Our 500 mL bottle of Deer Park® 100% Natural Spring Water has one of the lightest carbon footprints of all comparable sized leading bottled beverages.1
50% Recycled Plastic*
In February 2011, we proudly introduced 500 mL bottles of Deer Park® 100% Natural Spring Water made with 50% recycled plastic*! These 50% recycled plastic* bottles are available in Baltimore and Washington D.C. in convenient locations where Deer Park can already be purchased.
Making bottles with recycled plastic reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 25% on average compared to making bottles from all-new materials.2 We hope to broaden the use of recycled materials in our bottles, but we need your help. The more you recycle, the more recycled plastic is available for reuse.
Proof Recycling Works!
Ever wonder how the bottles you recycle are processed for reuse? Hover over the images to see how your recycling efforts help us reduce our environmental impact.
1. Your plastic bottles and other recycled materials are taken to a recycling plant.
2. Plastic bottles are ground down, washed, and then processed into flake or pellet form.
3. The pellets are turned into new products like furniture, clothing, construction materials, and new bottles.
4. 50% recycled plastic* bottles are filled with Deer Park® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water and delivered to your local store.
5. You purchase and enjoy our water packaged in 50% recycled plastic* and remember to recycle the bottle so it can be used again.

Recycling is the cornerstone of a sustainable society and every bottle of Deer Park® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water is recyclable. When we all recycle, the materials can be used again and again to make new items like furnishings, clothing and new bottles.
Although the PET recycling rate has nearly doubled in five years, it is still only at 30%2, and that’s not good enough. Deer Park is working with partners with the goal of raising recycling rates to 60% or better for PET beverage bottles by 2018.
If you keep recycling, we’ll keep reusing – Together we can make a difference!
