A myth of abundance, lack of monitoring, and a profit-driven market allow our communities’ water sources to be exported out of local watersheds, never to return again.
Nestlé profits from water all over the world. Communities are saying “no” to Nestlé’s water grabs. It’s time to stop the corporate takeover and protect water for people by boycotting Nestlé and bottled water.
