Most bottled water comes in bottles marked with the symbol #1. This indicates that it’s made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET, PETE), which is recognized as a safe plastic and contains no BPA. At Eska, we only use PETE #1, which you can find at the bottom of any Eska bottle.
Spring water – Comes from an underground water source (not a public community supply). It should contain fewer than 500 parts per million of total dissolved solids. Mineral water – Also comes from an underground source but has more than 500 parts per million of dissolved solids. This type of water comes in still and […]

Water labeled ‘natural spring’ or ‘mineral’ has received an official designation. This certification is only awarded once the water has passed strict tests to prove that it’s naturally free […]
