Nestlé expands use of rPET in Arrowhead water bottles


Nestlé Waters North America Inc. (Stamford, CT) is expanding its use of recycled content in its Arrowhead water brand for many of its most popular sized bottles by the end of 2016. This will increase Arrowhead's use of recycled content by 38% and will ensure that most of its bottle sizes contain up to 50% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET).

“Arrowhead has been part of California history for more than a century. We are continuously evolving our products to have the smallest environmental footprint possible. Thanks to California’s strong commitment to recycling, there is high quality rPET available enabling us to increase our use of recycled material,” said Tim Brown, CEO and President of Nestlé Waters North America, which operates the Arrowhead brand.
