Every day we fight to reduce waste and minimize our environmental impact. Our commitment is demonstrated by comparing the product we make in 2017 with what we made in 2002. We have eliminated the cardboard tray, use a smaller label and half the plastic for the bottle and cap. The bottles are now made of 100% recycled PET plastic that can be recycled over and over again. When we can, we use coloured plastic that might otherwise be down-cycled. We also “nest” the bottles so they take up less room when transported and are easier to carry.
We have reduced the overall amount of energy required to produce a case of bottled water by 78% (Canadian production). And we have decreased greenhouse gas emissions also by 78%(Canadian production). Yes – huge reductions that we are proud of. The largest reductions have been achieved because we recycle PET and run fully integrated manufacturing operations. We also pay attention to every detail and save as much energy as possible. This is our fight and we will continue to find innovative ways to be the leading environmental beverage company in North America.
