Our Life-Cycle study compares the production of plastic bottles, aluminum cans, Boxed Water cartons and their environmental impact.

This study is consistent with the International standards
for LCA: ISO 14040:2006 and ISO 14044:2006

The Findings

Boxed water has a lower impact in every category compared to plastic and a lower total environment profile than aluminum cans.

If the U.S. switched over to Boxed Water, we could...

  • Reduce our carbon footprint by
    the same amount as burning
    2 million metric tons of coal.

  • Save enough energy to power
    NYC for 1 month.

  • Drive from LA to NYC
    million times.

Isn't Enough

We're producing more than we can sustainably manage. We need to analyze the effects of production on the environment.

Our Choices Are Transforming the
Ocean, Lakes, and Rivers
