One of our proudest achievements to date. All bottles shipped from our plant are made from 100% RPET (Post Consumer Food Grade Recycled Plastic).
This stops new or “virgin” plastic being added to the planet, we simply collect what is already out there to recycle and reuse. Essentially a closed loop system. Our bottles are also 100% recyclable. Not to mention they are BPA, BPS, BHA and BHT free. Our cardboard cases are made from 75% recycled materials and are 100% recyclable. We then contribute to bottle redemption programs worldwide to help keep recycling centers operating.
We will continue to improve our environmental imprint as packaging and technology improvements become available, so every customer can continue to feel good about drinking 1907water.
At present RPET is the best packaging option for us as it is also 100% recyclable in all recycling centers. Many recycling centers across the USA and NZ who process kerbside recycling are not equipped to process and recycle all packaging types. These include Tetra Pak (boxed cartons) or plant based (compostable) materials.
Please refer to your local recycling center for more details.
Like our water, we want to leave everything as untainted as possible. It starts with our ancient single-source aquifer, that has been refilled by snow-melt and rain for centuries. This renewable water source naturally rises to the surface under its own pressure, without the need for machinery or energy usage.
As a water company, we understand every drop is precious.
Did you know?
It takes 1.39 liters of water to make 1L of bottled water, but
• 74 liters to make a glass of beer,
• 1239 liters to make one pizza and
• 17,196 liters to make 1kg of chocolate
and that New Zealand exports just 0.000002% of its total fresh water resource in bottled water?
We gladly comply with the strictest quality control and environmental regulations, and hold those who partner with us to the same high standards and sustainability practices.
