Crag is donating our legal services to Bark and Food and Water Watch to challenge the approval of water exchange permits that move Nestlé one key step closer to bottling and selling Oregon’s water. To learn more about the many issues around Nestlé’s proposal to bottle and sell our water, please join Crag, Bark and Food and Water Watch for this screening of the award-winning film TAPPED. This all ages, family-friendly event will feature a discussion about Nestlé’s plans to bottle Oregon water, what this could mean for Oregon communities and how people can take action to prevent Nestlé from privatizing Oregon’s public water resources.
TAPPED is a behind-the-scenes look into the obscure world of the bottled-water industry — a mostly unregulated industry that privatizes our water and sells it back to us. From the production of plastic bottles to the ocean where so many of these bottles end up, TAPPED follows the machinations of the bottled-water industry and the communities affected. It provides a powerful portrait of the lives damaged by the bottled-water industry, featuring those caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.
