WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Convenience store chain Kum & Go's private label Hiland Premium Artesian Bottled Water will soon be available in the ENSO biodegradable plastic bottle, according to the packaging company.
"Kum & Go is committed to improving our environment and we are thrilled to offer our Hiland Premium Artesian Water in an environmentally friendly bottle," Kyle Krause, Kum & Go president and CEO, said in a statement. "We all need to become environmentally aware and we're taking steps to ensure a better environment for us and future generations."
Hiland Premium Artesian Water in ENSO biodegradable bottles are designed to biodegrade in a landfill, and can also be recycled with standard plastics, according to ENSO. Hiland brand water packaged in the biodegradable bottles is scheduled to hit the more than 430-unit c-store chain's shelves this December.
"We're excited to be working with Kum & Go to launch Hiland Premium Artesian Water in ENSO biodegradable plastic bottles," Danny Clark, president of ENSO Bottles, stated. "They are leading the convenience store industry by providing their customers with an environmental solution for bottled water. Having ENSO biodegradable bottles available at all 431 stores is going to have a huge impact on helping our environment."
