The Vittel GO system consists of a reusable hard protective case designed to hold 50cl refills of Vittel natural mineral water that are made with 40 per cent less plastic than a traditional 50cl Vittel bottle. As the bottles are made with as little recycled plastic as possible, they are very flexible and light, and must be used with the reusable protective case to make it easy to drink the water.

The 100 per cent recyclable 1-litre Vittel Hybrid bottle is made from two types of materials.

The first is an ultra-thin plastic bottle made entirely from recycled content, and is said to use twice the amount of reduced plastic than that of a classic 1L bottle. The second is a fibre-based material, which surrounds the plastic layer, and is made from 100 per cent recycled cardboard and old newspapers.

Somehow we just can’t see these taking off.   The first has a reusable plastic case.  That is asking for more pllastic litter as those break.
