MONTREAL — This Summer, ESKA will relaunch ESKA Sparkling using 100% recycled plastic bottles. For ESKA, this marks the complete elimination of all first use plastic bottles across its entire product line — a commitment made with the transition of its natural spring water bottles to recycled plastic in 2020.

ESKA Sparkling is carbonated natural spring water available in Original and natural Lemon, Lime and Orange fruit flavors.

The recycled plastic in ESKA’s spring and sparkling water bottles are sourced from Quebec’s Blue Box and other recycling systems. The rPET bottles are themselves recyclable, which is part of the brand’s commitment to environmental sustainability and contributing to the circular economy. In fact, these recycled PET bottles in turn become new bottles, that means continuous reuse — an idea that ESKA calls the “Recycle of Life”.

“Preserving and protecting the environment is a core value for ESKA,” says Michel McArthur, the company’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are truly proud to have successfully converted 100% of our bottles to recycled plastic while maintaining a premium product from a glacial esker,” he concludes. “We will no longer use any new plastic in the manufacturing of our bottles.”
