Plas­tic al­ter­na­tive of­fered

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

WOR­RIED by the thought of plas­tic wa­ter bot­tles pil­ing up in land­fill, Mt Clare­mont res­i­dent Cindy Tonkin started a new busi­ness of­fer­ing eco-friendly wa­ter in a car­ton. The Car­ton & Co founder said she be­lieved most Aus­tralians would hap­pily choose a re­cy­clable, re­new­able car­ton al­ter­na­tive to plas­tic bot­tles. “In Aus­tralia, we spend hun­dreds of mil­lions of dol­lars on bot­tled wa­ter each year,” Ms Tonkin said. “Wa­ter in a car­ton of­fers that en­vi­ron­men­tally sound, greener al­ter­na­tive. “In an ideal world, peo­ple wouldn’t drink sin­gle-use pack­aged wa­ter. How­ever, we be­lieve peo­ple should have a choice if they do need to buy wa­ter on the go, and they want an en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly op­tion to plas­tic wa­ter bot­tles.”
