Making a change for the good

500ml PET Range.jpg

At South Downs Water we are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

We deliver locally within the South Downs Region cutting vehicle emissions; we source all our bottles, caps and labels from the UK and most recently we have made a small change to our PET Still bottles that will have a big impact on the environment.

Working with our bottle supplier we have managed to reduce the amount of plastic in our PET bottles by creating a “Still Only” 500ml bottle.

The new bottle still features our iconic criss-cross design, it simply has less plastic. We have achieved this by changing the design of the base on the Still bottle to a new flatter design.

The Sparkling bottles will keep the existing “petaloid” design as this is necessary for our carbonation process.

All our PET is BPA free, it is the most easily recycled making it some of the friendliest there is.

Our Glass and PET bottle suppliers use recycled materials. We recycle our 19 Litre bottles in house and we return or re-use the plastic pellets.

Our goal is to become a carbon-neutral company and we are taking steps every day to achieve this.
