TAPPED is a behind-the-scenes look into the obscure world of the bottled-water industry — a mostly unregulated industry that privatizes our water and sells it back to us. From the production of plastic bottles to the ocean where so many of these bottles end up, TAPPED follows the machinations of the bottled-water industry and the communities affected. It provides a powerful portrait of the lives damaged by the bottled-water industry, featuring those caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.
This event, sponsored by Klean Kanteen, is a fundraiser to build support for the work of Crag Law Center, Bark, and Food & Water Watch to prevent Nestlé from bottling and selling Oregon spring water in the Columbia River Gorge. After the screening will be a discussion about Nestlé’s plans to bottle Oregon water, what this could mean for Oregon communities and how people can take action to prevent Nestlé from privatizing Oregon’s public water resources.
