In addition to plain spring water, Just Water also offers infused flavors like lemon, tangerine, and apple cinnamon.

Everyone deserves access to quality water. Thanks for the leading the charge, @officialjaden, and for sharing your passion for the environment with us today at Apple Park. Your enthusiasm is contagious! 🌎 pic.twitter.com/2juv8zxMWT
