How To Stay Hydrated And Be Kind To The Planet At The Same Time

We all know we’re supposed to drink more water every day, but that’s easy to forget during your morning latte or when your BFF made too much sangria (is there even such a thing?). On the occasion you do remember to go for some classic H20, it’s nearly impossible to find something other than plastic bottles. Sure, you’ve quenched your thirst, but if you’re anything like me, you’ve replaced that feeling with guilt over not choosing a more eco-friendly option. Enter: Boxed Water.

Boxed Water is changing the game of convenient hydration. When their minimal-but-bold packaging first caught my eye, I had to know more.

Some days, I know I certainly sip more and other days I could definitely do a better job at hydrating.

I saw on inspirational supernova Amy Purdy’s Instagram post that she downs two glasses first thing in the morning. She does this to hydrate and wake up her digestive track, preparing it for coffee, tea, breakfast and more. I always try to remember to have a glass before every snack and meal but it doesn’t always work out. I’m not completely missing out on the benefits however since 20% of our fluid intake comes from natural foods like veggies and fruit. Continue Reading
