We care about our planet
At Watermarket & Cheddar Water we are very conscious of the impact we have on the environment, to offset this we’ve recently installed a 50 Kilo Watt Solar Array to power our new state of the art production facility, helping to reduce our carbon footprint. We do not print and post any paper invoices or quotes, everything is done electronically!
The water is drawn from certified Organic Land and no chemicals or fertilisers are used. The land from which our Natural Spring Water is sourced completed ORGANIC conversion to the highest standard on the 20th September 2007.

Our bottles, caps and labels are all 100% recyclable. The bottles and caps are made of PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) and our labels are made of PP (Polypropylene). These materials are all recyclable.
How does PET plastic become a new product? It’s a four step process that begins with you!
- In order to give birth to a new product, used PET containers must first be properly disposed of by companies or individuals for recycling collection.
- The collected PET bottles are then sent to a sorting plant where objects are separated according to their materials. Recovered PET bottles are compacted into a bundle and are sent to a reclaimer – the factory that turns used bottles into PET flakes.
- The first thing the reclaimer has to do is de-bale the bundles and re-sort the material to make sure the final product will be as pure as possible. The de-baled bundles are then pre-washed and shredded into flakes. The flakes are again washed, dried, and then stocked and sold.
- The real recycling starts when the solid flakes, the raw material, are used to manufacture a new product. Recycled PET bottles can be turned into polyester fibers, which are used as a base for products such as fleece coats, clothing, pillows and carpets. PET can also be recycled back into new, single-serve PET bottles that are convenient, safe and recyclable.
