At this point, as a society we are starting to wake up to the dangers on the environment that consumable plastic water bottles are having. In fact, recent studies suggest it takes upwards of 1000 years for a single bottle to decompose. Not to mention, the effect it is having on our natural world – killing animals, leaking chemicals and disrupting ecosystems. One company wants us to reduce or environmental footprint while still enjoying our favorite flavored water beverage with their line of fully recyclable pouches that add positive vitamins and minerals to ordinary water, so that everyone can hydrate in a healthy way.
Prime Plus, are on a noble mission to eliminate disposable PET bottles from North America, fully realizing the misconceptions people have about “ordinary” tap water or bottled water “being better”. Last year alone, Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles with only a measly 23% being recycled. In fact, a little known fact is that just one water filter found in a standard Brita or Zero water pitcher can effectively replace as much as 300 standard 16.9-ounce bottles with the irony being that the bottled water sold by the big brands, is in fact just purified municipal water, which is exactly what these inexpensive pitchers do.
Their solution? Encourage the use of reusable bottles and make hydrating yourself a fun and tasty experience. Their individual serving packets come in a range of different flavors from pomegranate to kiwi to orange and blackberry plus they are 99% sugar free and make water taste great! They also include Vitamin D, Calcium and are a good source of potassium and magnesium. They are also caffeine free and can be enjoyed cold or warm.
After trying the different offerings these past months, we have really begun to enjoy our water again. I, myself, are guilty of buying carbonated flavored water in cans and these have helped me kick my habit along with the recommended purchase of a good quality reusable bottle such as Nalgene. Our personal favorite around the office has been blackberry, which also features purple potato extract known to be packed with antioxidants, be a valuable source of fiber and can help lower blood pressure. We also love, that these essentially take away the guilt of drinking flavored water, knowing that these are largely sugar free and packed with vitamins and minerals that assist body function.
At the end of the day, Prime Plus want us to stop buying bottled flavored water and start making our own without the waste. There packets not only taste as good as any other bottled brand, but they are also good for you and make you want to drink more water and stay hydrated. In our books, any product that is better for the environment and your health, gets our seal of approval!
