Nestle Waters Canada, Canada’s marketshare-leading manufacturer and distributor of healthy beverage choices, and Atlantic Packaging Products Ltd, one of Canada’s largest producers of paper and plastic packaging, have announced that Atlantic Packaging has awarded the Company its 2009 Certificate of Environmental Sustainability Award.
The Certificate of Environmental Sustainability Award recognizes companies that are committed to sustainable packaging practices. In 2009, Nestle Waters Canada used 100 per cent recycled corrugated trays and pads supplied by Atlantic Packaging for its domestic waters, saving the equivalent of 55,824 mature trees (enough to cover 29 football fields.) This usage also represents the equivalent diversion of approximately 93 truckloads of waste that would have been otherwise destined for landfill.
