DASANI® is taking steps to reduce its impact on the planet with a major innovation in bottle design. PlantBottle® packaging is made from up to 30% plant-based material that replaces some of the non-renewable petroleum or fossil-based resources used in conventional PET plastic. Still designed to be 100% recyclable, it helps save our world’s precious resources.
Since its introduction, DASANI has reduced the weight of its bottles, because lighter weight bottles require less plastic, which helps to conserve natural resources and lower CO2 emissions. In fact, our current half liter DASANI bottles contain 45% less plastic than our original 2001 bottle.
This is only the beginning of our quest to help design a future where every plastic bottle is made from materials that are 100% renewable as well as recyclable.
PlantBottle® packaging is available in all DASANI package sizes throughout the U.S.
