Plastic bottles used since you have been here

WHY ALUMINUM?

BENEFITS OF ALUMINUM CAN WATER BOTTLES

For years, RAIN Water Company has worked to help our community understand the benefits of aluminum can water bottles. We’ve made it our mission to help end our unnecessary and harmful dependence on single-use plastics. Still, though, we understand the convenience of bottled water; that’s why we provide a sustainable aluminum packaging option that’s better for the environment and for you. With 1 million plastic bottles being used every minute, we know we need a lasting resolution now. The benefits of aluminum can water bottles are tremendous. Let’s work together to maintain plastic-free environments and oceans that we can all enjoy.

Rain Vs them

Aluminum

  • RECYCLED 70+%

    Aluminum has inherent cash value, meaning it actually gets recycled. “Recyclable”=/=”Recycled”

  • INFINITELY RECYCLABLE

    Aluminum maintains its quality when recycled. Bottle after bottle after bottle…

  • COOLS IN 20 MINUTES

    Cold water, fast.

  • NO MICROPARTLICLES

    …because its not plastic

Plastic

  • RECYLED 9% OF THE TIME

    Single use plastics, like those in bottled water, are only recycled 9% of the time, and made from only 3% recycled material.

  • DOWNCYCLED ONLY

    Recycled plastic must be mixed with virgin plastic to make bottles. That means more oil and a polluted Planet.

  • COOLS IN 2 HOURS

    Heres some science: plastic is less thermally conductive than aluminum. That means it takes foreverrrrr to get cold.

  • MICROPARTICLES

    93% of bottled water contains microparticles. Read as "you're drinking plastic."

Aluminum

  • ALL ALUMINUM

    Made of only aluminum.

  • EASY TO RECYCLE

    Can easily be sorted, melted and made into something new at recycling centers. Back on the shelf as something else within 60 days!

  • 100% POST CONSUMER

    Made from up to 100% Post Consumer waste. Very little virgin aluminum is mined for the production of aluminum bottles

  • CONVENIENT SHAPE

    Goes in a cup holder, backpack and on a bike ride. Round bottle, round hole.

Boxed

  • “BOXES” ARE NOT PAPER

    “Carton” or “Boxed” packaging is not what you think. These are called “Tetrapacks” and made from laminated layers of plastic, paper, wax, and aluminum

  • DIFFICULT TO RECYCLE

    Multiple layers need to be de-laminated to recycle. More often than not boxes are landfilled. Recycled at around 16%, that’s LESS than PLASTIC BOTTLES

  • 5% POST CONSUMER

    The majority of the materials in cartons are virgin

  • SQUARE PEG, ROUND HOLE

    Our lives have been designed for round bottles. Try putting a square box in the round bottle cage on your bike, then let us know how it goes.

Aluminum

  • LIGHTWEIGHT

    Only 14g per bottle!

  • TAKE ME EVERYWHERE

    Aluminum is ready to go where you are. No glass shards here.

Glass

  • HEAVY

    Glass bottles are heavy, about 10X the weight of the equivalent aluminum bottle. That's more fuel to ship both empty or filled.

  • OUCH!

    Broken glass sucks. Its not going to the beach, the pool, on a hike etc.
