What little plastic is used in this product can easily be put to further around the house or while away. The bladder has an infinite number of handy possibilities and in this post we will continually add ideas and photos as they get submitted by users and staff.  Keep checking back from time to time for great ideas as they come to hand.  Remember REDUCE and REUSE!


Ready for Action, Right out of the Box

Makes a great reusable floating device. When boating use the Water In A Box bladder as a fishing floatation device for catching Kingfish.  When away camping use as a reusable Kontiki float for snapper fishing.  Simply blow up the bladder when all the water has been consumed, and attach to your fishing line. You can also re-use the box to hold all the fish you will be catching!
At the end of hard days fishing you can use the air filled bladder as a pillow to have a nap. Very comfortable and air can be released or added to suit.
Chill down your Water In A Box bladder in the deep freeze (never completely freeze a full bladder as it expands) then use the bladder on its own to chill down your chilly bin (Eski if you’re from Oz) You then keep your food cool for the day and have great refreshingly chilled water as well
In the event of bodily injuries where swelling, bruising or sprains occur it is always handy to keep a Water in a Box bladder with approx ½ litre of water in the freezer which can then be simply wrapped around the injured area to help ease inflammation until you can seek proper medical attention.
Party balloons which can be painted with faces or messages to suit any occasion.
Can be used as gap filler in boxes when packaging or shifting electronic, high value or breakable items.  Simply inflate to fill the space required.

    Would be good if we could refill our waterinabox. Otherwise a really good thing (we’ve bought two so far this summer). We were very impressed by how cool the water stayed, unrefrigerated, during a recent camping Christmas.

    Good product, but it would be perfect if you could refill the bladder.

    I love your product. However, my family goes through 30 Litres of drinking water every week.. that’s 3 pouches. I’ve already collected 25 pouches.. more than I can put to any practical use. The plastic bottles we used to purchase were recyclable.. but now I find that I’m collecting pouches to no end.. Any ideas for them to be TRUELY recycled??

    Do you know if san I recycle the bladder in Auckland? I can’t reuse them all and although I like the alternative to plastic bottles, I really want to be able to recycle all parts of the product properly. I don’t drink the tap water anymore so the bladders are piling up on top of my fridge… I can’t handle just putting them in the bin.

    Hi Sara
    Thank you for your inquiry re Water in a box bladders.
    Before we introduced Water in a box into the New Zealand market I had several meetings with the Auckland City Council recycling division.They have told me the bladders fall into the plastic recycling category No 7.The same as meat trays and Cereal foil packets.It is alright to put bladders into the recycling bin.By using Water in a box you save 80% less plastic in the environment .The equivalent of 6×1.5lt plastic bottles.
    Kind Regards

    Thank you for a wonderful product. I have lived ruraly all my life and up until five years ago had the pleasure of drinking spring water from our own bore. I have had to move house to where the water supply is like that of town supply and it is horrible to drink – I can taste and see the difference in water quality. So for the last year I have been drinking Water in a Box and absolutely love it. No need to refrigerate as it stays cool enough to quench my thirst even on the hottest days. I recommend it to everyone who comes to my home when they see the box. Not sure though if I have converted anyone yet …
    Very grateful.

    Cut up and make kids party hats, spacemen suits etc. Also cut into strips and tie to fishing lines to make bird scarers to rig on boats and prevent the critters from pooping on your deck!

    Hello,
    I do shopping online, and would love if water in a box could be purchased online!
    Please make it happen.
    Thanks!
