Corporate Accountability International
This April Fools’ Day kicked off a national week of action calling on Nestlé to stop fooling with community water supplies.For years Nestlé has run roughshod over community and environmental concerns when taking and bottling water for brands like Poland Spring, Deer Park, Ice Mountain and Arrowhead.
Nestlé is now looking to increase the number of bottling facilities it owns and operates across the country, in places like McCloud, California and Salida, Colorado.
This month, Nestlé will try to avoid responsibility for its practices by trumpeting its greenwashing initiatives at its annual shareholders’ meeting.
And, once you’ve signed the petition, submit a photo holding a sign or pouring out Nestlé brand bottled water on our Flickr page (click here for quick, easy instructions). The best photos will be featured on our site and the photo contest winner will receive a free reusable Think Outside the Bottle water bottle.
