The Boxed Beverage Company, an Australia-based startup founded by two Adelaideans, has partnered with a global food and beverage packaging company Tetra Pak to unveil a water called Waterbox packaged in sustainable plant-based cartons.
Compared to traditional PET bottled water, Waterbox has eight times less climate impact. Consumers can also recycle Waterbox at drop-off locations, where they will be collected for conversion into sustainable building materials for homes and offices.
In addition, this alkaline water promotes a healthy lifestyle as it contains high levels of key minerals and a pH8 level.
Stefanie Mazzone, director at The Boxed Beverage Company, feels excited to be launching its first product, Waterbox.
“We have seen Aussie consumers seek more sustainable, on-the-go alternatives to traditionally packaged beverages, and Waterbox represents our first step in addressing this demand and empowering consumers to make a difference,” added Mazzone.
“Working with our partner Tetra Pak, we are also very proud to be able to source, process and package the product right here in Australia, further ensuring we are able to cater to Australians’ focus on health and sustainability.”
Waterbox has collaborated with a charity organisation Variety to fund a variety of services provided to underprivileged children.
Customers can purchase Waterbox 500ml in selected Foodlands, Romeo’s and IGA outlets in South Australia, Victoria, Western Australia, and New South Wales.
