One of Nestlé’s bottled water brands, resource Natural Spring Water, has launched new bottles made with 100 percent recycled plastic (rPET), excluding the cap and the label.
The company says it hopes the recycled plastic bottle will focus attention on the uses of rPET and reinforce the importance of bottle-to-bottle recycling.
Parent company Nestlé Waters North America has committed to increasing plastic (PET) beverage bottle recycling rates to 60 percent by 2018.
Earlier this spring Nestlé’s water bottling operations in drought-stricken California came under fire as the state issued its first-ever statewide mandatory water reductions.
