Nestlé Waters France announces that the bottles of the Vittel, Hepar and Contrex brands of the nomadic ranges (size less than 1L) and flavored are now made from 100% recycled plastic (rPET).
Nestlé Waters is thus accelerating the integration of recycled material into its ranges of still natural mineral water with the ambition that all of its bottles contain recycled plastic by the end of 2021. This is a major step for Nestlé Waters in its objective of achieving carbon neutrality by 2025 across its entire brand portfolio.
Carbon neutrality of brands by 2025
After the launch at the end of 2019 of the first 75cL 100% rPET natural mineral water bottle in France by Vittel, followed by Vittel 2L and 70cl 100% recycled bottles, Nestlé Waters is therefore continuing its acceleration in the eco-design of its packaging with the increase from 35% to 100% of the proportion of recycled plastic in all its 33cl and 50cl Vittel, Hepar and Contrex bottles, and in the Vittel Up and Contrex Green drinks. At the same time, the rest of the range of natural mineral waters Vittel, Hepar and Contrex will incorporate a minimum of 35% recycled material during the year. This innovation has thus become possible thanks to more than 24 million euros invested in the Nestlé Waters plant in the Vosges since 2019 in order to equip the latter with more modern production lines and tools. "By converting all of our small still and flavored water bottles into 100% recycled plastic, we are taking another important step in the sustainable reduction of the use of virgin plastic in our packaging", declares Françoise Bresson, CSR Director and Communication from Nestlé Waters France. As a reminder, one tonne of recycled plastic saves the equivalent of 2 tonnes of CO2 (2).
