PRODUCT: Boxed Water Is Better

If your 2015 goals include drinking more water, our first tip would be to purchase a refillable water bottle. You’ll save money and save the environment in the process. Millions of plastic bottles go into U.S. landfills each year.

Second choice: Boxed Water, an alternative to bottled water that decreases dependence on non-renewable resources, reduces waste and decreases the carbon footprint. The company fills milk carton-type boxes instead of plastic or glass bottles.

The Boxed Water container is far more sustainable than plastic bottled water. About 76% of the box is from a renewable resource, trees. The trees used to make the boxes come from certified, well managed forests. These forests remain healthy and stable through ongoing replanting while helping to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

The cardboard boxes are easily recyclable, and are shipped flat to the filling plant, which is significantly more fuel-efficient compared to shipping empty plastic or glass bottles.


The company uses local water sources—no shipping of water cross-country or across the seas, with a big carbon footprint. The water is purified via reverse osmosis and carbon filtering.

The rectangular shape reduces shipping waste and carbon footprint versus round bottles.

Finally, the company has partnered with 1% For The Planet to help with world water relief, reforestation, and environmental protection projects to help enable a positive impact on humanitarian and environmental efforts. That’s water for thought in 2015!

Boxed Water is currently available in more than 6,000 stores in the U.S. with growing distribution in Canada and Mexico. For more information visit
