High­land Spring ready to pi­lot 100% re­cy­cled bot­tles

Evening Times - - NEWS -

WA­TER brand High­land Spring is to trial the use of 100 per cent re­cy­cled plas­tic bot­tles to help cut ocean pol­lu­tion.

The move, which the brand be­lieves is a first for the UK bottled wa­ter mar­ket, will be­gin with the June launch of a 500ml “eco bot­tle” in se­lected Tesco stores in Scot­land, fol­lowed by Sains­bury’s stores in Eng­land. The bot­tle will be clearly la­belled to dif­fer­en­ti­ate it from other plas­tic bot­tles and con­sumers will be in­vited to give feed­back on­line.

The com­pany’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Les Mont­gomery said: “Plas­tic is a valu­able re­source that shouldn’t be treated as waste and we en­cour­age ev­ery­one to get in­volved.”
