Boxed Water Is Better® Wins Good Housekeeping 2021 Sustainability Award
(PRNewswire) — Boxed Water Is Better® – the most renewable packaged water in the water aisle – is thrilled to announce that Boxed Water™ has been selected as the winner in the Good Housekeeping 2021 Sustainable Innovation Awards.
“We are honored to receive this acknowledgement,” said Daryn Kuipers, CEO of Boxed Water Is Better®. “We shocked the packaged water category more than a decade ago with a clear mission to serve as a sustainable option to single-use plastic bottles, and we have continued to innovate ever since.”
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 their game again with the introduction of their plant-based cap made from tree pulp wastes of sustainably harvested pines. Every Boxed Water™ carton offers a similar plant-based design, created out of paper sourced from trees in well managed forests.
The superiority of Boxed Water™ is not just speculation. The brand engaged in a robust, 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% lower impact on our ozone. As well – despite decades of nationwide recycling initiatives – only 25% of the 42.6 billon plastic bottles of water sold in the U.S. each year are actually recycled. Boxed Water™ is also better for the planet when compared to aluminum canned water too. The full assessment report can be found at boxedwaterisbetter.com
“We have a plastic addiction problem,” added Kuipers. “Americans are the largest consumers of single-use plastic per capita, and our country has one of the lowest plastic recycling percentages. Here at Boxed Water, we are targeting industries where packaged water is unavoidable – but our word to consumers is to use refillable bottles as much as possible and drink tap water when it’s safe to drink.”
