As innovators, Niagara is always looking for ways to improve through technological advancements and processes that help us reduce our impact on the environment.
Our Eco-Air Package® eliminates the need for a cardboard tray completely and the cases take up less pallet space which allows us to ship more water per order and helps us reduce our CO₂ emissions. The Eco-Air case wrap is also recyclable via Store Drop Off.
In the past 15 years, Niagara has reduced the amount of plastic in our Eco-Air® Bottle by over 60%**. Our bottle is not only lightweight but also 100% recyclable*. Because of the reduced weight in our plastic, we are able to:
- Transport more water per truck load which reduces CO2 emissions
- Use less plastic per bottle which helps conserve valuable resources
- Since 2009 Niagara has reduced the carbon footprint of its bottles by 59% through innovations in design, lightweighting and packaging.
In addition, we’ve reduced our label size and bottle cap size to further reduce our material use.
*Excludes label and outer packaging, which may not be recyclable in your area.**On average vs. our original 1998 500mL bottle.
Recycled Plastic Utilization
Increasing our recycled content usage has driven a 12% average reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) impact per bottle.
We are currently working with a broad set of partners and government to increase the amount of recycled content available so that we can use even more!
A PET bottle provides the smallest ratio of packaging material to product, while providing superior protection and safety. All of our bottles are 100% recyclable* and 100% BPA free.
