Sustainability & Environmental Stewardship

Manage Water for Long-Term Sustainability

Our water site sources for Poland Spring® and Arrowhead® are the first Platinum-Certified by the Alliance for Water Stewardship in the world.1

Support Earth-Friendly Efforts

In 2020, ReadyRefresh® earned the Opens in new windowCarbonNeutral® company certification in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, a global standard for carbon neutral programs.2

Give Every 3- and 5-Gallon Bottle a Circular Life

  • We pick up your empty bottles. Then, we clean, sanitize and refill each one—up to 30 times.

  • Some bottles "work" for years before they "retire".

  • Once their "life" is complete, we recycle each bottle.

Improve Packaging

  • We're exploring new packaging and new ways to help minimize our environmental impact.

  • In December 2020, 20% of our plastic bottles were manufactured with rPET (Recycled PET plastic) with a goal of 50% by 2025.

  • Many of our brands—including a range of bottle sizes from Poland Spring®, Ozarka® and Zephyrhills®—are made completely BPA-free.3

Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

  • Recently, we implemented "dynamic routing" to meet evolving customer needs; this saved 600,000 miles worth of fuel for customer delivery trips in 2019.4

  • ReadyRefresh is on track to convert 50% of its beverage delivery trucks to propane this year, which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by almost 10% compared to conventional fuel.5

  • Each month, ReadyRefresh transports water by train, saving approximately 100 tons of carbon compared to traveling by truck.4

Donate Millions of Bottles of Water

  • Since 2018, ReadyRefresh has donated approximately 20 million bottles of water to support food banks, help centers, churches and communities in need.
