Our commitment to the environment

The Yolngu people have been the custodians of our land in East Arnhem Land for countless generations. Our country is sacred and our connection to it is fundamental to our culture.

So, from the beginning of our plans for Knowledge Water, we have been focussed on how to keep our environmental impact to a minimum.

Pristine water in a cleaner package

Our packaging will use 100% recycled plastic and we also plan to establish a local recycling program for the East Arnhem Land region. This program will generate more Yolngu employment while keeping our country and our waterways cleaner.

We are also investigating a paper based carton with a plant based plastic lid as an alternative to the traditional plastic bottle. We will be taking the same green approach to our entire operation.

The waste water from the factory will first help cool our building and then water a banana crop.

Our bottling plant and office will be powered 100% by solar energy and battery storage. This clean power will also be used to support our community and our school house.

Watch the Knowledge Water Story

In our culture, water, or ‘gapu’, represents the knowledge of the Yolngu people. And now we want to share that knowledge with you.
