A bottle 100% recycling PET
The bottle is indispensable to guarantee the water quality and its availability until you drink it.
We decide to replace PVC by PET and this has been in place since 1992, this was considered a revolution for the bottled water insdustry. Perfectly neutral, PET don’t contain bisphenol or phtalate.
Flexible, light, neutral, PET plastic allows the weight of bottles to be reduced and so reduces the environmental impact.
100% recyclable, PET gives water bottles a second life. Once sorted by the consumer, the empty plastic bottle is transformed back into a new plastic material … which can be used to make many everyday objects or … Even better, new bottles!
In 2016, Sources ALMA implemented for some of its brands, a very unique cap that is attached to the bottle. The new cap means that it stays with the bottle so that it is no longer lost in nature. An innovation that inspired the European Parliament to make the attached cap mandatory for all drinks from 2024.
Together, let’s respect nature!
Little by little, our still water bottles (Cristaline, Thonon, Pierval …) equip themselves with an eco-responsible cap. Why is this cap environmentally friendly and important to Sources ALMA environmental impact.
In addition, this cap is:
–Practical: it opens in a “clic” and closes itself when you push it back and hear the “clic”. The opening is much easier than traditional caps for children and adults! It closes in a “clac”.
–More hygienic: no risk of dropping the cap or contaminating it by coming into contact with a dirty surface as it never leaves the bottle!
Sources ALMA are doing all they can to develop a respectful activity for the environment, responsible and efficient. In this way, we choose optimum transport and expedition solutions to minimize the environmental footprint.
We emphasise rail transport and road-rail transport when as soon as we can
Unique multi regional implementation of the Cristaline factories offers to serve the customers faster, reducing the distance travelled and favoring direct deliveries to the store.
We have increased the quantity of loaded merchandises by lorry by increasing the number of bottles by pallet, that permits minimize carbon emissions
We require lorries with Euro6 standards to minimize the fuel consumption
We also introduced gas lorries on our fleet
