pinoy.
The brand was established in Cebu in 1991 to respond to the lack of safe drinking water after Super Typhoon Ruping devastated the province. Since then, it has gone a long way in etching a name on Filipino households.
In fact, the company is now ISO 2015:9001 certified, with their products and processes regularly checked and monitored by an accredited third-party laboratory as well as the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA). It is the only Halal-certified bottled drinking water product in Mindanao with a certificate of accreditation from the Office of Muslim Affairs (OMA).
For its 30th year, through the Nature’s Spring Foundation, it redoubles the effort to pursue its community programs on education, health, and the environment. An Adopt-A-School program in Mandaue provides chosen schools with teacher training, teaching aids and facilities while also ensuring the upkeep of their classrooms, laboratories and libraries. Scholarships and training opportunities are extended to out of school youth and employees’ children.
On keeping its foot on the ground and close to environment, it has a program called Adopt A Watershed in Cebu (in the areas of Kotkot, Mananga and Lusaran). This program highlights reforestation and urban greening. Its ongoing waste reduction livelihood project with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) called “Empty Bottles For School Supplies Swap” is linked to its Adopt A School Program.
Environment-wise, Nature’s Spring Water has been singled out for its effort to lessen its impact on the environment. All of its water bottles now use a shorter cap that makes use of 35% less plastic, making them one of the lightest bottle caps in the country.
