I just got back from a brutally hot walk and immediately opened a box of water. Box? Yes! This water comes to us in a carton, not a plastic bottle. What better day to write about Boxed Water is Better, which cares about sustainability, than Earth Day?
I don’t love plastic thanks to the chemicals in them, especially when you leave a bottle in the car. Bisphenol A. known as BPA, is a chemical that is known as an endocrine disruptor, its released from plastic bottles. Higher levels of BPA are released when the bottle is hot!
Bottled water companies increasingly use BPA-free plastic, but laced into plastic bottles are other chemicals that can seep out if bottles are exposed to heat or sit around for a long time. Some of these chemicals are possible endocrine disruptors. No one knows for sure what the health outcomes are. Do you really want your body to undergo that experiment? (source)
Boxed Water is Better houses their pure water in a container that contains zero BPA and is made from 74% paper.
I like this fact:
Our boxes are shipped flat to our local filling locations. Flat boxes occupy much less space than fully-formed plastic bottles. By shipping flat boxes to the source, we use 1 truck for every 26 trucks that many plastic bottle companies use. Reducing our carbon footprint.
Boxed Water is Better uses an 8-step water purification process which remove any impurities. The containers are 100% recyclable.
The water has a totally pure taste and I will always reach for a container that is free of toxins and can be recycled over something plastic and toxic! You should check out all the details about this company by going here!
Happy Earth Day!
