Due to the lack of environmentally-friendly and sustainable options, it’s easy to just purchase water in single-use plastic bottles. It’s extremely convenient for people on-the-go, too. The sad truth is that these bottles take forever to break down, pile up in a landfill somewhere, and end up in the ocean.
If you’re keen on reducing your use of plastic however, there’s good news for you. Non-profit organization GenerationHope has come up with Hope in a Box, the country’s first ever drinking water packed in cartons.
The initiative, in partnership with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Tetra Pak, is an expansion of the product’s packaging portfolio and a re-affirmation of its plastic neutral. Containing the same purified drinking water from Hope in a Bottle, the carton used in Hope in a Box is made from sustainably-sourced and fully recyclable paperboard.
As per usual, 100% of the proceeds of Hope in a Box will go to building more public school classrooms all over the country.
As of writing, the water in a box only available in CBTL stores nationwide. Meanwhile, Hope in a Bottle is still available at 7-Eleven, Starbucks, in select groceries, and online.
