Water in a Box: Aqua 2 Go

Once a mere figment of my imagination, a drink box filled with water for adults, is now a reality.

OK, so I just heard about this new water on Ellen today and it is a fabulous idea! Thanks to the aseptic packaging and reverse osmosis purification, AQUA2GO ($3.89 per 8 pack) is pure, safe and great-tasting water. The water is purified and packaged to a US Coast Guard Standard and has a five-year shelf life. Unlike bottled water, AQUA2GO requires no special storage, is lightweight and can easily be flattened after use.

The best part? Everyone loves drinking from a juice box and water is way less in calories than juice (especially the juices in juice boxes). What's more? The packaging is convenient enough to take around with you everywhere and much less bulky than bottle water. Look for it at your local grocery store.

Ellen took it upon herself to create a commercial for this great new product, and it happens to be a rather hilarious spoof on the famous Justin Timberlake " a box" SNL appearance. So I thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!

Fit's Tip: Are you involved? AQUA2GO sells water boxes below wholesale cost to fundraisers geared toward recovery of New Orleans (schools, hospitals, churches, rebuilding homes, etc.).

I think this is a great idea for kids but I'm lucky-- so far my 15 month old couldn't care less about juice. Just milk and water for her! But I don't think I, personally, would carry around a water box for myself. A water bottle I can throw in my purse, my car, etc. and as long as the cap is screwed on tight, we're good to go. But once you open a water box, you don't have that option of closing it back up tight if you're not done. Ya know? But I will check out these options for Savannah.

Have you all heard of Wateroos? It's another water in a juice box also made by a mom. I've been buying Wateroos for my son for about a year. They offer unflavored and all natural flavored waters too! The flavored waters are great. I was able to get my son to stop drinking apple juice - now he only drinks Apple Wateroos. There is no sugar or artificial sweeteners in the flavored waters and no calories either. And my son really loves all of the animal characters on the boxes! No more fighting with him about drinking juice :-) Check it out at:

Oh...this would be great for my kids. Right now, I buy them little 4 oz bottles of water, but I know they love juice boxes!

I agree...ALL my bottles get recycled - and that's a lot. (I know what you mean about not all making it, though, bpjedi...I have co-workers who will walk PAST the giant recycling cart to throw their cans and bottles in the tiny wastebasket - going OUT OF THEIR WAY to trash them - but I think they're losers.)

Nifty idea, but all i can remember from my juicebox days was how absolutely terrible they are for the environment! Those packages do not decompose in the landfill. Water bottles on the other hand, are recyclable or reusable. Personally, i use the tall water bottles to keep my boots standing upright when not in use! I'm sure it will sell but, after all, its just water!

Love this idea, especially because we know that not all of those very recyclable used water bottles find their way to the recycling bin.

Crispet - sorry you missed your calling. :) I like this idea because kids are so used to drinking from juice boxes - this might help them to make the switch to water a little easier. Bottles of water are harder for them to open themselves (younger kids, I mean).

I think that would be good for emergency storage...but is it cost effective? (I buy cases of water, so they end up being about 19 cents a bottle for 16 oz). Also, is it recyclable? I noticed that Capri Sun has flavored water in their pouches now. (Probably still with HF corn syrup!) I thought about buying them for my kids for about half a second and then thought...if they want water at school, they can go to the drinking fountain! (Haha, says me who won't drink anything but bottled.) That is great that they have such a long shelf life, though...bottled is only one year and I think gallons are the same.

I told my mom when I was a kid that people should invent water in a box and she told me that since there were juice boxes and bottled waters that no one would buy a water box. Geez, had I ignored her advice and made my own water boxes at the ripe age of eight, Id be a millionaire!

cool -- I had water in a can once -- it was on an airline and it was like the BEST water I've ever tasted.
