San Benedetto created the product line for its “Eco Green Project” and intervened on the 1-litre “Easy” size of still mineral water, reducing the weight by 21% and introducing the use of 30% rPET, regenerated PET derived from recycled plastic bottles. These interventions, even though in different percentages, also involved other bottle sizes from the line (1.5 litres and 2 litres). Moreover, the company calculates and compensates for produced CO2 emissions through the purchase of financing credits for projects to reduce greenhouse gases.
