ORLANDO, Fla. – September 14, 2010 – Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS Company, LLC), operator of the world's first pallet rental service providing lightweight all-plastic pallets with embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, announced today that Nirvana will begin shipping its premium natural spring water products throughout North America on iGPS' innovative platform, commencing immediately. Nirvana bottles water exclusively from its proprietary spring located on 2,000 acres of untouched wilderness in New York's Adirondack Mountains.
"Our vision at Nirvana is to be the most environmentally conscious bottled water brand in the world, and iGPS helps us to achieve this goal," said Mo Rafizadeh, Nirvana's Vice President. "By utilizing iGPS' lightweight all-plastic pallets, we not only reduce our environmental footprint dramatically, but also gain the benefits of a higher quality platform and significant operational savings versus pallets made of wood."
"Nirvana is a model of environmental consciousness and we are delighted to welcome this outstanding company to the iGPS family," said Bob Moore, Chairman and CEO of iGPS. "iGPS shares Nirvana's goal of reducing harmful carbon emissions, which makes our partnership all the more gratifying."
In just four years of operation, iGPS has revolutionized the way goods are being shipped throughout the North American supply chain, providing both shippers and receivers with operational savings that are game-changing. Its 100 percent recyclable all-plastic pallets are 30 percent lighter than wood pallets, cost less to transport and are vastly better for the environment. Unlike wood platforms, iGPS pallets do not shrink, warp or contain protruding nails and splinters that can compromise products, injure workers or damage equipment. In addition, iGPS pallets do not absorb fluids that can cross-contaminate food and, because they cannot harbor wood-boring insects, never require treatment with toxic pesticides or fungicides. Thanks to embedded RFID tags, shippers and receivers can track shipments throughout the supply chain.

Some see Bottled water, while we see what is arguably the purest spring water in the world. Nestled amidst 2,000 acres of untouched wilderness in the majestic Adirondack Mountains is the source that provides Nirvana Natural Spring Water. Unlike other bottled water companies, not even a single drop of our water comes from any outside source, attesting to our commitment to the most natural spring water.
Our company and our water reflect a vision in being the most environmentally conscious bottled water brand in the world. Our facilities are not represented by warehouses, but instead by nature preserves. Created with much less plastic, our new family of eco-friendly bottles have been designed specifically with a new manufacturing process which reduces our carbon footprint and overall environmental impact. These gorgeous, light weight bottles bring a definitive distinction between Nirvana and competing bottled water brands. The vision of our new brand and our commitment to success is unmatched in the industry.
Our company can say with confidence, that we are the greenest amongst all other bottled water companies. Located in the middle of 2,000 preserved acres of untouched wilderness at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in New York, Nirvana Natural Spring water is not tankered to and from different facilities, nor is it mechanically extracted from the ground or any other source. Nirvana's pristine spring water comes to the surface by its own natural force at 42 degrees all year round, which is an amazing phenomenon in itself. No other bottled water source in North America can reproduce our elements, resources, mindset, or commitment to preserving the natural source of our water. All it takes is just one taste of Nirvana Spring Water for one to realize that there's no need to go to the mid-pacific region or the Alps in Europe for the best tasting water – it's been here all along.
