International Bottled Water Association

The authoritative source of information about all types of bottled waters, IBWA members include U.S. and International bottlers, distributors, and suppliers. IBWA represents our industry’s uncompromising commitment to the safety and availability of bottled water worldwide.

Focused on the Environment

The bottled water industry is a strong supporter of our environment and our natural resources. Bottled water companies manage resources responsibly by investing in technology and practices that improve water quality and conservation.

A life cycle assessment conducted by Quantis in 2010 shows bottled water's environmental footprint is the lowest of any packaged beverage. Key findings from this study show that water is the least environmentally impactful beverage and bottled water is the most environmentally responsible packaged drink choice.


The Healthy Choice

To lead a healthier life, one of the simplest changes you can make is drinking water instead of other beverages that are heavy with sugar and calories.

So, if you want to eliminate or moderate calories, sugar, caffeine, artificial flavors or colors, and other ingredients from your diet, choosing water is a right decision.

And, in today’s on-the-go society, where most of what we drink comes in a package, bottled water is always the smart and healthy choice.

Uses water responsibly

Did you know that out of all the water used in the United States each year, bottled water accounts for only 0.01%?

There's a lot of misleading information circulating on social media and internet sites that falsely reports that the bottled water industry is using up available water supplies and selling products for big profits.

The truth is that bottled water industry cares deeply about protecting water resources generally, but especially in the communities where they have invested.
