What’s inside is key! The Grand Rapids Michigan based company came about the idea of Boxed Water while grabbing lunch at their favorite little lunch spot. The idea was to create a new branding of carbon filtered water that wasn’t in a bottle and also kinder on the environment, with a stellar name that people could remember
By succeeding with this crafty idea and unveiling it’s name “Boxed Water Is Better”, and packaging to perfection, who wouldn’t want to purchase a box to quench your thirst. With 76% of Boxed Water containers made from a renewable resource their able to produce a product that’s responsible, ethical, and renewed.
They are also giving 20% of their profits back to resources their product was composed of, being water and trees. Well I’m definitely hoping that Seattle starts to carry this ever so trendy, yet well thought out carton of water. http://boxedwaterisbetter.com/index.html
Now for those of you who prefer tap water because it is better, here’s an option for you. We all know that bottled water is a drain on the environment and the U.S. public go through 50 Billion water bottle a year, and most of the plastic bottles aren’t even recyclable people. Aquaovo has come up with a chemical free, lead free glazing, porcelain water filter designed with a very sleek and suave approach.
The stylish Ovorpur uses a filtration cartridge that lasts up to 4 months and can filter an average of 2000 liters of water within that 4 month time period. The Ovorpur retails for $895.00 at http://www.aquaovo.com/IndexE.htma bit much on the pocket book, but just look at it!
And for those of you who like to take an approach like I do, you can get a guzzler made of glass and bamboo. The Bamboo Bottle Company brings us a refillable bottle protected by a sheath of renewable bamboo. Listen, when the scare of Bisphenol-A(BPA) crept up in our drinking bottles people began to freak out everywhere and ditch their Nalgene bottles as fast as you can say Bisphenol-A Laden Polycarbonate. Others opted for the Sigg’s aluminum alternative, only to find out in August of 2008 that it too had been lined with BPA film.
So once Bamboo Bottle Co. came up with a glass insert (with 60% recycled content) and then to insulate the contents of the bottle to protect it from future accidental drops, in a cylinder made of Phyllostachys Pubescens Bamboo (this species of bamboo grows 90 feet or 27+ metres in 9 months) this was fantastic new’s.
The sealing lid is dishwasher safe, FDA food grade, BPA free plastic. You can find this design and eco-friendly, BPA free item directly at http://www.bamboobottleco.com/ for only $25.00, what a bargain….I’ll take two please!
