Earlier this year, I reached out to JUST in hopes of creating some content to let the world know how much I appreciate their company. In addition to all the amazing things they do for our planet, JUST water gifted me a variety pack with four flavors (reg, lemon, blackberry, and cherry) and a six-pack of one-liter spring waters. I figured the least I could do to show my appreciation was share with you all just how much I love JUST!
Not only is JUST water sustainably sourced on the inside (shout out to my home state New York!), the colorful cartons are also plant-based and eco-friendly. These cute water containers are made of 71% renewable content and can be reused a dozen times! After using them for quite some time as water bottles, I reused a few of the containers in other ways to keep the vibe alive. Currently, I have one cut in half that I’m using as a planter until I find the perfect pot to replant sage and I keep a liter near my bed for those late night water chugs.
More inspiring than the work JUST puts in to make the world a cleaner place, is the story of how it got founded. At only 10 years old, Jaeden Smith created an eco-friendly idea while surfing, surrounded by plastic pollution. In addition to learning more about the company, the JUST website is a great resource to learn about plant based plastics, plastic waste, and how you can make the world a better place by switching the water you purchase!
“I want to make it easier [for people] to be part of the solution.”–Jaden Smith, JUST Co-Founder
I discovered JUST during quarantine when the Sheetz store near my house sold the brand for a short time. While looking for ways to reduce my waste, I was honestly surprised in a gas station convenience store to find a product that was not only a healthier option for my body but the planet as well. Of course, I brought home the three flavors they had immediately, cherry being my favorite, and I’ve been in love with the brand since! JUST not only helped me stay on top of drinking more water every day, they allowed me to stay true to my beliefs and put the planet before my own consumeristic needs.

Thank you JUST for all you do for the planet!
