COMING TO LA GRANDE THURSDAY, MAY 30!

CLASSIC DOCUMENTARY FILM “TAPPED”

  • Presents overwhelming amount of evidence about bottled and municipal water
  • Examines the role of bottled water industry and effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil
  • Highlights the willful absence of major companies such as Coke, Pepsi and Nestle in addressing this environmental problem

“Every day we throw away 50 million single-serve bottles of water as plastic waste! How this crisis developed and continues to worsen is brilliantly explained and the producers should be highly praised for their efforts. Our hope is that the small voice of “Tapped” will be heard over the huge booming commercial machine in the popular media.”
