Because they understand the vital importance of water stewardship, bottled water companies are committed to using their water sources in a conscientious manner. Bottled water producers are deliberate with their water use — so much so that researchers universally acknowledge that bottled water is the packaged beverage with the lowest water use ratio. To make 1 liter of finished bottled water product for consumption, bottled water companies use (on average) 1.39 liters of water — and that includes the 1 liter of water that you drink.
Of all the water used in the United States each year, only 0.01% is used in the production of bottled water. Using such a small amount is only possible because bottled water companies weave environmental stewardship practices throughout all of their business operations, including source selection, production processes, and product delivery.

When looking to make healthy lifestyle choices, one of the simplest changes you can make is to drink water instead of less-healthy sugary beverages. Most Americans drink both tap and bottled water, and because consumers are increasingly choosing bottled water instead of other, less-healthy drinks, bottled water is the No.1 packaged beverage in the United States (by volume) for the fifth consecutive year (replacing carbonated soft drinks). An additional benefit of making bottled water your drink of choice is that it has the lowest water use and energy use of all packaged beverages — which means choosing bottled water is better for you and the environment.

During those times, bottled water is the best option to deliver clean, safe drinking water quickly into affected areas. Learn More

As the quintessential portable and affordable beverage, bottled water prompted the formation of new habits and even new usage occasions. Suitable for consumption at any time of the day or night, and not necessarily requiring to be kept ice cold, bottled water became the preferred beverage option for all consumers — not just consumers aiming to reduce caloric intake or lessen artificial sweetener usage.
