Danone did not give details about the environmental impact of the process, but said on Tuesday ocean water was a renewable source and that Kona Deep sources it in a “responsible and sustainable manner.”
Not sure this bit works though:
After being pumped through a pipe that reaches 3,000 feet below the ocean’s surface, Kona Deep desalinates the water using reverse osmosis, and bottles it.
The two-year-old company says its water has a unique blend of naturally occurring electrolytes and minerals that make it extra-hydrating.
Desalination is the removal of those minerals and electrolytes.
