ZEROPET FOUNDATION

ZeroPet is an exclusive Mountain Falls recycle initiative in partnership with Recycle 1st. Our aim is to create a sustainable, zero PET footprint. Through our self-imposed recycling targets, we are committed to eradicating our impact on the environment.Our mission is to collect 2.5 million PET bottles per year, by removing 2 PET bottles for every one we sell – that’s 50 tons of PET per year!Through our ZeroPet Foundation, we will be supporting various community projects through school education drives with the proceeds generated through PET recycling.

Of any alternative packaging solution, PET (a recyclable plastic) has the lowest carbon footprint and produces the least CO2 and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. It’s a safe, hygienic material which protects and preserves the water within. PET is easily recyclable – even more so that glass – meaning your bottle will come back to life as a whole new bottle when you no longer have a need for it.

A partnership between Mountain Falls and Recycle 1st, it's a sustainable plan to create a ZeroPet footprint. As such, we are committed to eradicating our impact on the environment through self-imposed recycling targets. Our aim is to collect 2,5 million plastic bottles per year by removing 2 plastic bottles for every one we sell which equates to 50 tons of PET per year.

Why we support PET?

PET is recognised globally as a safe packaging material for a wide variety of food products. It is safe, shatterproof, reusable and 100% recyclable back into PET products including bottles.

In our view, it makes sense from both an environmental and economic perspective to capture the raw material and energy contained in a plastic bottle and re-use it, instead of consigning it to landfill sites.

Manufacturers often opt for PET due to its strength, thermostability & transparency. It’s 10 times lighter than glass which means we’re not only reducing transport costs, but we’re also decreasing carbon emissions by 40% through transportation, less packaging and fewer trucks. PET packaging also saves packaging mass, energy and greenhouse gas carbon emissions. Without PET, we would use up to 3 times more resources.

Retailers also prefer PET bottles, as they’re light and shatterproof, which facilitates shelf stacking, ensures safety, product integrity and less breakage.

Consumers find PET bottles portable, lightweight and reusable for efficient on-the-go-hydration. It is also 100% safe and 100% recyclable.

Environmentally, PET is the most recycled packaging polymer on the shelves. The weight of PET packaging has reduced by more than 30% over the past 10 years, and when asked why we promote our unique plastic bottles, the answer is simple: they’re refillable, reusable and we recycle 2 bottles for every one that we sell.

We’ve promised to reduce our carbon footprint through our reusable PET bottles and our ZeroPet Recycling Initiative. Through our self-imposed recycling targets, we want to collect 2.5 million PET bottles per year, by removing two PET bottles for every one we sell – that’s 50 tons of PET per year.

Naturally-sourced water has one of the lowest carbon footprints of any beverage, and we want the same for our packaging too.

Mountain Falls is a member of PETCO, South Africa's national body accountable for managing and growing the collection and recycling of PET bottles after consumer use, on behalf of its members. As such, we pay a fee per tonne on all plastic bottles we produce.
This in addition to our ZeroPet Recycling Initiative.

Reduce, reuse, recycle

So with this in mind we have designed a unique Pet bottle, the result is a beautiful, reusable, recyclable bottle that maximises value and eliminates waste
