About Our Bottle Packaging

Four Packaging Options to Choose From

At Eldorado, our offering combines the gifts from an ancient spring with the latest advancements in bottling and packaging technology. Not only do we regularly test the quality of our water, we also are continually reviewing research on the best ways to deliver our product to you. If BPA-free water delivery options are important to you, we've got you covered with a variety of choices!


The Latest Research on BPA 

In recent years, there has been growing awareness of a chemical in plastic packaging called Bisphenol A (BPA). While it has been used to harden plastics since the 1960s and can be found in everything from water bottles to canned foods to dental sealants, studies in the last decade have shown that BPA is ingested in small quantities from foods and beverages that come in plastic packaging.

People also ingest BPA through air, dust, and other sources. In fact, it’s estimated that 90% of us have BPA in our bodies. Organizations including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have conducted extensive research into BPA and its effects. While their studies to this point have been fairly inconclusive, they have determined that BPA at low levels does not pose a risk to human health.


Four Ways to Receive Nature’s Finest Water

By staying informed about the latest research on BPA and its potential effects on human health, we are able to make informed decisions when it comes to our packaging materials. Our commitment to the well-being and satisfaction of our customers is reflected in the variety of packaging options we offer for BPA-free water delivery.

We understand that some individuals may have concerns about BPA and its presence in plastic packaging. That's why we offer four packaging options that are all BPA-free, ensuring that you can enjoy our natural spring water without any worries. Whether you prefer the lightweight and durable PET containers, the excellent durability and clarity of large polycarbonate bottles, the cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness of high-density polyethylene, or the pristine quality of glass, we have an option that suits your preferences and needs.


recycle-logos_1.jpgPolyethylene Terephthalate (PET). PET is BPA free, lightweight, durable, and doesn’t pose the shatter risk of glass. Its disadvantages are that it can be prone to leaking and is not as aesthetically pleasing as some other forms of packaging.   Currently, our water is available in PET containers of five sizes: 5 gallons, 1.5 liters, 1.0 liters, 24 ounces, and 0.5 liters. The 1.0-liter, 24-ounce, and 0.5-liter containers are all made from environmentally friendly 100% post-consumer recycled PET (rPET).

recycle-logos-7.jpgPolycarbonate (PC). PC provides excellent durability and clarity, and will not shatter like glass. PC is more expensive to manufacture than PET and it does contain BPA. However, if you prefer BPA-free bottles, we can definitely accommodate that request as the majority of our 5 gallon bottles are now BPA-free. If you prefer a BPA-free bottle, please be sure to let your customer account representative know.

recycle-logos-2.jpgHigh-density Polyethylene (HDPE). Most plastics made with HDPE are BPA free. It is the most cost-effective plastic to use in water bottles, and it has the highest recycle rates, so it is very environmentally friendly. The downside of HDPE is that it can impart taste and odor to the water it contains if stored in a warm place. It is also an opaque material, making it less visually appealing. We currently offer HDPE packaging for our 1-gallon jugs.

recycle-logos-Glass.jpgWhen it comes to delivering water in its most pristine condition, glass is ideal. In addition, it does not contain BPA. However, as glass production in the U.S. has declined, the cost of glass has greatly increased, making glass containers very expensive. Glass can be imported, but the quality varies. We source our glass in Italy, where we pay more but receive a higher quality product. Another challenge with glass is that it poses a shatter risk. We currently offer glass packaging for our 3-gallon size.

  3. Sip throughout the day.
  4. Keep a water bottle at your desk, in your car, and in your bag.
  5. Try flavored seltzer waters or add some lemon.
