(Victor Valley)– Nestlé Pure Life Purified Water, the world’s leading bottled water brand, announced the introduction of a 700-mL bottle made from 100 percent food grade recycled plastic*, known as rPET. The new package is available starting this month on retail store shelves in North America.
“Nestlé Waters North America is the original bottled water company in the U.S., and environmental sustainability is an integral part of our company’s purpose and heritage,” said Antonio Sciuto, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Nestlé Waters North America. “This new bottle made from 100 percent recycled plastic for our namesake brand is the latest way we’re satisfying consumer demand for healthy hydration on-the-go and inspiring consumers to recycle.”
The new Nestlé® Pure Life® bottles feature a modern, premium design, along with the new branding launched last year under the banner of “Pure Life Begins Now™” that aims to elevate the importance of quality water in people’s lives. The launch of a bottle made entirely from recycled plastic reinforces the brand’s leadership and purpose: to inspire a healthier and brighter future that starts with water.
The Nestlé® Pure Life® 700mL bottle will be featured in a short video highlighting its use of recycled materials, and encouraging consumers to recycle the bottle so that it can be made into a new one. The video can be found on the brand’s social media channels and website. The product can be purchased at grocery, mass, and convenience stores across the country.
Since 2005, the company has reduced the amount of PET plastic in Nestlé® Pure Life® half-liter bottles by 40 percent. Today, the introduction of Nestlé® Pure Life® rPET bottles to consumers nationwide, complements our efforts to inspire and make it easier for consumers to recycle, building on last year’s move to begin adding How2Recycle information on the labels of our major U.S. bottled water brands. These labels include a reminder for consumers to empty the bottle and replace the cap on the bottle before recycling.
To date, we have undertaken many initiatives to reduce waste and reuse materials in packaging across our portfolio of beverages:
