Nestlé Waters North America (NWNA) announced in a press release that they aim to achieve 25% recycled plastic across its US domestic portfolio by 2021.

The leading beverage company also announced plans to continue expanding its use of recycled materials in the coming years and set a further goal to reach 50% recycled plastic by 2025.

NWNA stated that the company’s use of food-grade recycled plastic, or rPET, is planned to nearly quadruple in less than three years. In order to achieve this goal, NWNA will strengthen its relationship with key supplier, Plastrec , a Canada-based company that produces food-grade recycled PET resin from post-consumer containers.

The company’s announcement came on the heels of the agreement signed by Nestlé Waters North America and CarbonLITE, a recycled PET (rPET) supplier. The agreement included the construction of a third recycling facility in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, the US.
