Boxed Water is Better
Michigan company Boxed Water is Better recently launched their product in their home state, and has since made a splash around the country. While most Americans buy bottled water (which are made with PET, a material that does contain recycled content), only fourteen percent of those bottles find themselves being recycled. Boxed water is not only more efficient to transport (two pallets of boxed water is equal to five truckloads of leftover plastic bottles to transport), but cuts down on carbon dioxide, which is emitted when destroying plastic bottles. While Boxed Water Is Better is only available in Michigan, the company is planning to expand, and with it will come an annual donation of twenty percent of their profits to water programs worldwide.
