Improving packaging performancea 700ml bottle made from 100% recycled plastic called rPET. With a modern, premium design, the bottle reflects our commitment not just to protecting the environment, but to helping people drink more water. We also reduced the plastic content of our 500ml Nestlé Waters bottles by over 60%, which avoids the use of more than 2.7 million tonnes of plastic. In November 2018, we signed an agreement with recycled plastics producer CarbonLITE – this means the supplier is building a production facility near two of our bottling plants.
Additionally, all of our single-serve bottles of Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water and Nestlé Pure Life? Purified Water produced in California are made with 50% recycled plastic. In Europe, we use bio-based plastic for our Levissima bottles, with it making up 30% of our still water bottles and 16% of our 1.5L sparkling water bottles.
