Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water announced that it has dramatically increased the amount of recycled plastic used in its bottle production. Thanks to the high recycling rate of California residents, and with help from its strategic partner CarbonLITE, Arrowhead now ensures that 9 out of 10 of its Arrowhead bottles made in California incorporate 50% post-consumer rPET.

Arrowhead began using rPET in its half-liter bottles — its most popular size — four years ago. The increase in recycled content is part of a larger effort to reduce plastic waste by Nestlé Waters North America, which produces Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water.

Arrowhead partners with Los Angeles-based rPET producer CarbonLITE Industries LLC to provide the rPET material used in its bottles. The recycled materials are collected primarily in California.

Through its partnership with CarbonLITE, Arrowhead has kept a significant amount of PET bottles from ending up in the waste stream. CarbonLITE estimates that, since 2012, these 86 million pounds of recycled plastic have saved 69,660 tons of carbon emissions versus the use of virgin plastic.
