Like all packaged goods, bottled water impacts the environment. We’re taking steps to improve the impact of our packaging – from sourcing and processing to the end of the packaging life cycle.
There is a reason why we use recyclable plastic bottles: it’s safe, lightweight, transparent, and resilient. Plus, plastic, like glass and aluminum, can be recycled and re-purposed. Our half-liter water bottles are made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a kind of polyester plastic. PET bottles are lightweight and stable and have a lighter environmental impact than packaging materials such as glass and aluminum. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also approves PET bottles as safe for food containers and packaging.
