BRITA returns and recycling hand plant

Recycle BRITA filters

Kind to the planet

Being gentle to the environment, carefully using natural resources and reducing waste are at the core of our company and products. Back in 1992, we became the first company in our industry to establish a recycling programme for used cartridges. Today, a refined process ensures all parts of BRITA cartridges are properly reused or recycled. At the heart of our recycling scheme is our own regeneration system with an integrated wastewater facility at our headquarters in Taunusstein, Germany. Join our efforts to be kind to the planet: recycle your used cartridges!
