Of the many sources on earth, glacial water is one of the purest varieties of this essential substance. Glaciers are formed over many years, as snow falls and becomes compacted, melts, and reforms. They are a force that shapes the very mountains in which they often reside, responsible for awesome features of the planet, such as the Great lakes in North America. But they are not static, unchanging features in and of themselves. During the year, they undergo melt events in the heat of the summer months, which produce streams. Ice Age captures the purity of this ancient water as it leaves the glacier. Bottling the water from Alpine Creek, a feeder stream for the Toba Inlet in British Columbia, they bring the world the natural purity and healthful mineral content of glacial water. But they also take great pains to practice responsible conservation. Their source in no way harms the natural balance of the glacial environment. Rather, they capture a small amount of water, allowing the regional water table to maintain a beneficial balance.
