Oakville development wants to be plastic water bottle-free

Ivy Rouge, North Oakville’s newest development by Rosehaven Homes and Starlane Homes, is one of the first communities in Canada to offer a water bottle-free living experience, according to its parent company.

Ivy Rouge will have a BWT Woda-Pure water filtration system in every home. The built-in system replaces the need for plastic bottled water with zero-waste, reusable, refillable alternatives.

The BWT Woda-Pure is an in-line, under-sink alternative to traditional faucet-mounted water filtration systems.

Ivy Rouge is a collection of towns and singles located at Sixth Line and Burnhamthorpe Road.
