"The pouch is environmentally friendly," insists COO Craig Binks. "It requires 75 percent less energy to produce and 95 percent less land fill compared to a PET bottle." The pouch's multi-layer structure includes PET, biaxially-oriented nylon and a coextruded, proprietary inner layer to safeguard the product from any off tastes from the plastic.
Water is a scarce and valuable commodity in Utah, and Wasatch managers hope the purity of their product and the distinctive, 16-oz. pouch from Ampac Flexibles-Converted Products will justify a premium price from a national audience. Since production began two years ago, it has been sold as 21 IceWater, Park City IceWater and now Wasatch, though distribution remains limited to the mountain states.
