How does this greedy pathetic company get away with this...isn't Nestle the same a-holes helping themselves to the waters in Ontario--pretty sure it is. Thanks

Noted. Thanks for posting this info, Heidi. CA is in a drought and needs all the water to not be greedily sold. CA citizens should be taking to the streets regarding this one. The state is now imposing a $500 fine on those wasting water.

Shocking. Why do people even care to buy bottled water? I am always taking my own water with me as I am not willing to pay for those companies. Plus it is more environmentally friendly not to buy all the bottles.

Nestle is a sleazy company. I remember when they were trying to sell formula to mothers in other counties-mothers who could have breast fed and could not afford their crappy product. I agree Birgit-I get crazy when I see people walking around wight hose bottles. you know they probably buy them all the time and the water is not better than regular water-in most places. We, in Boston, have good tap water and yet people pay for bottles which get left in the streets and/or are to recycled.

I've stopped buying their products (although I don't know the names of all their subsidiary companies)
they've become another evil company with no conscience.

Nestle has no regard for the environment. I don't believe it matters if the plant is in the desert or an area that has plenty of water. There is no reason for this product. You also have to blame the people that buy bottled water.

Noted and shared with thanks Heidi. I surely hope that people with stop buying Nestle bottled water!! It is such a travesty that some businesses only care about money. I feel that only the big bottled water, for emergencies should be saved. Sure do wish plastics were done away with, for the sake of the environment.

Nestle has been banned for years now in this household and I can't say we're missing something!

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead
"A Horse With No Name"
