General

How is FreeWater free?

FreeWater is paid for by ads that are printed directly onto eco-friendly cans and cartons. Ten cents per beverage is donated to charity.

Will you ship FreeWater to me?

No, as an early-stage startup, shipping a heavy and bulky product like water in small quantities is very costly and bad for the environment. However, we are currently shipping large orders of FreeWater B2B to advertiser/distributors.

Why aluminum bottles and paper-based cartons?

Looking carefully at the pros and cons of both aluminum cans and paper cartons, we know neither is perfect – but both are far better for the environment than plastic bottles. Our long- term goal is to cultivate, manufacture, fill, and distribute all our beverages in 100% hemp cartons from the same location.

Why BPA free?

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.

What charities do you donate to?

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.

Advertising

How much does it cost to advertise?

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?

Generally speaking, aluminum bottles have a much smaller MOQ, but we don’t recommend that you order less than a pallet which is 1680 beverages. At such small quantity, the cost per beverage will be roughly $1.60 + shipping. We can theoretically manufacture as small as a 24 pack, but all the one-time manufacturing fees will ensure that the cost is roughly $350 + shipping.

Paper cartons have a much larger MOQ of 10k units, but they have the most ad space and start at $1.00 + shipping.

How long does it take to place an advertising order?

Aluminum Bottles-

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.

 

Boxed Water-

The boxed water supply chain was negatively effected by the pandemic. The current lead time for boxed water is 5 months. However, as of 4/26/2022 the supply chain issues look like they are being solved and we are hoping the lead time in the near future will be 100 days and eventually back to the normal 6 week lead time.

How does FreeWater compare to other advertising mediums?

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.

Distribution

How do I distribute FreeWater?

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 individuas 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.

What are the minimum requirements to be a distributor?

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.

Do distributers have to advertise?

No, but that is the fastest way to get started.

Other

Can I invest in FreeWater?

Yes, we are currently in our SEED round and are accepting investments as small as $10,000 and our valuation as of April 26, 2022 is $10,000,000.

Can I use FreeWater as a fundraising tool?

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.

Will you offer other free products in the future?

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.

When do you intend to go public?

Yes & No

There are many pros and cons to being a publicly traded company and we are still exploring all of our options.

 

We will 100% launch a new type of utility tokens called the FreeWater token.
