Committed to our home state

The ARROWHEAD brand started in California over 120 years ago. For decades, we’ve worked hard to respect and care for the brand’s mountain spring sources and their surrounding environments. We take our time researching, evaluating, and carefully selecting mountain springs that can be managed for long-term sustainability.

Why Plastic is a resource

All plastic is not created equal. Some plastic, like the durable #1 PET (called rPET when recycled), is inherently reusable and can be more easily recycled and reused without losing its functionality. By using rPET in our bottles, we can have a measurable impact on reducing our production of greenhouse gases and reducing the amount of plastic in landfills.

  • One of the most commonly used plastics for single-use products.

  • 91.6% less energy is needed to make rPET vs. virgin (or entirely new) plastics.

  • The energy saved by recycling one PET bottle will power a computer for 25 minutes.

For more information about the recycling process and plastics check out the GOOD guide to recycling.

Our Partnerships In California

In 2015, we donated more than 3 million bottles of ARROWHEAD to communities in need throughout the state. For us, being an active member of the community goes beyond donations. It also means working together with other local groups who share similar values and goals. We’re proud to call the following organizations our partners:

  • Southern California Mountains Foundation

    The Southern California Mountains Foundation (SCMF) is a non-profit organization that aims to connect communities with public land and foster life-long commitments to environmental stewardship. We have been partners for over 20 years, and recently donated 90 acres of land in the Angeles Oaks area of the San Bernardino Mountains to the Foundation to contribute to their ongoing efforts.
