Water in aluminium bottles and cans to be served at Oscars
Open Water will partner with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to offer aluminium bottled and canned water in an effort to eliminate the use of plastic bottled water at the Oscars on March 12.
Through the collaboration, the Academy will move to a system of reuse and refill for water service.
Open Water, the sustainable water brand that pioneered the canned water category, was a natural partner for this initiative.
Co-founder, Jess Page, explains: “We started Open Water with the mission to stop the scourge of plastic water bottles from making their way into our oceans. We are thrilled that the Academy is using Hollywood’s biggest stage to make a statement on the importance of minimising plastic waste.”
Open Water will be available for working crew and served to ceremony guests.
“Open Water products have been valuable to the Academy in achieving our goal of a plastic-free production environment, while supporting our overall commitment to operating as a socially and environmentally responsible organisation,” said Academy Executive Vice President, Impact and Inclusion Jeanell English.
