"The launch of this new product responds to Nestlé Waters' commitment that all mineral water bottles, which are already 100% recyclable, will contain an increasing percentage of recycled plastic” said Philippe de Maillardoz, director of Nestlé Waters Spain. So, this is the first bottle made of 100% recycled PET plastic that we launched in the Spanish market. In the coming months we will continue to expand the use of recycled plastic in other key formats in our portfolio" he added.
Committed to sustainability
This new format forms part of Nestlé’s global drive to increase the use of alternative packaging materials , as well as specific commitments made by Nestlé Waters regarding environmental sustainability and plastic packaging.
Nestlé Waters Spain has already reduced the amount of plastic used in water bottles by an average of 20% since 2010. In addition, it is working to have all its bottles, which are already 100% recyclable, contain at least 50% recycled plastic by 2022 in the country.
