With the 47th annual Earth Day (April 22) roughly a month away, consumers increasingly are reminded about the environmental sustainability efforts in which they can participate. But consumers aren’t the only ones who try to take the extra step to be more environmentally conscious.
Savvy marketers have known for years that packaging can play an important role in communicating a product’s proposition and influencing purchasing decisions. As consumers demand high-quality and healthy products, they also are becoming increasingly interested in the environmental impact of the product’s packaging.
To help mark the 46th anniversary of Earth Day, hundreds of groups across North America have registered their events on earthday.org. Although numerous associations are doing their part to help fuel the environmental movement, consumers still are looking for guidance when it comes to one of the most common environmental practices: recycling.
Icebox Water, Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., announces the launch of its new initiative, Beyond the Bottle. The initiative is committed to educating all people on the importance of personal and planetary health, supported by Icebox Water’s pure, sustainably sourced drinking water and environmentally responsible packaging, the company says. By providing consistently updated information about the state of the environment and healthy, sustainable water sourcing, Icebox Water demonstrates the need for reducing plastic pollution while providing an ethical, delicious source of water, it adds.
