Boxed Water Is Better® wins the Good Housekeeping 2021 Sustainability Award
Boxed Water’s™ product packaging, which is 92% plant-based, is the highest rate achieved in the industry to date. Last year, Boxed Water™ upped its game even further with the introduction of its plant-based plug made from sustainably harvested pine tree pulp waste. Each Boxed Water™ carton offers a similar plant-based design, created using paper sourced from trees in well-managed forests.
The superiority of Boxed Water™ is not just speculation. The brand committed to a solid, independent Life cycle assessment, which demonstrated that compared to PET plastic bottles, Boxed Water™ cartons have a 36% lower carbon footprint (that’s global warming), 43% less fossil fuel use and 95% less impact on our ozone. Additionally, despite decades of nationwide recycling initiatives, only 25% of the 42.6 billion plastic water bottles sold in the United States each year are actually recycled. Boxed Water™ is also better for the planet compared to aluminum canned water. The full assessment report is available at boxedwaterisbetter.com
“We have a plastic addiction problem,” Kuipers added. “Americans are the highest consumers of single-use plastic per capita, and our country has one of the lowest plastic recycling percentages. At Boxed Water, we target industries where packaged water is unavoidable – but our word to consumers is to use refillable bottles. bottle as much as possible and drink tap water when it’s safe to drink.”
