The Story of Bottled Water

In keeping with the BBC2 programme on Tuesday, a stylish little film about how the bottled water industry has convinced Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when they can get it free from a tap.

The Story of Bottled Water is a 7-minute animated film which explores the bottled water industry’s attacks on tap water safety and its use of seductive, environmental-themed marketing to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film asks us to make a personal commitment to avoid bottled water and support public investment in clean, available tap water for all.  Something we at definitely agree with!
