The entire range of Buxton bottles will be made of 100% rPET by 2021
Buxton Natural Mineral Water has launched 75cl and 1 litre bottles made from 100% recycled PET plastic. The new bottles are manufactured entirely from used plastic significantly reducing the amount of virgin plastic in circulation.
The UK launch of rPET bottles is the latest in Nestlé Waters’ efforts to increase the use of recycled plastic to 35% worldwide by 2025. The rest of the Buxton range, currently made with a minimum of 20% recycled plastic, will follow by end 2021.
“We are incredibly excited to be able to put our commitments to sustainability into practice” said Michel Beneventi, Business Executive Officer for Nestlé Waters UK. “The high-quality recycled material retains the same all-important properties as PET, resulting in a product that is lightweight, durable, resilient and still 100% recyclable.”
This year Nestlé laid out its vision that none of its product packaging, including plastics, should end up in landfill or as litter, including in seas, oceans and waterways and that all 100% of its packaging will be recyclable or reusable by 2025. Buxton is ahead of the target with this announcement.
