James Souder selected for the second year of Ice River Springs’ Master’s Scholarship for Sustainability
The 2017 Ice River Springs’ Master’s Scholarship for Sustainability was awarded to James Souder, a Master’s of Environmental Management candidate at Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
Once again Ice River Springs’ booth stood out at the PLMA trade show in Chicago. Our product was the hero, both because it looks stunning when it is illuminated from underneath and also because our bottles are unique. We continue to be the only beverage supplier in North America that operates a closed-loop recycling operation making bottles that are 100% recycled.
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.”
