Major water brands like Coca-Cola’s Dasani, PepsiCo’s Aquafina and Nestle’s Pure Life products started making the switch as early as 2019 and BlueTriton joins dozens of other brands to follow suit.

BlueTriton also says it has partnered with global charity 1% for the Planet, committing to donate 1% of aluminum bottle sales to environmental groups that are part of the charity’s network.

Aluminum bottles and cans are slowly replacing plastic bottles, which are coming under increased scrutiny for health and sustainability concerns.

Americans throw away 60 million plastic water bottles every day, with an estimated 80% of them not recycled. Aluminum bottles and cans have a higher cost, but also have a much higher rate of recycling and can be recycled again and again.
