All bottles 100% rPET

Nutroma's goal for the future? That all the bottles are made of 100% rPET. This is how they strive for circular packaging. In other words: products that are recycled again and again so that they can make new ones. Nutroma is not quite there yet, but they're working on it. And that is an important first step.
