The food industry The trouble with bottled water


What’s behind this $60 billion industry

Estimates are that global bottled water sales are about $60 billion.

“Tapped” is a 2009 documentary film by directors Stephanie Soechtig and Jason Lindsey. The two began the documentary after research into ocean pollution “kept leading them to bottled water.

” Tapped looks into the bottled water industry and its long term effects socially, economically and ecologically.The filmmakers focused on industry giants such as PepsiCo and Nestlé Waters, visiting a town that Nestlé contains a factory in as well as running tests on the bottles the company uses for its products.

Their results came back showing “several potentially harmful chemicals, some known carcinogens”.

The documentary also focused on the amount of bottles that are recycled, noting that “Forty percent of bottled water is really just filtered tap water, and every day we throw away 30 million single-served bottles of water.
