“The Story of Bottled Water”

Hello everyone,

I came across this video few days ago and i thought it is a good idea to share it with you guys.

This video is part of many others, created by Annie Leonard who strives to create a more sustainable and just world. She presents a series of social, environmental and economic concerns which beg to be solved.

Particularly, this video presents us the story behind bottled water. Many of us drink bottled water everyday without asking ourselves, why do I BUY this bottle when water should be free and accessible everywhere? In a persuasive way, Annie Leonard is describing the process of making the bottled water, the bottle-water companies concerns and sincerity and finally, she offers solutions and actions for this problem.

After watching this video, would you buy a bottled water? Would you be more interested to know whats behind the TV advertisements?

  1. I found this video to be very interesting. I am constantly carrying around bottled water, but after watching this video, I am not sure I will be anymore. It was very eye-opening and I think more people should be made aware of the reality of the bottled water industry.
