Students for a Sustainable Campus will be screening Tapped on Tuesday April 2nd at 7:30 in Rausch that examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil. This screening is a component of the Why Bottled Water campaign that has been working on educating students on the environmental impacts of single-use plastic water bottles.
Read the press release to learn more about Tapped: Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce? Stephanie Soechtig’s debut feature is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water. From the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car and I.O.U.S.A., this timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water.
From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.
