Environmental Impact of Plastic

Nestlé is in a position to benefit from the wide-scale adoption of reusable food and goods containers jars. There is no doubt that the environmental impact of plastic is now recognized, and the associated health risks are becoming better understood. Indeed, Nestlé’s own global environmental strategy has acknowledged that plastic has “unintended environmental and health consequences.”

Plastic is a powerful material that can be molded into a wide range of forms. It is light, strong, and very durable. Plastic is, of course, cheap, but it is also a very inefficient material. Plastic does not biodegrade, it does not absorb water, it does not transmit flavors, and it does not retain heat. Its very fragility is a serious drawback. And, of course, the vast amount of plastic used is also a serious environmental problem.

By using biodegradable packaging for their mineral water, Nestlé is taking a significant step in the right direction. But Nestlé has the capacity to do much more. It can produce the plastic it uses in large quantities. It can then market the containers as “eco-friendly” and help customers to make a transition to reusable packaging.
