Poland Spring aims for 100% recycled plastic packaging by 2022


Poland Spring Nestle WatersStamford-based Nestlé Waters North America has announced that its Poland Spring Brand 100% Natural Spring Water has started transitioning its packaging to recycled plastic (rPET) and seeks to become the first major bottled water brand to reach 100% recycled plastic across its still water portfolio by 2022.

Poland Spring’s current packaging is predominantly made using PET plastic and is already 100% recyclable. The brand’s 1-liter bottles will begin using 100% rPET for its packaging this month. Nestlé Waters North America previously announced the goal of 25% recycled plastic across its U.S. domestic portfolio by 2022 and a 50% recycled plastic goal by 2025.

“As a company, we’ve already put our stake in the ground when it comes to taking the ‘single’ out of ‘single-use’ plastic bottles,” said Fernando Mercé, president and CEO of Nestlé Waters North America. “As we begin to transform Poland Spring, our most iconic brand, to 100% recycled plastic packaging, we will begin to bring this commitment to life for our consumers in a tangible way. Bottles like these, which are made from 100% recycled plastic and are 100% recyclable, are proof that a fully circular economy is within our reach.”
