Environment

Every effort delivers on a promise.

Environmental sustainability is a daily commitment that promises a better tomorrow. We continually seek ways to deliver on our promise to protect the planet we all call home. After all, that's a promise worth keeping.

Responsible Sourcing.

We seek to source all of our bottled waters responsibly. Our water sources are carefully selected and closely monitored to ensure consistent quality and sustainable yield. And, we align our company with brands that do the same.

Reduce and recycle.

We reduce environmental impact by using less. Over the last 10 years, we have reduced the amount of plastic in our U.S.- and Canada-branded 0.5-liter bottles by more than 50% and the caps by 25%. All packaging is 100% recyclable, including the bottles, caps and outerwrap.* Plus, our U.S.-branded 1- and 2.5-gallon bottles are shipped in reusable, recyclable corrugated boxes. To reduce total weight and waste, we've made our plastic cups lighter, too.

Reuse and repurpose.

Our U.S. and Canadian branded 3 gallon (11.3 liter) and 5 gallon (18.9 liter) water bottles are reused up to 50 times. At the end of their usable life, the bottles are recycled and used to make new products. This closed-loop recycling system allows us to reduce our carbon footprint by assuring that bottles do not go to landfills.

Efficient Transport.

We are currently working on multiple fronts to improve transport efficiency. Recent vehicle purchases promise a 40% increase in fuel productivity. To reduce delivery mileage, our representatives use smartphones to optimize their routes. When considering new water sources, we search for suitable locations near existing bottling plants. We are also developing specialized load/unload procedures and reducing transport distances from springs to bottling plants.

*Recycling facilities may not be available in your community.

Social

Every commitment strengthens communities.

We feel a strong sense of commitment to local communities. And, the world at large. Why? Because we're more than a socially responsible bottled water company, we are part of the community.

Community wellness.

Hydration is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. So, we provide sponsorship to local events such as 5ks, volunteer events and more.

Supporting the cause

To fully defeat cancer, we believe in fighting the good fight. Our Athena® bottled water was Created for the Cause®, and we recently contributed $3 million on behalf of Athena to hospital oncology centers across the U.S. Also, DS Services is proud to sponsor the American Cancer Society Hope Ball each year.

Times of need.

When disaster strikes, safe drinking water is a vitally important resource. That's where our regional brands provide needed relief. They regularly support humanitarian causes such as donating to relief efforts for communities ravaged by hurricanes.

Economic

Every promise embraces our responsibility.

Water is essential to our lives. That's exactly why we take so many steps to guarantee we produce quality bottled water that meets the highest safety standards. Furthermore, DS Services is committed to full compliance with corporate financial regulations.

Dedicated to quality.

Is our bottled water good for you? You can rest assured. We use certified laboratories to ensure our bottled water products meet strict state and federal food and beverage quality and safety standards. DS Services proudly includes accurate sourcing information on all labels. The bottled water brands manufactured by DS Services are regulated as a food by the FDA. DS Services works diligently to ensure that we meet or exceed the FDA standards for food safety and quality as required by the agency's Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

Committed to accountability.

At DS Services, we strongly adhere to corporate compliance laws such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. We implement comprehensive internal controls and procedures to ensure responsibility and provide transparency.

Innovations that matters to you.

We are committed to our customers and their needs. When they ask, we listen. For example, we recently introduced a new 1-gallon water bottle that's more lightweight because it uses less plastic.

Reducing paper dependence.

Across our entire organization, we've implemented a number of measures to reduce paper usage. We've moved many customers to a digital billing and contract model. Also, we've adopted digital document storage practices.
