Fiji Water, a U.S.-based bottled water company, recently announced a complex sustainability drive to support a circular financial system, with the goal of making all plastic bottles from 100 percent recycled plastic by the year 2025. As a result, the corporation has set a 2020 goal of using 20 percent recycled plastic bottles in its products. To achieve its environmental goals, Fiji Water will use new packaging modernisms and less plastic. New packaging and bottle developments will be used to significantly reduce the quantity of plastic used in all lines of the company.
Fiji Water plans to introduce a 2.5-gallon refrigerator packaging and a 5-gallon dispenser packaging alternative to replace single-use bottles. Both options will use at least 76% less plastic, while the latter choice is anticipated to use 38 less 500 ML bottles of plastic. the transition to 100 percent rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) is essential to our inclusive approach toward sustainability,” said Elizabeth Stephenson, president of Fiji Water. This planet’s well-being relies heavily on environmental sustainability and the preservation of nature.
In a similar vein, the proprietors of Fiji Water recently contributed $750 million to Caltech to help fund climate research. In a “record-breaking” $750 million contribution, The Wonderful Company’s shareholders have given Caltech an unprecedented amount of money to support environmental sustainability research. According to Caltech authorities, this grant is Caltech’s largest ever and the second-largest ever given to a U.S. academic institution. Caltech has declared that this is also the largest grant ever made to ecological sustainability research. To begin the Resnick Center, Stewart and Lynda Resnick pledged this generous donation.
