The Story of Bottled Water

August 18, 2011 at 4:34 pm 2 comments

The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industrys attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.

Production partners on the bottled water film include five leading sustainability groups: Corporate Accountability International, Environmental Working Group, Food & Water Watch, Pacific Institute, and Polaris Institute.

    So you’re trying to solve issues like bottled water. All plastic bottles take oil to produce, not just water bottles. And other bottled drinks take much more water and energy to produce, and many could hardly said to be healthier than tap water as mentioned in the video.
