AMERICA RECYCLES DAY: A KEY TIME TO FOCUS ON CONSUMER EDUCATION

Alexandria, VA – On America Recycles Day, the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) encourages people to become more aware of the importance of recycling and to choose consumer products that are packaged in recyclable material, such as single serve PET bottled water and Home Office Delivery water cooler containers.  Research shows that the better people understand the reasons for recycling, the more likely they will actually recycle and IBWA is making an extra effort to help consumers understand the benefits of recycling.

The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) is the authoritative source of information about all types of bottled waters. Founded in 1958, IBWA's membership includes U.S. and international bottlers, distributors and suppliers. IBWA is committed to working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates bottled water as a packaged food product, and state governments to set stringent standards for safe, high quality bottled water products. Additionally, IBWA requires member bottlers to adhere to the IBWA Bottled Water Code of Practice, which mandates additional standards and practices that in some cases are more stringent than federal and state regulations. A key feature of the IBWA Model Code is an annual plant inspection by an independent, third party organization.
