About this event

Join us for an inspiring fireside chat with Alexander and Elodie, co-founder of Sai Yok Springs. Discover the remarkable journey of Thailand's first closed-loop, locally-sourced premium mineral water brand. Explore their commitment to sustainability, local impact, and delicious mineral water that's good for the planet and the community. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from a passionate advocate for eco-friendly business practices. 

The spring is located in a small village, an hour north of Kanchanaburi, between Sai Yok and Erawan national parks, and follows sustainable practices that include a closed-loop bottle system. That means they reuse the same bottles over and over – up to 200 times – in order to conserve natural resources and divert waste from landfills. After use, they collect the bottles from their clients and send them back to the production facility, where they are sanitised, thoroughly cleaned and refilled again. They have their own logistics system, so every time they deliver crates of full bottles to clients, they also collect the empty ones to send back to the production facility.
