Nestlé CEO On Bottling Water In California: ‘If I Could Increase It, I Would’

You probably heard that there’s a drought in California.

You might have heard that food and beverage mega-corporation Nestlé (as well as lots of other companies) is bottling water in the drought in California.

This is not Nestlé’s fault. This is your fault.

The article goes on to explain:

This is not Nestlé’s fault. This is your fault.

At least, that’s what Nestlé International Waters’ CEO seemed to be saying in an interview with Southern California Public Radio this week.

“If I stop bottling water tomorrow, people would buy another brand of bottled water,” Tim Brown said. “It’s driven by consumer demand, it’s driven by an on-the-go society that needs to hydrate.”

Nestlé came under attack last month, when it was revealed that the company has been bottling water from the San Bernardino National Forest under an expired permit for the past 25 years. The company has repeatedly said that its expired permit with the National Forest Service remains in good standing.

“We feel good about what we’re doing,” Brown said. “In fact, if I could increase it, I would.”

The interview was part of what seems like a bigger push by Nestlé against the idea that its business practices are related to California’s drought.

This is going to become an increasingly tough position for Nestle to maintain.. as the drought intensifies more *it is* and the circumstances become more dre *they are* Nestle may have some trouble being able to defend their business model.. 

I think in our modern age, it may be time to accept tap water. With a filer. And a FLUORIDE FILTER is you can get one. If you have well water, test it. If it’s not good enough to drink go with public water (FILTERED and fluoride filtered) .. 

There are solutions that are safe… and plastic free.
