Entering its fourth and most ambitious year, the Better for our Planet campaign showcasesBoxed Water’s commitment giving back to the planet. The brand plants two trees every time asocial post features the Boxed Water and #BetterPlanet. Already this effort has resulted in 612,000 tree plantings in our National Forests, where wildfires and natural causes destroy roughly 7 million acres each year. Free People is now joining the Boxed Water campaign to help fill the planet with more trees. Together, the brands will plant 5 trees for each post with their collaborative box.
“The Free People girl wants to make a positive impact on the planet and within her community,” said Mary Gaughan, head of brand partnerships at Free People. “We’ve seen and loved how Boxed Water took a lead in offering choices to help the planet. We are thrilled to bring our unique Free People aesthetic to this box and amplify the message by multiplying the trees we will plant together.”
Boxed Water’s branding will remain on the box to communicate the message that there is a sustainable alternative to plastic bottles, but the exclusive design brings in visuals from FreePeople’s FP Movement line, celebrating its feminine, creative and curious personality. The limited edition box will launch at Free People’s Endless Summer Pop Up Experience at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs in April. Additionally, Boxed Water will be in select Free People stores across the U.S. and online at freepeople.com.
“Both the Boxed Water and Free People brands resonate with young, creative and thoughtful consumers who want to better our planet,” said Rob Koenen, Chief Marketing Officer at Boxed Water. “Simply put – we are better together and both believe it is important for like-minded brands to join forces in doing good and empowering people to take action.”
