Ice River Springs keeps its circular business flowing
Ice River Springs, a private-label bottled water producer with operations in Canada and the US, stands out from the competition in many ways, including its focus on sustainability. Their bottles are made from 100% recycled material and are 100% recyclable. Working with CHEP, with its pooled (shared and reusable) pallets, was a strategic choice. Since Ice River Springs produces recycled bottles in a closed-loop production process at its Blue Mountain Plastics plant, CHEP pallets are used to move goods around the company’s production and distribution facilities, in addition to delivering the finished product to stores. “Working with CHEP and Zero Waste World is a natural partnership for us. Ice River Springs is built around a sustainable framework, and we’ve proven it leads to profit.” Crystal Howe, Sustainability Manager Ice River Springs. In a nine-year period, Ice River Springs achieved significant environmental savings. It avoided more than 703,000 kilograms of CO2 and eliminated more than 907,000 kilograms of solid waste from landfill.
