LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Icelandic Glacial announced today that it will serve as the official water for the 77th Golden Globes® Awards Ceremony. The naturally alkaline and sustainably sourced natural spring water will hydrate nominees and guests both on the red carpet and during the annual star-studded show. This marks the first time Icelandic Glacial has served as a Golden Globes sponsor.

“We are proud to be an environmentally conscious partner of the Golden Globes,” said Icelandic Glacial’s Chairman and Co-Founder, Jon Olafsson. “We pride ourselves on our outstanding achievement of being the world’s first certified Carbon Neutral bottled water for the past ten years, and look forward to sharing the purest tasting water on Earth with Hollywood’s finest.”

Icelandic Glacial will be available to guests upon arrival at the red carpet, with glass bottles featured on every dinner table during the televised award ceremony. Icelandic Glacial will also be exclusively available at all Golden Globes’ official events leading up to the big show. Produced from a spring that is so pure nothing is added or taken away, Icelandic Glacial possesses an exceptional balance featuring a naturally low mineral content and naturally alkaline pH of 8.4. Being the world’s first certified carbon neutral natural spring bottled water, Icelandic uses 100% natural green energy to fuel its production while maintaining a “net zero” carbon footprint.

“We are delighted that nominees and guests will be able to sample Icelandic Glacial and experience water that is high in quality, purity and environmental sustainability,” said Reza Mirza, CEO of Icelandic Glacial. “We believe in bringing our water from Iceland with minimal environmental impact.”

Icelandic Glacial will donate water to a humanitarian cause of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s (HFPA) choice. This is not the first time Icelandic Glacial has teamed up to donate water to help people affected by disaster; they were one of the first major companies on the scene to donate water to Haiti relief in 2010 as well as sending water to the people of Flint, Michigan in 2016.

“We are thrilled to partner with Icelandic Glacial to keep guests hydrated at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards,” said Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “For over 25 years, the HFPA has been giving back to the community, and the world, committing over $37.5 million in grants to nonprofits and humanitarian organizations. We are thrilled that through this partnership, Icelandic Glacial will help us further our mission of doing good.”

The 77th annual Golden Globe Awards will air Sunday, January 5, 2020 LIVE coast-to-coast from 5:00-8:00 p.m. PT/8:00-11:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
