Nestle Caught Illegally Bottling Water From Drought-Stricken National Park | Occupy Democrats

Nestle Caught Illegally Bottling Water From Drought-Stricken National Park | Occupy Democrats: As California battles a vicious drought well into its fourth year that has no end in sight, California Gov. Jerry Brown ordered on April 1st that water agencies charge higher rates to the people in the state using the most water, aiming for a 25% reduction in all usage. Subsequently, Californians have reluctantly been cutting back on their usage, purchasing bottled water as an alternative but unaware of the fact that the bottling and selling of groundwater is contributing heavily to the state’s water crisis.

The Arrowhead and Pure Life brands of U.S. NestleWaters, part of the Swiss conglomerate, are sourced from the San Bernardino National Forest along with several other natural springs across California, which have been continually drained of their water even though their permits to do so expired in 1988. The bottles are then placed on shelves for Californians and others to buy, helping fuel a $12 billion industry and contributing heavily to the global garbage crisis, creating ten billion plastic bottles a year that choke up landfills and clog the oceans.



I'm off Nestle ANYTHING until they play nice.
