As a water company that relies on nature, we take responsibility to help protect it. MadeBetter is our pledge to a healthy planet and healthy communities. Here’s what we’re doing.
MEET OUR BOTTLES
Like many of you, we’re on a journey to reduce waste. That’s why our 20-ounce, 700 mL, 1 Liter and 1.5 Liter still water sizes are now in better bottles, made from 100% recycled plastic* & 100% recyclable when empty, so they can be transformed into new bottles over and over again.
We are also proud to offer a reusable 5-gallon bottle. When empty and returned, we sanitize and refill up to 25 times before finally recycling it.
*labels and caps excluded.
CARING FOR WATER
The Ozarka® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water you're drinking was carefully sourced from one of our three Texas springs. Our spring guardians, a team of hydrogeologists and field experts, monitor water flows, track precipitation levels and even study the areas’ biodiversity. All of this is to help ensure the springs and surrounding areas are sustainably managed. And to get the highest quality water delivered fresh for you.
SHOWING UP FOR COMMUNITIES
We’ve called Texas home for over forty years, and we’re proud to provide over 1,300 local jobs and millions in annual spending to support local Texas businesses.
And we know how essential water is, especially during times of crisis. We’ve donated millions of bottles of water since 2018 to Texas communities during natural disasters and emergencies, and will continue to be there when support is needed.
Visit the pledge page and make recycling a part of your own pledge to help our communities be made for a better tomorrow. For every pledge made, we will donate a bottle of water to a community in need.
RECYCLING MATTERS – JOIN US BY RECYCLING
Unfortunately, less than 30% of PET plastic is recycled in the U.S. That means a shocking 68% ends up in the waste stream. But together we can change this. The more plastic you recycle, the more we can use to create new recycled bottles, and the less plastic waste is generated.
If you need more recycling tips, look for the How2Recycle info on our labels or visit berecycled.org for details specific to your community.

It’s hard to know how to recycle properly. Did you know to empty your bottle and put the cap back on before placing it in the recycling bin? We’ve added How2Recycle information to our labels that make it clear. Find out more at How2Recycle.info
CLOSED LOOP FUND
Along with our sister brands, we’ve committed $6M to the Closed Loop Fund to build circular supply chains and help increase recycling rates in communities across America.
