Ciao Water using its patented Reverte is the first of its kind to use oxobiodegradeable alternative to bottling. Its a great way of eliminating plastic waste that builds up each year. Although it is still a waste product, the product itself degrades right back into the earth. It takes 7 years for the bottle to be completely disintegrated and two to start the deteriorating process. Help Renew the earth one step at a time. If interested in the product contact me and we can talk about the details.
