Why are some people opposed to Nestlé bottling water?

Some people are worried about the impact bottled water has on water availability, on people and the environment. We are too.

That’s why, wherever we bottle water, we monitor how much we use to ensure there is no negative impact on local watersheds and aquifers. Moreover, we work closely with local communities to ensure that people’s access to water is unaffected.

In June 2021, we announced that we will advance the regeneration of the water cycle to help create a positive water impact everywhere our waters business operates by 2025. That means that through the projects we will implement, we will help nature retain more water than our waters business uses in its operations.

Remember, bottled water is never wasted. People drink it. It also takes less water, less plastic and less energy to manufacture than most other bottled beverages.
