Tapped–The Movie

Posted by George J Janczyn on April 13, 2010

Water in plastic, or plastic in water, it’s all in Tapped, a movie that critically examines the production, transportation, and disposal issues with bottled water, with a close look at the health hazards of the plastic bottles as well as the amount of energy and water consumed by the industry.

While not directly related, plastic water bottles is a timely topic to cross paths with the latest news about the lawsuit against the Fiji Water billionaires Stewart and Lynda Resnick (not regarding bottled water, but for allegedly selling water from their holdings in a manner that violated state utilities laws) and a ban on single-use plastic carryout bags being discussed in the state legislature.

Of course, if we’re going to consider the issue seriously, we shouldn’t forget the Gatorades and other beverages consumed from plastic bottles.
