Product Description

This award-winning documentary certainly blows the cap off the bottled water industry. Aside from the morality of turning drinking water into a commodity, it seems 40 percent of the frosty “product” is actually municipal tap water, bottled and sold at a huge markup. The focus here is on communities in Georgia, Maine, and North Carolina where multinational corporations are quietly pumping large quantities of water for statewide distribution. The filmmakers name Coca-Cola Co., Nestle S.A., and PepsiCo., representatives of which all declined to be interviewed. Meanwhile, millions of gallons of oil are refined each year in the United States to make single-use polyethylene bottles. Most are discarded, ending up as trash, buried in landfills, or floating in the oceans and waterways. The U.S. Federal Drug Administration is criticized in Senate hearings for not regulating bottled water, independent testing of which has found polutants toluene, styrene, and phalates. Bonus features include extended interviews. Highly recommended for all adults, especially those with a thirst for environmental activism.–David R. Conn, formerly with Surrey Libraries, BC Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
