Choose Plastic Free Noosa water

How do we break the cycle of reaching for a plastic bottle of water to quench our thirst or to make a healthy drink choice? Don’t despair – help is at hand thanks to the team at Plastic Free Noosa, an initiative of Tourism Noosa and Noosa Council. The team has been working closely with local food outlets to eliminate single use plastics such as straws, takeaway food containers and cutlery, plastic bags and you guessed it – bottled water.

Noosa is leading the charge to be Australia’s first Plastic Free community

With the mission of replacing single-use plastic water bottles, Plastic Free Noosa in partnership with Tourism Noosa and Bluesky Beverages have designed a NOOSA collection of aluminium water bottles. These bespoke Noosa aluminium bottles of water that are not only a smarter choice for the environment but each carton of still water comes as a collection of four bottles that promote the region with a QR Code linking to the Visit Noosa website. There is even a sparkling option for restaurants.

The bottles

The bottles are lightweight, reusable and dishwasher safe, allowing them to be refilled at home or at any of the 13 Unitywater refill stations in the region. And let's be honest, they look too good not to re-use!!

You can claim a 10-cent refund at participating depots and outlets, just like any other canned beverages.

The bottles are Australian-made and produced in partnership with Australian-owned Bluesky Beverages who are currently on a mission to sell one million bottles (thereby removing one million plastic bottles) in its first two years.
