Packaged water company signs deal
A restaurant business in New York is tapping a local packaged water company as a supplier.
Grand Rapids-based Boxed Water signed a contract with Creamline, according to Boxed Water yesterday.
Creamline offers American classics, like burgers and shakes, with a focus on local ingredients and sustainability.
It has consciously built relationships with eco-friendly vendors since it opened in Chelsea Market in 2015.
Since then, Creamline has opened a second restaurant on 7th Avenue in Chelsea and is eyeing expansion, as well as changing its waste stream by removing plastic water bottles.
"Sustainability is one of our core principles at Creamline,” said Harris Mayer-Selinger, managing partner, Creamline. “It's an important consideration when we decide which farmers supply our ingredients, what food we cook and how we package our food to guests.
“Now, thanks to our partnership with Boxed Water, we are able to expand our sustainability efforts by preventing 24,000 plastic bottles from being discarded in our restaurant each year."
Creamline has also incorporated compostable cups and packaging and eliminated plastic straws.
