FreeWater is paid for by ads that are printed directly onto eco-friendly cans and cartons. Ten cents per beverage is donated to charity.
No, as an early-stage startup, shipping small amounts of water vast distances is very costly and bad for the environment. However, we are currently shipping large orders of FreeWater B2B to advertisers & distributors.
Looking carefully at the pros and cons of both aluminum bottles and paper cartons, we know neither is perfect – but both are far more sustainable than plastic bottles. Our long term goal is to cultivate, manufacture, fill, distribute, and recycle all our beverages in 100% hemp cartons from the same location.
The majority of bottled water is contaminated with the chemical BPA. High levels of BPA have been linked to diseases such as hormonal disruption, diabetes, high blood pressure, infertility, breast cancer, and hazardous effects on the brain and behavior of infants and young children.
We are currently contributing our donations to Well Aware (wellawareworld.org). Well Aware is known for drilling quality wells and boast a 100% success rate.
Please help us to spread the word by sharing our project on social media and with your friends and family.
It depends on several factors:
1) Aluminum bottles or paper cartons?
2) The number of units?
3) Are we distributing the water or are you distributing the water?
4) The location of distribution?
5) Do you have a graphic designer on staff or do you need us to design it for you?
6) Are you splitting the ad space with someone else?
Aluminum bottles have a MOQ of a pallet which has 1,680 units. You can split the label’s real estate with a total of three brands.
Paper cartons have a MOQ of 10k units. You can split the label’s real estate with a total of eight brands.
Roughly six weeks from design approval and payment. However, you should always place your order as far in advance as possible if you have a time sensitive project.
The paper cartons supply chain was negatively affected by the pandemic. The current lead time for paper cartons is 5 months. However, as of 4/26/2022, the supply chain issues look like they are being solved and our manufacturer claims there will be a 60 day lead time in the near future.
FreeWater is the best brand loyalty platform on Earth and there are unique opportunities to incorporate this new and exciting medium into most ad budgets. We will ultimately prove that this medium has a much higher ROI than Direct Mail and is currently much cheaper per ten impressions. However, in the earliest days of this project we wouldn’t recommend this medium to anyone with an ad budget that is less than $1000.
We are currently looking to partner with distribution points in the lower 48 states. In most cases, our ideal distribution partnerships are with retail stores and outlets. However, we may be willing to partner with the right individuals to distribute FreeWater in their town. Please fill out the contact form on our distribution page / leave a detailed message and someone from our team will get back to you ASAP.
Retail outlets need to commit to distributing a minimum of one pallet of FreeWater per month.
The location needs to be enticing enough to line up advertisers to cover the cost of the product/distribution.
Each location will need to advertise that they are a FreeWater distributor by posting a sign on their window and on their website if applies. We will also market your location for you.
Individuals who wish to “officially” distribute FreeWater must be hand selected by our team to ensure that they are a good fit.
No, but that is the fastest way to get started.
We will create special partnerships for 501(c)(3) organizations or any other positive community outlets such as church groups, sports programs, and schools. Partners who are using FreeWater as a fundraiser must be able to sell all the ad space themselves and we will contribute between ten and twenty five cents per beverage to the partner depending on the quantity and the price at which the product is sold.
Yes, we are launching a free supermarket / Amazon 2.0, and FreeWater is simply our first product. We have created a handful of processes that will enable the free and profitable distribution of nearly every type of product that can be purchased in COSTCO today. This includes food, beverages, clothing, medicine, computers, transportation, and travel. Each category of product will donate a percentage of its revenue to a different charitable cause.
