Ever wonder where those bottled water “sources” and springs really are?
Usually it’s somewhere more local than you think — and right in someone’s backyard.
Tapped throws the curtain back on the water bottling industry: from veritable water poaching that causes local shortages, to the widespread practice of selling water back to the municipalities it was taken from at hundreds of times the cost, this movie, takes us throughout the process, even showing us where most of those bottles are bound to end up (spoiler alert: it’s not the recycling plant).
Fact that inspired Stephanie Soechtig to make this movie:
“By the year 2030, two-thirds of the world will lack access to clean drinking water.” – United Nations
