Named for the Greek goddess of wisdom and strength, Athena® was created for the cause by a breast cancer survivor. The support and care she received during treatments and recovery inspired her to become part of the search for a cure. The belief that everyone can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer with a simple bottle of water continues through the efforts of everyone at DS Services of America, Inc.

Who is Athena?

Immortalized in Greek mythology, Athena represents breast cancer warriors everywhere. Daughter of Zeus, the ruler of Olympus, Athena was a fearless fighter guided by wisdom and strength. She symbolizes the resilient warrior in all of us who rely on courage and will in the fight against cancer.

Working today for a cleaner tomorrow

Athena® knows that being good to the environment can be good for business and our communities. By practicing an approach that is both responsible and resourceful, we've found simple ways over the past decade to bottle water with packaging that has less impact on our environment. Our .5L bottles are among the most lightweight in the industry today. In fact, over the past 10 years we have reduced the amount of plastic in our bottles by more than 50% and our caps by 25%. Now, add in the fact that our packaging is 100% recyclable – from the plastic bottles and caps to the outer wrap and corrugated paper trays – and you can see why Athena® has emerged as a true leader in the challenge to keep our environment green.
