Glacia Icebox: Water in a Biodegradable Box
One of the standouts of our visit to New York's Fancy Food Show: the Glacia Icebox. Pure arctic spring water from Norway — "the best water in the world" no less — all in a completely recyclable, biodegradable, and non-toxic box. Get this: even with shipping from Norway, the small boxes have a carbon footprint that's only 1/4 of the comparable plastic bottles produced in the USA, all of which makes us wonder why no one had come up with this brilliant-but-obvious idea before. And the taste? JUST LIKE WATER.
