Bottled water is a safe, healthy, and convenient packaged food product, which is comprehensively regulated at both the federal and state levels.  IBWA represents our industry’s uncompromising commitment to the safety and availability of bottled water worldwide.

One of the simplest changes a person can make for leading a healthier life is to switch to drinking water instead of other beverages that are heavy with sugar and calories.  For those who want to eliminate or moderate calories, sugar, caffeine, artificial flavors or colors, and other ingredients from their diet, choosing water is the right choice – whether from the tap or in a bottle.

Take a look at some reports and studies that support water's healthy role in our lives and focus on the facts behind bottled water. We even have a helpful and shareable infographic that uses third-party data and research to explain bottled water's big health benefits and small environmental footprint.

In today’s on-the-go society, most of what we drink comes in a package. Attacks on bottled water only help to promote less healthy options among other packaged beverages, like soda and juices, which have more packaging, more ingredients, and greater environmental impacts than bottled water.
