World Water Day and the Story of Bottled Water

From the makers of the excellent short film, "The Story of Stuff", comes a new short (8 mins) video called "The Story of Bottled Water". Released on World Water Day, it makes the argument against drinking bottled water (at least for those in the U.S.), and for the safety of your city's tap water. Also of interest is the concept of "manufactured demand" - a scheme by the corporate world to sell a product for which there is no real need. If that doesn't make you rethink your bottled water choices, consider that much bottled water is actually filtered tap water, and that the entire water industry is among the most environmentally unsound of all industries.

Also consider visiting the petition "Think Outside the Bottle" from Corporate Accountability International that seeks to demand clean and safe public water systems for everyone. Click here.

    I love how "they" said that tap water should be regulated to showering and dishes. Ummm, yeah that is on my body getting ready to travel in my body. Good one.

    Great post. Keep 'em coming.
