CHICAGO, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Planet Bottling has launched a new entry to the $11 billion bottled water market, packaged in an organic, 100-percent plant-based bottle.
Unlike the dominant plastic bottles containing petroleum and BPA, Green Planet bottles are made from 100-percent plants that are toxin-free and carbon neutral. They do not leach chemicals into contents, are reusable, completely recyclable and compostable in just 80 days. The water itself is vapor-distilled for purity and taste and when possible sourced within 500 miles of its destination, so it is less environmentally detrimental than brands transported long distances.
Green Planet water is currently available in a 16.9 oz. bottle; one liter and 12 oz. bottles will be introduced this spring. It is priced competitively with premium water brands offered in petroleum-based bottles.
The company was founded by Bradford Schulman, whose previous specialty beverage business transformed Mighty Leaf Tea and Intelligentsia Coffee into well-known national brands. "We're increasingly hearing about the dangers of petroleum-based bottles, and Green Planet is leading the industry in responding with our 100-percent plant-based compostable and recyclable bottle," says Schulman.
Currently, Green Planet is being distributed in 18 markets throughout the U.S., targeting schools at all levels, corporate campuses and hotels, where offering the brand counts toward LEED certification. It's also being picked up at select restaurants, convenience stores and public locations, such as cultural centers.
Green Planet Bottling, LLC. (www.greenplanetbottling.com) was formed to help its customers make positive and sustainable differences by making a product that is healthy for our bodies and our planet. Its vision is to become the premier bottler of waters/beverages in organic, sustainable packaging.
