We’ve all heard about how wasteful and ridiculous bottled water is. Well, one company has come up with a well-designed and innovative alternative… water in a box!
We’re proud to say that Sweat is the first South Florida location to carry Boxed Water. It’s just $2 for a quart, the packages are far more eco-friendly than bottles, and the manufacturers even kick back profits to charities that conserve water and fight deforestation.
From the company:
About 76% of the Boxed Water container is made from a renewable resource, trees, that when harvested in a responsible, managed, and ethical way serve as an amazing renewable resource that benefits the environment even as it’s renewed. We ship our boxes flat to our filler which is significantly more efficient compared to shipping empty plastic or glass bottles to be filled. The flat, unfilled boxes we can fit on 2 pallets, or roughly 5% of a truckload, would require about 5 truckloads for empty plastic or glass bottles. Our cartons can also be broken down to their original flat state, and are recyclable in some areas. We’re also giving 20% of our profits back to the resources our product is composed of – water and trees.
So next time you’re here at Sweat for an in-store, pick up a box, hydrate yourself and feel good about it!
