Who we are

We are TouCan: a UK-based provider of canned spring water.

 

We’re on a mission to replace single-use, plastic water bottles with a product that creates a positive impact on our environment. Thanks to our unique and exclusive partnership in Brazil, we are able to protect 1 square foot of endangered Amazonian land on the perimeter of the rainforest (known as the green wall). By protecting this area, we are able to create a boundary of land that stops deforestation from digging deeper into the rainforest.

 

We also work with our water supplier to ensure a sustainable and self-preserving water source, where we ensure rain water replaces more than we are taking for our cans.

Toucan's top tips for environmentally responsible water consumption

Choose Refillable Containers

Opt for refillable water bottles instead of single-use plastic bottles

Invest in a Water Filter

Instead of buying bottled water, consider investing in a water filter for your home

Conserve Water

Be mindful of water usage in everyday activities. Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth!

Our Story

"I’ve been mesmerised by the rainforest ever since I went on a family trip to Sri Lanka at the age of nine. As an adult, I’ve been fortunate to explore several rainforests and jungles: from the volcanic rainforest of Indonesia to the mountain-covered jungles of Laos. My passion lies in preserving and protecting the rainforest habitat." - Louis (Co-founder)

"It’s long been a passion of mine to reduce single-use plastic water bottles and the catastrophic amount of landfill waste they generate. As co-founder of TouCan, I’m leveraging my experience of the packaging industry to confront this challenge head on – by launching an easily recyclable alternative that positively impacts our environment." - Vitaliy (Co-founder)

After a joint trip to the Southern Japanese temperate rainforest in 2022, we decided to pool our joint passion and team up to launch TouCan
