Nestlé Waters Canada has been working to reduce the amount of net-new plastic in the world by introducing lighter bottles into the market while increasing recycling efforts. We are committed to helping transform the recycling system, seek innovations to change the materials we use, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and work to recover the unmanaged waste that is ending up in the environment.
We are proud to have one of the lightest plastic beverage bottles in the market. Since 2005, we have light weighted our packaging by more than 40%, and we are working on plans to increase our use of post-consumer recycled plastic in our products. Likewise, PET is the second most valuable product in the Blue Bow program. Our bottles are 100% recyclable, and we are working with industry partners to help ensure those bottles are captures, recycled, and reused repeatedly.
