WHAT ARE FIJI WATER'S SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES?
By Austyn Frostad on
- FIJI Water has worked in partnership with Conservation International to conserve more than 40,000 acres of one of Fiji's largest remaining unprotected indigenous rain forest, the Sovi Basin, preventing future logging and degradation of the area. FIJI Water also partnered with local community members to plant 325,000 new trees across 2.800 acres. Currently, we are working with the Fijian government on their efforts to develop recycling initiatives across the archipelago and are a key partner in the largest recycling program in Fiji.
- Recently, as part of our longstanding commitment to environmental sustainability, FIJI Water unveiled a multifaceted initiative to transform our use of plastic while promoting a circular economy. The plan is highlighted by an aggressive timetable to include 20% recycled PET (rPET) in all plastic bottles beginning 2020, and 100% rPET by 2025. Additionally, FIJI Water will be launching large format SKUs (2.5 gallon and 5 gallon) as an alternative to single-use bottles.
