Since 2015, Boxed Water has worked with the NFF to plant trees in National Forests through their 1% for the Planet membership. This past summer, trees committed from the #ReTree 2016 campaign were planted in the Sierra National Forest, Calif.; Stanislaus National Forest, Calif.; Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Utah. The NFF selects areas based on the greatest need due to factors like wildfires and other natural threats. This year the #ReTree project brings Boxed Water over halfway to its commitment to plant one million trees by 2020. Project details are available at boxedwaterisbetter.com.

"Through ReTree, Boxed Water's consumers make a direct and positive impact on the planet," said Daryn Kuipers, CEO of Boxed Water. "People can use their social influence to post and plant trees. Collaboratively this becomes a powerful way for a social community to make a statement that sustainability is important."

As the leader and pioneer in the sustainable packaged water category, Boxed Water is committed to changing the way water is packaged, shipped and enjoyed. This mission attracts a highly engaged community, especially the millennial consumer who uses social connections to effect change.

"The future of our forests depends on the support of the community. Boxed Water's lead of the #ReTree project, allows people to easily make a difference," said Mary Mitsos, NFF President. "In its third year, the #ReTree project continues to gain momentum and proves that people want simple ways to make a big impact on the planet. We are really excited to close this season out with over 600,000 trees and look forward to growing awareness for the project in the coming year."
