In Time for Earth Day Brands Within Reach Announces 100% Recycled* Volvic Bottles (Made of 100% rPET**)

On the occasion of Earth Day, Brands Within Reach (BWR), the exclusive North American distributor of Danone Volvic water, is proud to announce the US launch of Volvic’s 100% rPET* bottles, made from 100% recycled materials, in April 2021. BWR welcomes Volvic's commitment to help reduce CO2 emissions through the use of rPET material.

“Volvic is a natural spring water - a pure force from nature. With the introduction of the rPET* Volvic bottle, we are offering US consumers the natural spring water paired with more sustainable packaging. This move represents our commitment to a more responsible approach to nature for the benefit for our consumers,” said Olaf Zachert, CEO of BWR.

Volvic natural spring water comes from a well-protected natural volcanic ecosystem in the heart of the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Park, France. Volvic water is filtered through six layers of mineral-rich volcanic rock for about five years. This filtration process gives Volvic a unique mineral composition and gives it its pure, fresh taste. The ecosystem and the filtration process of Volvic ensure naturally occurring electrolytes and a balanced neutral pH value of seven. This makes Volvic water a great option for people of all ages and contributes to overall hydration status, important for normal physical and mental performance.

In June 2020, Volvic achieved B CorpTM Certification *** and CO2 neutrality certification **** by The Carbon Trust as part of its sustainability efforts.
