About Us

Boxed Water is a sustainable water company that is changing the way water is sold, shipped and consumed. We aim to provide consumers a better option when purchasing water, while still enjoying the convenience of grab-and-go.

Each carton is recyclable, 100% BPA free, and made using paper from well-managed forests.

We’re sensibly sourced and purposely purified near end consumption to reduce our transportation carbon footprint.

And as a member of 1% for the Planet, at least one percent of our annual sales support reforestation through partnership with The National Forest Foundation (NFF). Plus we’re committing to plant one million trees by 2020.

We’re excited to have you say hello to BETTER.



Our proprietary multi-step purification and quality assurance process delivers pure hydration, free of any contaminants or things you don’t need. Our water is refreshing and absolutely pure.



Our box is a sustainable option. 74% of it is paper made from trees, a renewable resource. Those trees come from well managed forests where new trees are continuously planted to replace the ones used and they also remove CO2 from the atmosphere.



The way we ship our boxes helps minimize our carbon footprint. They ship flat to our filler which is more efficient compared to shipping empty plastic or glass bottles to be filled.



Our boxes are 100% recyclable at participating facilities. (recyclecartons.com)



We work with 1% For The Planet to donate at least 1% of annual revenue to reforestation and world water relief.


First off, why 'Boxed Water'?

We feel that sustainability and giving back are important. We wanted to start a water company that has sustainable packaging, gives back to causes that we feel are important, and has a lower carbon footprint than traditional bottled water. We’re changing the way water is sold, shipped and consumed.

How long has Boxed Water been around?

The idea of Boxed Water was born in April of 2008. Boxed Water was publicly launched on Friday, March 13th, 2009 at our favorite place to grab lunch, the Grand Central Market in downtown Grand Rapids.

How is the water itself better?

We use a proprietary process including reverse osmosis, carbon filtration, and mineral removal for purity which gives Boxed Water its clean, crisp taste. And for product safety, we use a UV light and ozonation process. Boxed Water is free from chromium, arsenic, MTBE, chlorine, fluoride and trace pharmaceuticals.

Where is Boxed Water from?

Boxed Water Is Better, LLC is a Grand Rapids, Michigan based company (we love it here!). We recently opened a second state of the art plant in Utah to reduce our carbon footprint and better serve growing regional demand.

I see that you donate to charitable efforts as part of 1% for the Planet. What charities and causes do you support?

As part of our partnership with 1% for the Planet, we’ve committed to donate 1% of our total annual revenue to the National Forest Foundation reforestation efforts.

Did you know tap water is better for the earth when compared to packaged water?

Yes. Our goal has two parts: First, create a product for a growing market (bottled water) that lessens the environmental impact and gives back a bit - which simply makes us ‘better’ as we say, and a step in the right direction. Second, Boxed Water Is Better is an ever growing and adapting project. R&D is core to everything we do and we’ve committed to constantly exploring new technology to lessen the impact of the portable water market while always giving back.

Does Boxed Water sponsor parties, events, artists, athletes, etc.?

We are still a small company and sponsor sparingly, but we love working with like-minded people! Visit us at BoxedWater.HelloSponsor.com if you have an opportunity you’d like us to consider.
