"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? ... [T]his 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 production of plastic, to the ocean in which so many bottles end up, this...documentary follows the bottled water trail through the communities which are the unwitting chips on the corporate table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this...film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public's right to water" -- Container.

This movie literally changed my life. I am now recycling plastic bottles at my place of business and in my home. I am also collecting plastic from family and friends.

"By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish." If you don't remember anything else from this movie this should be it!

Informative and well put together doc that educated me about some of the other costs associated with bottled water.

This is informative without being overly sentimental. It is kind of slow in parts, however.

The impact bottled water has on your health, the health of citizens where the bottles are manufactured, the impact on the water supplies in the small communities where Coke, Pepsi and Nestle (who own almost all the the brands) strategically set up, and how the FDA employees have been gagged from helping protect public health.

Would this title be available for borrowing in the near future?

A nice documentary that takes you through all the stages of bottled water. This movie kept my attention - whether it is the corporation that keeps bottling during drought, the waste that results from the use of bottled water; the analysis of the water within the bottles themselves; or, the effects of the petrochemical plants on their neighbours.
