How is evian® water made?
evian® natural mineral water isn’t made, it’s given to us by nature. Our water gets its unique, exceptional qualities from the source. Protected under a fortress of geological layers built by glaciers 30,000 years ago, it slowly travels through natural snowy, glacial rocks naturally filtering it. It’s a 15-year process before it gets from the French Alps to you - with no additives, no enhancements. The water’s unique taste and composition is a result of nature’s water cycle.

All evian bottles are 100% recyclable and made of PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate Code No.

In many communities, glass and PET evian bottles can be recycled at recycling centers, or through “curbside” recycling programs.
In order to find out if recycling facilities exist in your area or whether you have a curbside recycling program, we suggest that you check with your local municipal office.
