All of our waters are packaged in either PET or refillable glass bottles -- materials that are 100 percent recyclable. Our bottles are clear, green and light blue because these colours have the highest recycling value. Even our caps and labels are designed to be recycled along with the bottle and are compatible with local recycling systems. To further reduce waste, we have launched recycling initiatives throughout the world on our own and with third-party partners. We have also invested more than $80 million to build six plastic bottle-to-bottle recycling plants throughout the world, including the world's largest PET recycling plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Our operations and distribution are local, which means that for most of our water brands the water is collected, bottled and transported locally, with minimal transportation to consumer outlets.

Each of the four constituent countries of the UK (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) have their own NHS, each of which are run along the same lines but are managed separately and operate without general discrimination toward citizens from each others' areas. The large majority of NHS services are provided free of charge to the patient. The NHS in England is controlled by the UK government through the Department of Health. The NHS provides healthcare to anyone normally resident in the United Kingdom with most services free at the point of use for the patient though there are charges associated with eye tests, dental care, prescriptions, and many aspects of personal care. The NHS provides the majority of healthcare in England, including primary care, in-patient care, long-term healthcare, ophthalmology and dentistry.
