Warning: The 500mL cap is a small part and poses a CHOKING HAZARD, particularly for children.

Starting in 2011, we will be using the smaller cap on our 16 ounce, 20 ounce, 1 Liter, and 1.5 Liter bottle sizes and as these products are produced, you'll see a similar label statement on these products as well.

live Green

There are many efforts we can take to support our living, breathing earth. Part of Nestlé Pure Life’s commitment to preserving and protecting the environment includes national campaigns to promote more efficient programs for recycling.

Here are few ways you and your family can live more green:

We are often wasteful without realizing it. There are so many household items that can be repurposed and reused.

Paper: conserve paper by printing on two sides, use the back of old documents for scratch paper by the telephone, and reuse gift wrap.

Water: Try not to take excessively long showers, sweep rather than hose down the patio and drive way, and turn off the running water while brushing teeth or doing dishes.

Fabric: If you can’t give old clothes and linens to a charitable organization or people in need, jeans can be converted to shorts, fabrics can be used for gift wrap, t-shirts make great dust rags and window washers, and worn out towels are good for clean up duties around the house.

Recycle at Home
Less than half of the homes in the U.S. have curbside recycling. But that shouldn’t prevent you from doing your part. Take glass back to the grocery store for redemption, and collect all bottles, aluminum cans, plastic and paper so you can take them to the nearest recycling center. To make this an activity your kids are eager to participate in, consider using the money you get back from turning in recycled goods to buy a treat that day. If “recycle day” equals “ice cream day,” they’ll be enthusiastic about their recycling efforts.

Recycle at School
Encourage local schools to adopt recycling programs and help organize fundraisers to buy recycling containers they can use. Educate kids on the benefits of recycling with instruction and field trips to science centers, state parks, or recycling processing plants.

Walk or Bike:
Why not leave the car in the garage and, instead, walk or bike around more places in the neighborhood. You can also enjoy nature with your kids by taking a walk around the park, going for a hike or visiting the beach, lake or river.

Plant a Garden:
When you grow fruit, vegetables and herbs at home, you’re not only getting fresher, more flavorful food, you’re helping to reduce emissions caused by transport to market, and you’re reducing the amount of resources needed to grow these items commercially.

Composting is the decomposition of organic materials to make an earthy, dark, crumbly substance that is excellent for adding to houseplants or enriching garden soil. It is the way to recycle your yard and kitchen wastes, and is a critical step in reducing the volume of garbage needlessly sent to landfills. There are dozens of books and websites dedicated to composting if you’d like to learn more. These common household items are great candidates for composting:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Fruit peelings
  • Tea leaves
  • Egg shells
  • Grass
  • Hay
  • Leaves

Clean Naturally
Many household items can be used to clean the house. Not only do natural cleaners keep you from breathing noxious chemicals, they are safe for the environment when rinsed down the drain.

  • Baking Soda is a great non-abrasive cleaner you can use to scour countertops and ovens, or add to the laundry for odor removal.
  • Vinegar or Lemon Juice works well to remove hard water deposits, dissolve build-up of dirt on wood, and remove tarnish on silver.
  • Essential oils such as lavender, tea tree and clove are natural fungicides.
  • Coarse salt works great to scrub copper pots and ceramic baking dishes.
