Is bottled water sourced from parts of the world where it’s needed most?

Enjoy drinking bottled water without without worrying about whether or not the water comes from parts of the world where it’s needed. The Myth: Some anti-bottled water groups have used this myth as a communications tool saying the bottled water industry takes water from people in other parts of the world who need it.

The fact is, the bottled water industry has no impact on the availability of drinking water. According to the International Bottled Water Association, about 98.5% of all bottled water sold in the United States is sourced domestically.
