Nestle, Pepsi buy recycled content from new facility

March 26/2012

(polyestertime) -- Nestle Waters North America Inc. has committed to incorporating 50 percent recycled content in previously virgin-material bottles for its Arrowhead brand of spring water, using food-grade PET from CarbonLite Industries LLCs new recycling plant in Riverside.

Nestle will buy one-third of the USD58 million plants output. Separately, bottler PepsiCo Inc. has agreed to purchase 40 percent.

Nestle chose the Arrowhead brand for the recycled content because it is bottled primarily at the Nestle Waters bottling plant in Cabazon, CA, 40 miles east of Riverside, where the plant is located, Verespej writes.

PepsiCo did not specify how much recycled content might include in any of its beverage containers, according to Plastics News. Paul Boykas, vice president of global public policy for PepsiCo, noted, "We believe in investing in sustainable growth for people and for the planet."
