Greif Receives Global Green Industrial Design Award For Its PackH2O™ Backpack

Simple Idea, Intelligent DesignThe water backpack is part of the company's work with the Clinton Global Initiative and its commitment to CGI to improve water transport in some of the world's poorest regions.

  • Sturdy base to allow the pack to stand on its own when filled
  • Wide mouth for fast filling
  • Spigot designed to deliver a steady stream of water into a container without splashing
  • Removable, replaceable clear liner that can be disinfected by exposure to sunlight
  • Reflective strips for safety at night
