Truman’s Starter Kit starts at $15.00 what could be better. Because you add water at home, the bottles ship empty, dramatically reducing the company’s carbon footprint compared to competitors who ship a solution that is 98% water from factories to distributors to retailers and, ultimately, to homes.
