As a water company that relies on nature, we have a responsibility to take action and protect it. MadeBetter is our pledge to a healthy planet. Here’s what we’re doing.
MEET OUR BOTTLES
Like many of you, we’re on a journey to reduce waste. That’s why, since 2016, we have used 50% recycled plastic across our individual-sized still water bottles made in California. It gives existing materials new life, and can help keep plastic out of landfills and waterways. Over and over again, when recycled.
We are also proud to offer a reusable 5-gallon bottle. When empty and returned, we sanitize it and refill up to 25 times before finally recycling it.
DESIGNED FOR RECYCLING
Our bottles are designed to the standards of Association of Plastic Recycling (APR) to be 100% recyclable, including labels that peel off easily to avoid contaminating the recycling stream.
REDUCING PLASTIC SINCE 1990
Since 1990, we’ve reduced the amount of plastic used in our half-liter bottles by over 60%.
Less than 30% of PET plastic is recycled in the U.S. That means a shocking 68% ends up in the waste stream. But together we can change this. The more plastic you recycle, the more we can use to create new recycled bottles, and the less plastic waste is generated.
It’s hard to know how to recycle properly. Did you know to empty your bottle and put the cap back on before placing it in the recycling bin? We’ve added How2Recycle information to our labels that make it clear. Find out more at How2Recycle.info
CLOSED LOOP FUND
Along with our sister brands, we’ve committed $6M to the Closed Loop Fund to build circular supply chains and help increase recycling rates in communities across America.
