Introducing Organika's Water Refill Station

A Water Refill Station is now available at Organika

Organika encourages the community to ditch single-use plastic water bottles with the launch of Noosa’s first natural spring water refill station.

The Noosa community and visitors can now refill their reusable bottles with Mt Beerwah Natural Spring Water available on tap at Organika’s recently commissioned Water Station.

“Water is an absolute essential for overall health and well-being. Our search for the best water in Australia led us close to home, the Glass House Mountains. A natural wonder that boasts the purest water on earth.” explains Dan Gladki, owner and operator of Organika.

Speaking about the launch, Will Neill from Mt Beerwah Natural Spring Water said:

“We are delighted to deliver Noosa’s first natural spring water refill station to the team at Organika. We are proud to support a longstanding locally owned and run family business who share the same passion for environmental sustainability and community health and wellbeing as we do.”

“Providing the community with the ability to refill their bottles with quality, pure natural spring water sourced locally from the Glass House Mountains hinterland compliments Organika’s very impressive range of certified organic and sustainably sourced products.”

Filtered naturally through the earth, arising pure and pristine direct from the spring, Organika’s Water Station allows customers to refill with local spring water naturally containing essential minerals, electrolytes, and antioxidants. Ethically sourced, the pure spring water is chemical and additive-free.

For 70 cents per litre, customers can reuse and refill their own bottles at Organika’s Water Station or can choose to buy one of the reusable and recyclable bottles available in the store.

Program Manager of Plastic Free Noosa, Peita Otterbach explained:

“It is estimated close to a 3 million single-use plastic water bottles are sold in Noosa Shire every year, with over 80% destined for landfill or polluting our waterways and foreshore. Choosing to reuse and refusing to buy single-use plastic water bottles is the best long term solution.”

“Organika’s Water Station has the potential to prevent close to 10,000 600ml single-use water bottles from circulation in just one week, that’s 520,000 per year.”

“Organika is a Plastic Free Noosa Champion business who continue to expand on their environmentally sustainable operations - the Water Station is just one example of their impressive efforts.”

The Water Station is now one of four refilling stations available at Organika making it easier for the community to achieve or work towards a zero waste lifestyle by eradicating single-use plastics and packaging from their everyday lives. Customers can bring their own reusable containers and refill with:

  1. bulk raw ingredients and wholefoods
  2. chemical and toxic free cleaning solutions
  3. natural personal care products
  4. pure natural local spring water

Located at Shop 2/3 Gibson Road in Noosaville, Organika opened its doors fifteen years ago and was the first certified organic store on the Sunshine Coast. Organika continues to be the trusted one-stop-shop for fresh organic and local produce as well as ethically and fair-trade sourced, sustainable ingredients and products catering for all dietary requirements including vegan, dairy and gluten-free.

The range of products has expanded over the years to now include everything from bulk raw ingredients and unpacked whole foods, baby and mother care to pet supplies and personal care including an array of vitamins and supplements for every stage of life. A naturopath is also on hand daily to answer any questions and guide customers to achieve their ultimate health and well-being goals.

Organika also incorporates a cafe serving organic cold-pressed juices made daily, vegan and gluten-free in house-made food and treats plus a range of health tonics and healthy grab-and-go meals - a favourite for locals on the way to work and visitors walking to Noosa River only five minutes away.
