There came a point in time when we all realized that plastic is bad. In a terrifying article by National Geographic last June, they declared that 40% of plastic is used only once and is killing millions of marine animals each year. Their brilliant cover featuring a bag that looked like an iceberg was hard to ignore. Now, plenty of people live zero waste lifestyles, while even more refuse single-use bottles and opt to bring tumblers around.
But what if I told you that there’s a pack of water you can buy that’s responsibly sourced and recyclable? Yes, it’s possible and Tetra Pak has made it a reality with their new drinking water.
Tetra Pak has partnered with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to only use paperboard sourced from FSC-certified forests. The FSC makes sure that its forests shelter wildlife, maintain its ecological function, and respect indigenous people and local communities. This is especially important when you consider that we depend on forests to give us clean water, fresh air, medicine, wood, and paper products.
A Tetra Pak carton is a win-win for everyone since it’s renewable, responsibly-sourced, recyclable, and longer-lasting. And you have to admit that the cartons are designed well and look cool!
When you drink from these, you’re helping look after the planet’s resources and future generations of trees and people. You’re picking a pack that grows back!
