Nestlé Waters has announced that the entire plastic bottle range for the Swiss mineral water brand Henniez is now made of 75% recycled PET plastic (rPET). Henniez was already using 30% Swiss recycled PET since 2013. Now, its ambition is to move to 100% locally recycled PET, which will close the PET circular loop, as discarded PET bottles will be made into new Henniez recycled plastic bottles multiple times, without tapping into new oil resources.

“With 75% recycled plastic in all our Henniez plastic bottles, we are clearly committed to this highly efficient circular economy,” said Alessandro Rigoni, general manager of Nestlé Waters Switzerland.
