One of the leading Austrian consulting companies in the field of sustainable development and environmental management, Denkstatt GmbH, has just published a study that mirrors our calculations on the relative environmental impact of recycled PET compared to virgin material.
As a company that provides bottled water to millions of consumers every day you can be sure we are acutely aware of the importance of this resource. An updated report published by WHO/UNICEF on Drinking Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, states that “71% of the global population (5.2 billion people) used a safely managed drinking water service.”
The Berkshire Eagle, based in Pittsfield MA, reports on Canada-based Ice River Springs which has been bottling water at the New England plant since 2008, for “large regional and national chains like Price Chopper, Big Y Foods, Shaw’s, Wegmans, Aldi, CVS, and others.”
Ice River Spring supported the “Buy Good. Feel Good.” Expo in May. It is a trade show that features organizations and that empower communities and innovate for a better world.
Kelly Okamura from Rabble.ca attended the show and met Crystal Howe (Gott), Sustainability Manager, who was representing Ice River Springs and BMP Recycling.
Ice River Springs has been recognized with an award for the second time in 2017. The editors at Store Brands magazine picked Ice River Green for a Bronze award in the Best New Ready-to-Drink Beverage Product category. The Private Label Trailblazer Award from Grocery Headquarters magazine was announced earlier in the year.
