The Future of Bottled Water

In today’s on-the-go lifestyle, bottled water is a convenient, healthy hydration choice. The International Bottled Water Assn. (IBWA) works not only to encourage Americans to make healthy choices, but also to advocate for its member companies when it comes to regulations affecting bottled water quality, sales, taxes and more. WQP Managing Editor Kate Cline recently caught up with Christopher Hogan of IBWA to learn more about the association’s current and future efforts.

Less Waste, More Green

Leading the national tourism average with double-digit growth in occupancy rates, the summer of 2014 was a particularly good one for hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area. The increase in demand for visitor accommodations came in the midst of an unprecedented drought in California — the worst in decades, with three drier-than-average years so far — and approval of the first statewide rules to punish water wasters. In a unanimous vote earlier this year, the California State Water Resources Control Board approved new restrictions on outdoor water use.
