'Tapped': What's Inside Bottled Water?
Tapped is a film that examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil.
Approximately 29 billion bottles of water are purchased every year in America alone. All of that plastic is made with petroleum - with a very small amount of that made from recycled content plastic - and sadly very little of it is recycled.
On top of that, there is the long-distance shipping of water around the globe, not the best strategy considering the current climate crisis!
'Tapped' filmmakers had eight of the biggest brands in bottled water tested and found in some cases that the pristine-looking liquid contained a toxic cocktail of everything from arsenic to radioactive compounds and the deadly carcinogenic compound BPA, which leaches out of the plastic.
This is definitely a must see! Watch the trailer below:
