\"We are now distributing in the greater Yellowstone area and are well received.
According to the Billings Gazette, part of the park\'s sales flow forever to Yellowstone, a non-profit organization that raises funds to help fund park projects.
Ecological thinking the aluminum bottle in Philipsburg is suitable for the ecology of Xanterra
Friendly attitude of Yellowstone.
In 2016, the company stopped selling water from plastic bottles for environmental reasons.
According to Earth Day.
Org, sells about 1 million plastic bottles per minute, of which only 23% are recycled in the United States.
Scientists have just begun to document the wide distribution of degraded plastics in the oceans and other waters.
The harm that this tiny particle may cause to the environment has not yet been fully understood.
With this in mind, Xanterra wants to reduce the contribution of plastics to the environment.
According to an article by Jennifer White, Marta enkbach, the former head of beverage and bar operations at Yellowstone National Park Inn/Xanterra, marketed this to Smith.
Dylan Hoffman, director of sustainability at Xanterra, said the company estimated that the change would eliminate about 250,000 plastic bottles from Yellowstone National Park every year.
He added that while recycling plastics can be difficult and expensive, aluminum recycling is widely accepted by the public.
\"This is a big part of the reason why we are on our way,\" Hoffman said . \".
\"The recovery rate of aluminum is much higher.
\"Everyone who knows about the plastic problem is working on it,\" Smith agreed . \".
Built in the old mining town of the 1990 s, Phillips Fort water plant bottles of water under the name of silver spray, Silver Mist and Moon Valley.
The facility\'s bottled water comes from 11 springs that gushed from nearby mountains at a rate of 300 gallons per minute.
The plant was closed in 2004 and the facilities were idle until the brewing company began looking for room for expansion.
Founded in 2012, the brewery is located in the center of the Sayrs bank building and was built in 1888.
In 2014, Smith and his wife Cathy purchased the old bottling plant, including the property and construction of the first Philipsburg brewery built in 1875, for business expansion.
According to its website, the business expanded to the new building in 2015 to provide a second taproom, patio, outdoor kitchen, Secret Garden, concert venue with capacity of the downtown Brewery
Last fall, Smith said, the construction, bottling plant and water purification system invested $175,000.
After collecting in the water tank, the water is filtered and water treatment is carried out to meet the purity standard of the national drinking water.
Then, the logo was designed for the new water bottle made in Colorado gold.
Smith pointed out that each shipment shipped out about 126,000 bottles in the north, requiring a lot of warehouse space to be stored.
\"It\'s really important for us,\" Smith said . \" He specifically took into account that the company did not promote its water or seek a contract.
In Misura, the water company sold the bottle to the jam gift company with a custom label.
Logjam owns entertainment venues such as Top Hat, Wilma and Kettlehouse amphitheater in misura and is building a new music venue in Bozeman.
Hoffman said the initial sale of bottled water in the park was slow before the label was redesigned so buyers understood it was water.
\"Now, it has a Yellowstone National Park brand that is almost commemorative,\" he said . \".
