What is Eska’s commitment to the planet? 

We’re proud to offer natural spring water from Quebec and to use 100% recycled and recyclable plastic exclusively. With the goal of eliminating the production of new plastic, we reduce, recycle, and reuse. That’s what we call the (re)cycle of life.

Did you know that the bottles we use for our sparkling natural spring water are also 100% recycled and recyclable? Just as pure as our natural spring water, our sparkling water adds a touch of excitement to your day.
