As a water company that relies on nature, we have a responsibility to take action and protect it. MadeBetter is our pledge to a healthy planet. Here’s what we’re doing.
WE'RE COMMITTED TO 100% RECYCLED PLASTIC*
Addressing plastic pollution is an urgent priority for us. Join us to create a fresher future from the Spring, Forward.
*Still water bottles under 1 gallon size will be made with 100% recycled plastic; labels and caps are not, though they are recyclable.
MEET OUR BOTTLES
Like many of you, we’re on a journey to reduce waste. That’s why we’ve pledged to use 100% recycled plastic across our still water portfolio by 2022*. It gives existing materials new life, and can help keep plastic out of landfills and waterways. Our 20-ounce, 700 mL, 1 Liter and 1.5 Liter still water sizes are now in 100% recycled & recyclable bottles.
We are also proud to offer a reusable 5-gallon bottle. When empty and returned, we sanitize and refill up to 25 times before finally recycling it.
*Bottles under 1 gallon size will be made with 100% recycled plastic; labels and caps excluded.
DESIGNED FOR RECYCLING
Our bottles are designed to the standards of Association of Plastic Recycling (APR) to be 100% recyclable, including labels that peel off easily to avoid contaminating the recycling stream.
REDUCING PLASTIC SINCE 1990
Since 1990, we’ve reduced the amount of plastic used in our half-liter bottles by over 60%.
Less than 30% of PET plastic is recycled in the U.S. That means a shocking 68% ends up in the waste stream. But together we can change this. The more plastic you recycle, the more we can use to create new recycled bottles, and the less plastic waste is generated.
It’s hard to know how to recycle properly. Did you know to empty your bottle and put the cap back on before placing it in the recycling bin? We’ve added How2Recycle information to our labels that make it clear. Find out more at How2Recycle.info
CLOSED LOOP FUND
Along with our sister brands, we’ve committed $6M to the Closed Loop Fund to build circular supply chains and help increase recycling rates in communities across America.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Drink responsibly, and always recycle your bottles.
And if you’re confused about what to recycle—we can help. We’ve partnered with The Recycling Partnership to create a recycling hotline on Instagram. Take a picture of something you're unsure about and tag @polandspringwtr with #NotTrash and we'll get it sorted!
