A Green Solution


A “green” product, WaterBricks can be made from virgin resin or recycled HDPE (High Density Polyethylene resin), the type of plastic used in water bottles and gallon milk containers that are now rapidly overwhelming this country’s landfills as waste.

WaterBrick plastic storage containers are being hailed as the most innovative use of HDPE plastics in 20 years. Additionally, they provide a green alternative to the non-recyclable bags and disposable containers currently being used to bring water and food to remote sites in Haiti, Africa and other locations worldwide.

For more information about HDPE plastic, read more on Wikipedia.

WaterBrick containers are not intended for the storage of flammable liquids.
