The Story of Bottled Water

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.

    We use alkalized, ieoiznd water. We buy it from someone who owns a machine, but plan to buy our own soon. It’s the best tasting water I’ve ever had!I agree with Dottie about Stanwood water. Aside from it tasting awful, I drank Stanwood tap water for just a few weeks and got an eczema-like rash on my wrists. (I’ve never had that problem before). After a few days of drinking our new water, the rash was gone.
