Expose the Reality Behind Bottled Water

//www.stopcorporateabusenow.org/campaign/exposebottledwater

Water is precious to all life on earth. But today, for more and more communities, safe water is increasingly scarce. Globally, more than a billion people don’t have access to enough safe water to drink.

From privatizing municipal water systems to bottling, marketing and selling water—giant corporations are turning water into a profit-driven commodity. Here in the U.S., the consumption of bottled water has more than doubled in the past ten years. The bottled water industry is manipulating consumers by positioning bottled water as healthy—when in reality bottled water threatens our health and our ecosystems, costs thousands of times what tap water costs, and undermines local democratic control over a common resource.

Coca-Cola, Nestlé and Pepsi are the three largest corporations behind the bottled water industry in North America. These corporations are manipulating consumers while degrading the environment and exercising greater corporate control over communities’ water systems and water sources. These corporations have a track record tainted with irresponsible and dangerous actions and are not shy about using political and economic influence to turn public water into private profit.

Take action today and tell Coke, Nestlé and Pepsi to stop misleading promotion of bottled water and to stop interfering in public policies that protect our water.

Send a letter to the following decision maker(s): The CEOs of Coke, Nestle and Pepsi

Below is the sample letter:

Subject: Water is a right, not a commodity

Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here],

The basic human right to water is at risk and people's lives are at stake. Over one billion people don't have access to safe water to drink and corporations are contributing to this problem by turning water into a profit-driven commodity.

I am joining thousands of other consumers worldwide calling on you to:

1. Stop misleading promotion of your bottled water brands
2. Stop interfering in public policies that protect water

When will you stop prioritizing short term gains over people and the environment? I await your prompt reply.

Sincerely,
