The Story of Stuff Project needs to raise $20,000 to make a film that will expose the truth about Nestle’s exploitation of public water resources to millions of people worldwide. Donate today to help us produce a film that will launch a campaign to spur public action and keep Nestle from taking our water and polluting our environment with plastic!
Any contribution amount brings us closer to being able to give this problem the attention it deserves. Contributions of $100 or more will be recognized with a producer credit on our website.
There’s a big fight brewing over water worldwide. From drought-stricken California, to Canada, to Germany and beyond, the Nestle Corporation is one of the key players in a worldwide effort to privatize our water resources.
While Nestle profits off of one of the fundamental components of life, and litters our oceans with plastic packaging, people and at-risk ecosystems pay the price. But the movement to push back against Nestle is just getting started.
Now is the time to act. With the drought in California stirring up global media attention, people’s concern about the future of our public water is at an all time high. Nestle takes water from public lands around the world to produce single-use bottled water that costs 300 times as much as tap. With our changing climate, droughts are expected to become a worldwide problem. If we can spread the real story of Nestle far and wide, we can force government and businesses to take action.
The Story of Stuff Project and partner organizations have already collected hundreds of thousands of signatures demanding Nestle stop draining California’s public water during the drought. Now our Campaign Director, Stiv Wilson, has traveled down to the San Bernardino National Forest to meet with a film crew, an attorney and Forest Service whistleblowers in order to gather information about Nestle's use of an expired permit to take public water.
Nestle has well-paid lawyers and a powerful PR machine, but The Story of Stuff Project has smart people, communication savvy, and the benefit of truth on our side.
Over the coming weeks, we plan to produce and release a short video that will expose Nestle’s unethical operations on California’s public lands to millions of viewers. This video will launch a larger campaign complete with dozens of local efforts to hold Nestle accountable for its actions across the globe. This is the story Nestle doesn’t want the public to know, and that’s why it needs to be told.
