Sipping Sustainably: How TetraPak is Revolutionizing the Bottled Water Industry

Apr 7, 2023 | News

Each year, more than 8 million tons of plastic water bottles enter our oceans. If this rate is to continue, by the year 2050, scientists anticipate that there will be more plastic in our oceans than fishes. The traditional plastic water bottle causes harm to the environment during every stage of the life cycle. Moreover, plastic bottles can take hundreds of years to decompose, leading to severe environmental consequences. Recent years have seen the emergence of TetraPack water as a sustainable solution to the plastic bottle epidemic. The benefits of TetraPack water are also not limited to their environmental impact.

Increased Shelf Life

The shelf life of Tetrapack water long outlives its plastic counterparts. The Tetrapak water bottles are made using aseptic technology, which helps to preserve the quality and freshness of the water. The aseptic packaging process ensures that the water inside the Tetrapak bottle remains fresh for longer, reducing the need for additional preservatives or additives.

Reduced ‘Water Footprint’

Water Footprint is the indicator of both direct and indirect water used in production. For a regular 500ml PET bottle of water (plastic bottle), the water footprint comes in at an average of 1-2 litres for manufacturing. Whereas, a Tetrapack bottle with the same volume comes in with a water footprint of 200ml. It can also be argued that the trees from which the cartons are made from, further reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, further contributing to a cleaner planet.

Lightweight & Convenience

Tetrapak water bottles are lightweight, making them easier to transport than plastic bottles. They are also convenient to use, as they can be easily stored and carried around. This convenience makes Tetrapak water bottles a popular choice for people who lead an active lifestyle or those who are always on the go.

Unique Selling Point

The water market is incredibly competitive. Just taking a look at the bottled water aisle in a supermarket will highlight the fact that a majority of the products are almost identical. With TetraPack water bottles, your product has the opportunity to stand out from the crowd with its distinct packaging and environmentally friendly connotations in the eyes of consumers.
