Evian Water Goes Carbon Neutral To Reduce Environmental Impact

By Brian Spaen

Packaged water has been met with growing criticism due to the environmental damage it creates, and Danone is doing something about it. They’ve upgraded the Evian bottling plant, the biggest bottled water brand under the company, to be carbon neutral. Over the next three years, they’ll be looking to make transportation pollution neutral as well.

Evian is one of the more popular bottled water brands in the world. You’ve undoubtedly seen them next to brands like Aquafina, Dasani, and Glaceau’s Smartwater. Back in March, bottled water became a higher seller than soda in the United States as residents have opted to look for healthier options when shopping or getting a drink from the vending machine.

Where does Evian water come from? Evian-les-Bains, or simply Evian for short, which is a spa and resort town on the shores of Lake Geneva in Southeast France, is the source. It tends to be a higher-priced option on the shelves since it’s imported from overseas. Unfortunately, that also adds to the carbon footprint of transportation.
