Roving Reporter | "Boxed Water is Better" | Shared by Alicia

"This is something pretty neat, I wanted to share with the Network. While attending a conference in Austin, I was introduced to this vintage idea re-imagined...boxed liquid! What a marvel idea...a milk carton for water! It seems so simple, yet brilliant!

The "Boxed Water is Better, LLC" (based in Grand Rapids, MI) box (according to it's label) is "76%...composed of a renewable resource, trees. ...The trees used to make this box come certified, well managed forests. In these forests, trees constantly grow replacing the ones harvested while removing CO2 from the atmosphere." (This being explained is a sustainable practice, of course, one that is promoted by the likes of the FSC aka Forest Stewardship Council.) "We ship our boxes flat to our filler which is significantly more efficient compared to shipping empty plastic or glass bottles to be filled." This container is also BPA free, which especially if you have children, you know is something folks are steadily growing concerned about being in their plastic containers.

While the plastic turn top makes the carton reusable in the short term, I would challenge the company to find a completely plastic-free way to make the carton reusable throughout, say, a day...BUT you can order it with or without what they call the "droplet."

Pretty cool, huh...and refreshing!"
