At what point do major bottlers accept any part of environmental nightmare?
We now have seas full of plastic we are at the point where we are now eating our own plastic waste. At what point do Nestle accept that they and the two other major players, Pepsi and Coke Cola play any part in this. They advocate consumer choice while hiding behind an environmental nightmare.

Cornwall - Nov. 10, 2011 - Rhiannon Kay recently wrote a column stating that "September marked the beginning of a bottle-free school for the University of Toronto. Bottled water is no longer being sold or distributed in most places on the University of Toronto campus. "

Yesterday, we received an E-mail to the Editor" from the Director of Corporate Affairs of Nestle Canada. We published it in its entirety here.

Today, we received an E-mail to the Editor" from the Founder of TapWater.org. We have published it in its entirety below:

Dear Editor,

I strongly disagree with Nestle on the subject of bottled waters. We now have seas full of plastic we are at the point where we are now eating our own plastic waste. Please see the video below.

In the UK we throw away each day 53,000,000 plastic single use bottles along with 200,000,000 plastic cups, remember these figures are per day every day.

At what point do Nestle accept that they and the two other major players, Pepsi and Coke Cola play any part in this. They advocate consumer choice while hiding behind an environmental nightmare. They hide behind consumer choice while making billions in profit.

I hope I live to see the day when water is only drank from a tap the same place Nestle source their water anyway.
