Alternative Packaging

February 21, 2010

We applaud these Canadian innovators who are creating safe, recyclable, plastic free alternatives for some of the modern conveniences that we use everyday.

O.N.E. / One Natural Experience is Canadian spring water, packaged in a paper box.

The tetra pack carton is BPA- free, and made mainly from natural, sustainable resources.

The profits from the sale of this product will be donated to a non- profit organization, and consumers are directed to a website to vote for the charity of their choice.

Kudos to organizers of New York Fashion Week, for giving out these great water boxes in the Bryant Park tents!

Another company doing their part for our environment and our health is Abeego.

This company has created a natural, hand crafted solution for food storage. Made from hemp/cotton fabric and coated with beeswax and plant extracts, these innovative wraps come in 3 sizes and shapes, with color coded string ties to identify the package’s contents. They are soap and cold water washable, and durable enough to be used many times.

Just by eliminating plastic water bottles, and plastic wrap from our daily use, we can dramatically cut our exposure to harmful BPA’s and help to save our environment at the same time. Not a bad deal, we think!
