Across the planet, water bottling companies like Nestlé are aggressively seeking out sources of water for their operations, with little regard for their impact on the environment or local communities. From San Bernardino, California to Cascade Locks, Oregon, to Fryeburg, Maine, we’re partnering with local citizens to protect public access to water and reduce plastic waste. Together, we can Unbottle Water!
San Bernardino National Forest, Southern California
In the midst of California’s historic drought, Nestlé Waters is drawing millions of gallons of water a year from the San Bernardino National Forest. Nestlé’s permit to remove this precious resource expired in 1988. Join us in demanding that U.S. Forest Service turn off the spigot!
Cascade Locks, Oregon
Cascade Locks, Oregon is heaven on earth—a small town nestled in the awe-inspiring Columbia River Gorge. But when Nestlé came to town with a proposal to bottle their water, citizens launched an all-out effort to protect their most precious resource. Get inspired by the heroic efforts of these unlikely activists.
Help This Story Go Global
Keeping stories like these in the public eye sends a clear message to Nestlé that water is a resource to be cherished and protected, NOT a commodity to be bottled and sold around the world for corporate gain.
