Vitasoy Distilled Water launches 100% recycled bottles - promoting waste reduction
Vitasoy has recently changed the packaging material of its 430L, 700mL and 1.5L VITA
Distilled Water to rPET in Hong Kong.
5 May 2020 -Hong Kong – Vitasoy has recently launched a 100% recycled plastic bottle,
made entirely from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (“rPET”), for its VITA Distilled Water
in Hong Kong.
Affirming its commitment to enhancing the environmental performance of its product packaging
through the use of renewable or other materials, the recycled plastic bottles for VITA
Distilled Water are made of rPET, which are made of used PET bottles collected. Through a
rigorous process of screening, sorting, crushing, cleaning at high temperature, granulation,
and reshaping, rPET material can be used in beverage packaging, thus helping reduce the
plastic waste and fossil fuel consumption.
In addition to the enhancement of product packaging, Vitasoy has been actively supporting
the collection and recycling of used beverage packaging. The Company pioneered the
combined smart-reversed vending machine system in Hong Kong last year to promote
recycling through various incentives.
