We are using our profits to fund our homeland school so we can continue to teach our children in a safe environment on our land.

We are also helping to train Yolngu people as teachers which is the key to keeping our culture strong for generations to come.

Our water

Knowledge Water is sustainably sourced from a rainforest spring in the heart of our homeland community at Mandjawuy in East Arnhem Land. Every year more than 1420mm of monsoon rain replenishes the spring, producing more water than we will ever use.

Our water is soft, sweet and so pure that we can package it in its natural form.

Treading a little lighter

In keeping with our deep connection to our land, our pack is made using paperboard from FSC certified renewable sources (plus a small amount of plant-based plastic) and has one of the lowest lifecycle carbon footprints of all major packaging formats. It is also recyclable, reusable and BPA free.
