Plant It Water is one of the first companies in the US to offer natural spring water in a recyclable carton, made by Tetra Pak. Unlike plastic water bottles, which are made from petroleum-based plastics and 0% renewable materials, the Plant It Water packaging is an innovative design that uses largely renewable materials from sources such as plant fibres.
Tetra Pak, considered one of the most sustainable liquid food packages on the market, won the presidential medal for sustainable development in 1996 by then vice president Al Gore.
Plant It Water CEO, Jane Goldberg, said: “Today, only about 20% of plastic water bottles are being recycled, which is alarming when you consider over 35 billion plastic bottles of water are sold in the US each year. By putting our spring water in a Tetra Pak carton, we offer a ‘greener’ alternative without compromising portability, convenience and delicious taste.”
