    Water in a Box has been created to provide you with high quality water in one of the most environmentally friendly packaging systems available today.  There are no bottles which means less plastic and less waste. In fact there is over 80% less plastic when compared to the equivalent water volume in plastic bottles or plastic containers.  Now that’s got to be better for the environment.

    BPA or Bisphenol A is used primarily to make plastics, and products containing Bisphenol A-based plastics have been in use for more than 50 years.

    Originally the USA’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said BPA was safe. Since then, however, the FDA has acknowledged concerns about the potential effects of BPA on the brain. Read More

    We gotta say a great time was had by all.  Check our gallery page for some great pics or click here for more info on the event.

    This year we were the exclusive water sponsor of the Oxfam Trail Walk held in Taupo.  We were the only water sponsor as we were the only water product that was effective in the reduction of waste at the event. Oxfam had the event audited by The InStep Programme.

    The challenge of the 100 km trail meant that participants needed water, lots of it. The funds raised from the event will support Oxfam New Zealand’s humanitarian, development and advocacy work to lift some of the world’s poorest people out of poverty.  A great cause!  Check out the live blog here and our gallery.

    The  Coatesville Classic Fun Run and Walk was bigger and better than ever and that was all down to a great crowd of people, some really fantastic kids, a whole busload of patient volunteers – and the weather, of course.

    From the moment Water in a Box led the race out onto the circuit to the moment the last kid crossed the finish line, it was smiles all round.

    The Sustainable Coastlines team and Water in a Box have been at it again!  Great Barrier Island was the focus this time with great participation and great results. Once again we provided plenty of water for the thirsty troops and a great day was had by all.

    Altogether there were 22 boats, 65 kayaks and two walking groups scouring the West Coast, and collectively we picked up over 29,000 litres of rubbish! That’s 3125 kilos  of trash that is no longer on the beaches of Aotea/Great Barrier Island. 300 kilos more than last year! A big congrats to everyone who helped out for a massive effort.

    Thank You!

    Posted in: Projects

    We would like to thank you very much for our water in a box that we used for the StandTall Leadership Camp in February.
    We re-used and recycled the boxes and bladders to make ‘boats’ with rice bubbles for passengers.
    We set sail at Omaha beach, while some ‘boats’ were good and kept their passengers dry, some were like the Titanic and lost all the passengers on the first sailing :(

    Thanks again from the
    KidsCan StandTall Team!

    “Water in a Box – AMAZING! This is the best tasting water I’ve tried in a long time – and for those who know me – that’s saying something as i find it really hard to get the standard “8 cups a day” down as I’m really not a water-fan but this makes it easy! It’s soft on the pallet without that harsh taste most waters on the market have and as i have the box on my desk – it’s very handy! I now have no excuse and will continue to enjoy Water in a Box every day!”
