Only Water takes another step towards a more renewable packaging
From next July, the water in cardboard of Only Water will come in a more renewable container made up, almost entirely, of materials from renewable sources, this is because the minimum percentage of plastic they contain is no longer of origin fossil but mostly is of plant origin.
Only Water was born as a commitment to environmental responsibility, packaging water in cardboard already meant a reduction in the carbon footprint of 50% and is the most sustainable, renewable and recyclable option in relation to the rest of one-only containers.
Cardboard for a more renewable packaging
This is partly due to the fact that they are 70% made up of cardboard from responsibly managed forests, in which new trees are planted replacing the harvested ones. The cardboard used is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), which guarantees that this raw material is extracted and processed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while that guarantees economic viability.
Materials from renewable sources
It is called a renewable source to all that raw material that can be naturally replenished over time, and, therefore, it does not run out in nature, at Only Water we have replaced the fossil-based polyethylenes with which the packaging was so much such as the stopper, for materials from renewable sources, and implementing a sugar cane for its manufacture.
Likewise, the sugar cane has Bonsucro certification that guarantees that this vegetable raw material and its supply chain comply with the key production indicators, including its consumption of energy and water, as well as the emission of greenhouse gases.
In addition, compliance with regulations, labor rights, a safe and continuous local food supply, as well as other human factors that affect the impact of production on the local population are evaluated.
And if you wonder about aluminum
Aluminum has unique properties that make it a great resource for the transition to a sustainable economy, as it is extremely light and has excellent recyclability.
The aluminum layer in our packaging is eight times thinner than human hair and provides vital protection against oxygen and light, maintaining the properties of water without the need for refrigeration.
In the same sense as all the other components of our packaging, the aluminum used is certified with the global standard ASI (Aluminum Steawardship Initiave), which covers critical problems for the entire aluminum value chain, including emissions of greenhouse gases. greenhouse, waste management, material management, biodiversity and human rights.
