A green bottled-beverage alternative
Concentrates seem to be a growing trend among sustainable-minded companies (see www.packworld.com/news-24270).
Not only do concentrates reduce the amount of packaging required for a product, but they can also greatly decrease the energy costs and carbon emissions associated with the transport of the diluted version.
“Most people get their noncarbonated beverages out of half-liter plastic bottles,” says Esio Beverage Co. president Lyle Myers. “The Esio-Pak provides consumers with the opportunity to have their noncarbonated beverages and reduce the amount of PET that is going into our landfills by 92 percent.”
According to Myers, each 3-oz pouch of concentrate equals up to 108 oz of product, or seven half-liter bottles of beverage. This translates into 20 half-liter bottles for every three Esio-Paks consumed
