"Tapped" shows the dirty truths about bottled water

You probably don't drink bottled water. But if family or co-workers are still buying it, a new film might convince them to mend their wasteful ways.

Tapped is a film that examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil. It's directed by Stephanie Soechtig and Jason Lindsey, and produced by Atlas Films. The official site is www.tappedthemovie.com.

The trailer below features footage of Nestle's Poland Springs trucks rolling through Maine--where the Alliance's Defending Water for Life campaign is raising awareness of and resistance to corporate privatization of water, and working with residents on local ordinances to defend water rights. (Campaign chair Ruth Caplan appears at the very end.) To find out more about our water work, see the campaign page on our website. We'll post more info on the film as we get it.
