Our Arrowhead® spring water heritage began more than a century ago, and the health of our springs is our top priority. Our goal is to continue to provide Arrowhead® spring water for generations to come.
We base our operations on something tried and true and much older than we are: nature itself. Our team of five field experts, including Larry, are dedicated to making sure we’re doing right by Earth’s land and resources. They’re constantly monitoring the springs, and always keeping up with how the water cycle is affecting them.
Environmental responsibility starts at the corporate level. And Nestlé Waters North America is leading the charge with 9 LEED certified bottling plants across the U.S. and plans for more on the way. As a whole, Nestlé Waters takes 0.003% of California's yearly total water usage. But we know many people still have questions, especially during a time of drought.
Caring for our springs and supporting local waterways is a high priority for us. Reducing waste and promoting water bottle recycling is another way we strive to make a positive impact. Our 8-ounce, 12-ounce and half liter bottles are made with 50% recycled PET plastic, and in 2016 we will expand the use of 50% rPET across our most popular single-serve water bottle sizes. This change will increase our use of recycled plastic by 40%.
The San Bernardino area surrounding our namesake spring is near and dear to us. That’s why we are proud to partner with Inland Empire Waterkeeper to help clean the Upper Santa Ana River Watershed. It’s just another way we stay committed to the community and to California.
