Lately I’ve become a lot more conscious of the water bottles that I use. Because hydration is key before, during and after a workout I’m always bringing water with me everywhere I go. The one thing I’ve been doing a lot more this year is putting water in reusable containers or also using Boxed Water.
There are several reasons why I prefer Boxed Water to regular plastic bottles. The first is that Boxed water reduces the use of non-renewable resources, plastic waste and also carbon footprint (<0.055 vs 0.120 kg/ liter for PET). They also use paper from well-managed forests and ship their cartons flat to be filled afterwards so that they can reduce shipping waste and carbon footprint. What I also like are the creative ways they use to recycle and repurpose the boxes such as transforming them into building materials.
In addition to all of these environmental benefits, Boxed Water just has cool branding and a great motto: Waste Less, Do More and Live Well. Living well means not putting anything that could be toxic to your health in the water so the water is triple filtered for purity and 100% BPA and phthalate free.
Finally, for every photo of Boxed Water posted with the #ReTree hashtag, the company plants two trees.
A great alternative to those plastic water bottles!
Boxed Water is available for purchase at Loblaws and Sobeys across Canada.
