Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 04, 2012
Category innovator Green Planet Bottling has won an enormous share of the retail travel market with distribution in the HMS Host Motorway Travel Plazas along the turnpikes of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maine, Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, West Virginia and Illinois.
HMS Host facilities are the recognized leader in providing complete travel, shopping and dining solutions for motorway and travel plazas in North America. A complete list of locations is available here: HMS Host Motorway Locations in the US.
This enormous expansion is in addition to Green Planet Water’s steadily gaining shelf-share in HMS HOST International Airport kiosk locations across the US. “We consider our brand the preferred water for travelers,” said Green Planet CEO Danny Rubenstein.
Green Planet’s unique 100% plant-based bottle is derived from completely renewable plant resources. The bottle is recyclable, commercially compostable and reusable when hand-washed between uses.
“We are a society on the go and access to bottled water is a necessity,” said Janet DiGiovanna, Chief Marketing Officer of Green Planet Bottling. “When we’re traveling, we need an alternative choice, and Green Planet is the better bottle. We know that travelers appreciate Green Planet’s wide availability with HMS Host.” Green Planet’s petroleum and BPA free bottle is filled with vapor distilled water, with minerals carefully added for taste, in three retail sizes: 350 ml, 500ml, and 1 liter.
“Green Planet is leading the industry in responding to consumer concerns with our completely plant‐based bottle,” said Rubenstein. “Green Planet bottles reduce dependency on oil and provide an alternative to petroleum-based plastic bottles,” he added.
Here are a few of the environmental benefits of Green Planet Water:
- Making the Ingeo source material for Green Planet’s bottles produces 60% less greenhouse gases and uses 50% less non-renewable energy than producing traditional plastics like PET & PS. (1)
- The bottles are commercially compostable in 84 days. (2)
- The bottles are reusable (when hand-washed between uses), which helps to reduce waste.
- The bottles are recyclable (in all recycling programs that accept #7 bottles). (3)
- Bottles are filled by regional suppliers using water that has been treated by vapor distillation to remove all impurities, with minerals added for taste.
- Regional distribution ensures that less fuel is wasted to transport the bottles.
