Republic Spring Water was born to bring sustainable change.
Republic is a better way to buy & drink spring water. Premium spring water stations in convenient locations.
Stainless steel storage tanks
All units are fitted with a stainless steel storage tank so at no time will the water be in contact with plastic, eliminating the risk of exposure to harmful toxins.
All natural water
Consistent consumption of chlorinated water is a health risk so our water is a natural, healthier alternative that is void of any toxic anomalies.
The Spring Water Sourced from natural Western Australian springs, Republic Spring Water guarantees pure and local spring water. When you buy Republic, you’re only paying for the spring water, so the cost of the plastic bottle is gone.
We need water to live but buying water doesn’t have to be damaging to the environment. Republic Spring Water provides you with the opportunity to protect the world we live in by saying no to plastic bottles and no to polluting the planet.
Adam Arkell, Founder of The Republic Spring Water, he has started a crowdfunding campaign on gofundme with a goal of raising $35k. He says “After walking into a store and seeing a bottle of water priced at $3.50, it had to be asked, what are we going to do to fix this? How can water cost more than petrol?” Looking into this further I found more and more reasons why this problem needed to be addressed.”
Plastic bottles are not only polluting our planet and destroying natural habitats, they are also the source of many health related issues occurring in our general population. We are clearly trying to do the right thing in consuming water, but is it really good for us when it comes from a plastic bottle? And what is it doing to our planet?
As he thought about it further, he found more and more reasons as to why the problem needed to be addressed. There were the photos he’d seen of how the world was being destroyed by the pollution caused by plastic bottles, and the research he’d read about the health issues associated with drinking tap water. The equation just didn’t add up…
Pay big money to protect your health, but pollute the planet in the process. Or, save money, protect the planet, but damage your health. The current market was a lose/lose…
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
“Twice the size of the continental United States”
Adam decided he’d heard enough and he needed to take action. An engineer by profession, Adam was ready to take a new path with a vision to make a significant difference to the health quality of both people and the planet.
Adam has started bringing his idea to life and has engaged with Red Meets Blue to turn that idea into a brand. For Adam, it’s about doing something great in the world. The company is starting in Perth with 10 machines, but he doesn’t want to put limits on what it can become. Launching the brand is a big investment for Adam and although it is in no way a motivation, finances must be considered. For Adam, the target isn’t wealth and riches; it’s simply to be able to live comfortably with the opportunity to play golf on a regular basis, whilst making a positive impact on the world around him.
To build a sustainable, honest, and conscious spring water brand that brings positive change to the bottled water industry.
To provide people with a high quality spring water product that is more economical, environmentally friendly, and healthy than the rest of the market.
A few things they need to get straight…
We’re a spring water brand not a water fill station
We may be cheaper but our water is premium rather than discounted
When you buy bottled water, the plastic is what you’re paying for. We remove that expense
We don’t believe in ripping you off so we charge you the fair price
We make it affordable to be ethical
The Product - A quality Australian spring water product that looks and tastes great without the cost on your wallet, your health, or the environment.
The Movement- A community of passionate and likeminded people who want to make a positive difference in the world and agree that enough is enough when it comes to bottled water.
The Impact - We need water to live but buying water doesn’t have to be damaging to the environment. We offer the opportunity to protect the world we live in.
Republic Spring Water Functions
The vending machine facilitates the sale of spring water and serves as somewhat of a physical hub for their brand. They need the machine to offer:
Initially, they are planning to place 10 machines in 10 locations. They’re yet to approach the locations, which is something they need to do, but these locations should have high-traffic and a continuous flow of people. Each machine would carry with it a rental fee, whether that is a percentage of profit or a set fee and it’s worth noting that for Adam, it will take 27 pushes of the button on each machine per day to pay off everything in one year.
The bottles, they offer going to be a vital part of the ability to deliver the product. The bottles need to offer value to the customer and in order to achieve this, they must be attractive, practical, durable, and both health and environmentally conscious.
- Fashionable design
- Easy to hold
- Easy to place in a handbag
- BPA free
He is unable to offer a direct reward for donations made to this cause and he apologized. However, he is going to offer a percentage of the donations made to ocean conservation when money is received. Following that he will donate the remaining percentage of the donation to ocean conservation when a clear profit is being made from this venture, this will be his repayment for what everyone has done for this project.
For a $50 and up donation, he will donate 10% to ocean conservation.
For a $20 - $50 donation, he will donate 7.5% to ocean conservation.
For a $5 - $20 donation, he will donate 5% to ocean conservation.
