For straight talk on bottled water visit and

review this 5 minute video "Tapped"

Check out the trailer for "Tapped." Warning: Your Impression of Bottled Water will Change Forever. Hitting Too Close to Home - Nestle's Plan to Ship Bottled Arkansas Valley Spring Water from Salida to Denver

One of the greatest things you can do for the planet is to break single-use habits. The two things that always come to mind are plastic bags and plastic water bottles. Recently, I received quite the wake-up call when I watched the trailer “Tapped.” For those of you who haven’t seen this five minute video about water bottle waste, I strongly recommend it! Click here to view it.

The useful life of a plastic water bottle is very similar to that of the plastic bag. They both provide about 10 minutes of convenience and then we no longer need them or want them. And like the single-use bag habit, our obsession with convenience – a fresh bottle of water available to purchase just about anywhere – has a dramatic negative impact on our environment. Recently, quite a few water bottle manufacturers have admitted to bottling tap water and selling it to the American public. Have we been duped? How much do you spend on bottled water in a year? Just think you could have been getting it for about a penny all this time.

After you watch the trailer for "Tapped," read this Denver Post article about the local fight to stop Nestle's plan to "suck, truck and bottle Arkansas Valley spring water" from Chaffee County to Denver - "The company (Nestle) wants to draw 65 million gallons a year from an aquifer feeding two freshwater springs near Nathrop, pipe it 5 miles to a truck stop and ship it 100 miles to a Denver bottling facility. It would be sold under the company's Arrowhead brand."

What a waste! You may remember that plastic is made from petroleum. In addition, petroleum is used to ship water all over the world. According to the film “Tapped,” 18 million barrels of oil are used just to transport bottled water. And we haven’t even talked about the landfill waste! Isn't it time we gave up that single-use water bottle habit?
