Boxed Water

Whilst searching the net (for pictures of turbine blades, can you tell I’m a materials scientist? :), I came across this ridiculous piece of Greenwash. Yes, these people are seriously trying to sell their water as environmentally friendly because it comes in cartons rather than those nasty plastic bottles. Conveniently ignoring the fact that:

  • The cartons come from a plant in Vancouver
  • The water (tap water!) is put in at a plant in Minnesota
  • The boxed water is then sold in Michigan …
  • … where the cartons aren’t even recyclable! (Though plastic bottles are)
