Boxed Water Is Better

While doing my regular weekly grocery shopping, i came across a display of this boxed water.  The treehugger in me got instantly excited so i purchased a case.

I got home and almost immediatly went for the water.  It tastes great because you dont taste the plastic, and as an added bonus, it makes you feel like a kid again drinking out of those tiny carboard boxes.

Some of the environmental benefits include:

  • 76% of the box is composed of resources, trees. Making it one of the most sustainable beverage packages available.
  • The trees used to make the box come from certified, well managed forests. In these forests, trees constantly grow replacing the ones harvesting removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
  • They ship their boxes flat to their filler which is significantly more efficient compared to shipping empty plastic bottles to be filled.
  • Their boxes are recyclable and can be easily flattened to their original state taking up less space.

We were able to find this product at our local Vons / Safeway.  If you don’t have one you can visit www.boxedwater.com to find out where to get yours locally.
