Stewardship of Resources
Crystal Springs® is committed to improving the environment through resource conservation, environmental stewardship and environmental sustainability. We are working to reduce waste, reuse materials and reduce our carbon footprint through innovative packaging and delivery methods.
Here are some of the ways Crystal Springs® is working today for a cleaner tomorrow:
- Our packaging is 100% recyclable including the plastic bottles, caps and outer wraps.
- Over the past 10 years, we've reduced the amount of plastic in our .5L bottles by more than 50% and our caps by 25%.
- We ship products in corrugated boxes that are reusable and recyclable.
- Our shipping pallets are designed to be used five times longer than regular exchange pallets.
- More than 30% of our delivery vehicles use cleaner-burning diesel alternative fuel.
Our Green Efforts
Crystal Springs® is dedicated to using high-quality, cost-effective and reusable bottled water containers. We clean and sanitize our 3- & 5-gallon water bottle containers and refill them 40 to 50 times. Most of these water bottles are recycled at the end of their lives to make carpet, toys, tool handles, bird feeders and other items – which is why they are not typically found in landfills.
