The newest bottle in Nestle Water’s Eco-Shape packaging brand is the latest milestone in a lightweighting phenomenon that has carved away 60% of the PET in the company’s original half-litre bottle.
The bottle’s cap weighs an additional gram, the company said, making the total package weight 10.3 grams.
Rollout of the its container will begin in spring 2010, North America, for three Nestle water brands, with four additional brands offering the 9.3 gram bottle later in the year.
Nestle said its new bottle is in keeping with its goal to develop a next-generation bottle made entirely from recycled materials or renewable resources by 2020.
