Sparkling, Ontario spring water with Newfoundland sea salt.
Eco-friendly alternative to imported premium bottled water. Similar taste profile and mouthfeel to San Pellegrino.
3MG NFLD SEA SALT PER L CO2
lark exclusively uses water sourced from an Ontario spring that is tested and government regulated. Using a local water source means a lower carbon footprint due to minimal transport distance. Water is sourced and transported in stainless steel containers, not plastic water totes, and kept in stainless steel reservoirs until bottling to eliminate any possible transmission of microplastics.
Their beverages have the stature, taste and mouthfeel of imported premium waters, and alt milk, yet are free of the endless waste that has negatively impacted the planet for decades.
lark’s team started with bottled water, as it is one of the worst offenders from a single-use packaging perspective. We acknowledge that tap water is most eco, but many choose spring water for health reasons or sparkling and flavoured waters for experience and mouthfeel.
lark attempts to balance utility and aesthetics in all that we do. Crates are black because they are made of 100% recycled plastic. Light and custom colours have to be made of virgin plastic and that was not acceptable to us. These German designed, stackable crates last 30+ years, keeping 100,000s of single-use boxes out of the landfill and recycling system.
lark takes a simple and balanced approach to wellness using only real florals and herbs, with minimal use of salt and sugars. Their beverages are good for you and the planet, without compromise to taste or experience.

Minimal labels, minimal waste
Our (as small as possible) labels are made of 100% recycled material and use non-toxic adhesive. You’re welcome. #closedloop
Reusable clear glass flip-top bottles
Most green glass goes to the landfill and does not get recycled. That’s why lark uses clear bottles indefinitely/until they are damaged, then recycled.
Our sterilization processes
Bottles and crates are rinsed then sterilized. lark uses high-efficiency washers with heat boosters that sterilize our packs at a very high temperature (180F/82C). In addition to using high heat, they use Bioxy Enviro, a broad spectrum disinfectant that has set a new standard as the first eco-safe bactericide, virucide, and fungicide.
It is safe for food processing equipment and for sanitizing water systems. We also use Bioxy Enviro on all our bottling, water storage, and mixing equipment.
The lark team collaborates with various consultants including; mixologists, brewmasters, holistic chefs, chemical engineers, NSF food scientists, and fabricators from micro and mass brands. They are currently collaborating with wellness experts, bakers, and chefs on new product development.
The lark facility was set up from ground zero, because of its unique needs - water and packaging storage, sterilization, brewing, and bottling. Over 80% of our equipment is reclaimed or refurbished.
