Vancouver, British Columbia — August 27, 2020 — Vegaste Technologies Corp. (the “Company” or “Vegaste”) (CSE: VEGA, Frankfurt: WNT1), is pleased to announce that the Company has launched its own PlantX-branded Canadian glacial water having already sold an aggregate of 27,500 litres of bottled, PlantX-branded glacial water to San Diego, California-based retailer, Liv Marketplace, for a gross amount of $43,632 CDN in the first month of sales.
Vegaste’s PlantX platform, the digital face of the plant-based community and the one-stop-shop for everything plant-based, is expanding to include one of the world’s most important resources: water. In addition to water being essential to human survival, drinking enough water throughout the day is paramount to health and wellness, which aligns with the Company’s mission. After the Flint water crisis in the State of Michigan, the Company believes that having access to clean, natural water will become increasingly important for consumers across North America.
The Company’s PlantX-branded water adds to the growing category verticals on its digital platform www.PlantX.com, which already includes plant-based recipes, restaurant resources, a regularly updated blog, a community forum, indoor plant delivery, groceries, and meals curated by top chefs and nutritionists. This important commodity will bring attention to the Company’s e-commerce platform. PlantX-branded water is sourced from Canadian glaciers, where the geography, climate, and geology makes them a unique and pristine source of water, and bottled with a low carbon footprint in mind.
This initial sale of PlantX-branded glacial water is only the beginning of the Company’s plans to expand the sale of its water throughout the continent. The Company plans to also bottle PlantX glacial water in sports bottles which will include the use of a new logo that will be distinct and unique, drawing eyes in retail locations to generate even more revenue.
“We are very excited to have the best commodities including our own water which is such an important part of our daily lives,” said Sean Dollinger, PlantX founder. “The feedback on the quality of the water has been amazing.”
Since its inception in October, 2019, the Company’s PlantX platform has quickly emerged as an industry leader. As the fledgling plant-based sector continues its explosive growth, the Company will be at the forefront by continually evolving and delivering new ways to expand PlantX. With its forward-looking, cutting edge approach, the Company will continue to secure significant partnerships across North America while exploring innovative ways to expand both its e-commerce capabilities and digital resources to help educate, inspire, and uplift consumers.

As the digital face of the plant-based community, Vegaste’s PlantX platform is the one-stop-shop for everything plant-based.
