Leaner, meaner Evian!

Danone has outlined plans to use 50% rPET material content in a new, lighter-weight 1.5l Evian water bottle that will hit shelves in 2011.

As well as improved environmental impacts, Danone has redesigned the structure to make it easier to use and to crush after use - reduce, re-use, recycle!

The new version of the bottle is 11% lighter than the previous bottle, weighing 28.6g rather than 32g. To encourage consumers to continue to recycle and create a 'virtuous cycle' that will continue with other bottles the new bottle will crush length-wise!

Want to follow in Evian's footsteps and reduce your packaging? Over the years Duo has researched and developed a range of polythene blends to improve the material strength at thinner microns. Improving the strength of thinner micron material not only reduces the volume of natural material needed to manufacture your packaging product but also decreases your volume of packaging waste. To receive samples of our stronger, thinner mailing bags please email enquiries@duo-uk.co.uk and we will send you a pack to trial.EVIAN
