Letter to Nestle Waters

"To Whom It May Concern:

I've noticed on packages of Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water that there is pronounced statements about reducing plastic. Yet to me it appearss as if package sizes are decreasing and that these smaller packages are encouraging users to consume more.

For example in 2005 (ish) the clear Arrowhead plastic bottle that held one gallon was reduced to hold less than 1 gallon. Now in 2011 it appears as if the original one gallon container begot the current 3 liter container. Furthermore it appears as if the current 3 liter containers uses up more plastic because it needs to because of a large conical invert.

In my opinion this invert is suspicious. In a way it tricks users and longtime consumers that they are getting the same product, yet this slight difference has ramifications for not only the planet but for shareholders.

I would like to know more information about this product (3L bottles). Specifically the different sizes this style of container has been. Also, I would like to see if reserach is done to produce optimal sized containers for Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water Containers.

Yours Truly"

*Note-Arrowhead is a brand of Nestle Waters which is actually based in Connecticut.
