In honor of Earth Day on April 22, raise a toast to the big blue marble with an organic juice from Planet Fuel. Our panel of taste-testers enjoys their line of organic juice and water blends, which include cherry lemonade, apple-grape, and mango-pear-lime. Their slim, 10-ounce aluminum cans fit easily into a lunch box or sports practice bag. (And cans are more completely recyclable than juice boxes or pouches.)
While our favorite flavor was the tart cherry lemonade, the apple-grape and mango-pear-lime were deliciously light and thirst-quenching. Both the lemonade and mango-pear-lime were elegant enough to serve to adults with more sophisticated palates.
The parents and tweens among us are gratified by the company’s pledge to protect wildlife and wild places through their Planet Fuel Charitable Fund. Each can of Planet Fuel reminds us that we can care for the earth every time we shop for the people we love.
