[Water] The Story of Bottled Water (2010)

Sub title

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.

Our 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.

And, for all you fact checkers out there, http://storyofstuff.org/pdfs/StoryOfB...

The Story of Bottled Water (2010)

The video is about the production of bottled water, its environmental impact and the creation of a demand for clean and safe water.

    bottled water is just the same as the water from our taps so why waste your energy and money to go to the supermarket or a nearby shop to buy water and you have more than enough in your homes. i will truly tell this to my friends at school who buy botled water and there are many taps that have pure and clean water .wonderful topic

  • Rudie Sweetman says :
    Bottled water is tap water. So why do we waste our money buying bottled water everyday when it is free to grab a reusable bottle at home and fill it with our tap water. Its quicker than going all the way to the supermarket and it pollutes nothing. The money spent on making and getting rid of the plastic bottles can be used for something more efficient. Doesn't that make more sense?

  • Sarah Astried says :
    nowadays people prefer to take something instantly. ya, just like a bottled water which can be brought anywhere they want and can be threw directly without leaving a bottle anymore for them. unfortunately, indeed, it will give some bad impact on environment if we just let it be on the trash

    Great article. Bottle water is dangerous, but unfortunately due to irresponsible behaviour in some parts of the world - it still is the only source of drinking water. Any ideas on how to deal with this issue ?

    bottled water can cause cancer and the bottles pollute the earth. i say, people should start using reusable bottles more often than they are now. it would save time, money and our environment.
