Water and soft drinks maker Radnor Hills is moving most of its PET bottles to 51% recycled plastic (RPET) as part of continuing efforts to combat plastic waste.

The Wales-based company began RPET production at the start of July, with its 50cl water bottles the first to make the move. Radnor Hills hopes to move all plastic products over to RPET by the end of August.

It warned that customers might notice a slight colour difference with the new bottles as suppliers work to try to make RPET bottles clearer.

"We are very proud as a business to have taken this next step towards a more sustainable future and we hope this encourages more people to recycle their plastic bottles," said William Watkins, Radnor Hills MD.

"The use of RPET saves raw materials, reduces waste and creates a better environment for us all."

The company said it was also working to create a "closed loop" system with suppliers for all waste created on site, and would achieve zero to landfill on all waste by the end of 2018.
