Last year, one of the most important films of our time was made. The film “Tapped” has opened my eyes to the damaging effects that plastic has on our environment and the bottled water companies control of our water. Take the time to see this documentary and pass it on to everyone you know.
“If you eliminate the scourge of bottled water, you will be eliminating one of the biggest problems facing our environment”. —Charles Moore, founder, Algalita, and discoverer of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch
Tapped is a condemnation of one of the most ubiquitous acts of consumption today, the purchase of bottled water. The scathing new documentary reveals a litany of damaging effects as it follows this environmental scourge from production to “disposal,” including the Pacific Ocean’s floating continents of plastic debris twice the size of the continental United States.
This documentary also examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil.
Along the way, the directors demonstrate how corporate greed combines with a lack of government oversight to allow bottled-water giants Coke and Pepsi to continue bottling water during recent droughts in Georgia and North Carolina, and encasing it in cancer-causing chemicals.
