With wine in a box, it was only a matter of time before we saw water in a box. Boxed Water, located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has begun producing boxed water with 90% of the boxed water container being made from a renewable resource. The refillable boxes are shipped flat and are to be filled on an on-demand basis. Most bottled water companies ship their empty bottles to be filled, then ship them back for consumption.
Implications - Say goodbye to plastic water bottles, water cartons are the green way of the future. The cartons are easily recyclable and flatten to their original state after use, making them easy to break down. And if that wan't enough, the company intends to give back 20% of their profits to the conservation of water and trees.
