Take a stand. Share your photo. Stop Nestlé.
At the World Water Forum in 2000, Nestlé successfully lobbied to stop water from being declared a universal right — declaring open hunting season on our local water resources by the multinational corporations looking to control them. For Nestlé, this means billions of dollars in profits. As Nestlé pumps out fresh water at high volume, water tables lower and local wells become degraded.
But the movement to defend our shared water resources is growing. Communities are joining together to fight back, from California, to Canada, to India, to Germany and beyond.
We’re showing Nestlé that the world supports protecting public water, and opposes the wastefulness created by bottling it. With your help we can demonstrate overwhelming public support for this effort, while standing with communities already fighting to protect their local water.
Will you help show Nestlé that the public supports protecting our shared water resources?
Joining our social media storm is simple.
Take a photo of yourself in front of a public water source, such as a water fountain, tap, reservoir, stream, or pond holding a sign that says “Our Water Not Nestlé’s.” You can download sample signs below or you can customize your own.
Upload your photo to Facebook and/or Twitter using hashtag #UnbottleWater and tag @Nestle and make the post public so Nestlé gets your message. Here are some sample messages you can use:
