Water in recycled aluminium bottles served to G7 leaders
Berrington Water has launched Re:Water, a beverage that comes in 100% recycled aluminium bottle.
The British spring water was served to global leaders at the G7 Summit held in Cornwall last week.
Matt Crocker, Director of Berrington Water and Co-founder of Re:Water, said: “We are proud to supply the G7.
“The government often talks about targets – reducing carbon emissions, moving to net zero, reducing single-use plastics. Re:Water does all that. It’s cutting single-use packaging, plastics and carbon emissions.
He added: “Firstly, we wanted something genuinely green. There are quite a few options that, when you scratch the surface, aren’t any better. Secondly, consumers need to like it. And finally, it has to be commercially viable.
“What we came up with sounds extremely simple, but it took three years to get to market.
“The lightweight aluminium bottle and aluminium cap is itself 100% recyclable and – importantly for Crocker – widely recycled. When it comes to recycling there are lots of misunderstandings. It is a complicated issue.”
