Zero-Waste Water Bottles

Ground Water Stewardship
“The Water Guy” ™ takes ground water stewardship very seriously and understands the importance of protecting water sources. All water sources to the bottling operations have undergone professional hydrogeological evaluations to assess any potential impact on area ground water.
Our bottling plants use ultra-efficient equipment, processes and methods to reduce water usage and waste. “The Water Guy”™ is a proud supporter of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) awareness program “WaterSense.” The program rallies around awareness of simple steps to save water and protect the environment. “The Water Guy”™ encourages these same principles by promoting water conservation and environmental responsibility on our website and social media outlets.
