At Eska, we’re deeply dedicated to letting nature follow her true nature. We embrace the (re)cycle of life by taking a number of important steps to protect and preserve our planet. These steps include:
Our bottles are made from glass, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic and recycled plastic (rPET). When you place an Eska bottle in your recycling bin or bin, you can rest assured that it is fit for recycling.
We’ve started making our spring water bottles with high-quality, food grade, 100% recycled plastic (rPET) and we’re working towards making our entire range of spring water bottles from rPET.
We’ve proudly joined forces with Plastrec, a Quebec-based manufacturer of recycled plastic. Our partnership supports Canada’s circular economy, reduces our carbon footprint and creates local jobs.
We work with environmental experts and regional authorities to constantly assess the impact of our activities on Eska’s natural spring and the virgin forest surrounding it in northern Quebec. We minimize soil contamination and we regularly conduct analyses on the esker to measure its level and safeguard it from contaminants.
Follow your true nature and help protect our beautiful planet with Eska.
