It’s called Boxed Water. Boxed Water is in part a sustainable water company, part art project, and part philanthropic project. This innovative and creative concept came from a simple idea, bottled water brand that would be kinder to the environment while also giving back. Not only is this product aesthetically appealing with its fabulous packaging; 76% of each box is made from a renewable resource, trees. If all that wasn’t enough, the company donates 10% of their profit to world water relief foundations, and another 10% to reforestation foundations.
The idea for this milk carton style water “bottle” was born in April of 2008 and was on shelves for the first time in 2009 in the company’s hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since then, Boxed Water has been growing and now can be found in over 150 stores or restaurants in California alone.
We feel good knowing that when we drink their water “bottle,” we are also helping to plant trees and protecting our forests one sip at a time. Sounds like a great new habit for us!
