Nestlé is draining developing countries' groundwater to make its Pure Life bottled water, destroying countries' natural resources before forcing its people to buy their own water back.

Among other interests, Nestle's most pervasive product is WATER! This is not new. They have been buying up property here in Maine and stealing our water (using a 100 year old loopholed law) for decades. They bottle it here as Poland Springs. Water will be their biggest business, because water is the one thing we cannot live without. I am researching a list of their products and will boycott them all. This is an unethical company! NEVER BUY POLAND SPRINGS WATER in the eastern part of the US and research the bottled water in your areas to see if Nestle owns any of them.

n June 2003, Poland Spring was sued for false advertising in a class action lawsuit charging that their water that supposedly comes from springs, is in fact heavily treated common ground water.[18] The suit also states, hydro-geologists hired by Nestlé found that another current source for Poland Spring water near the original site stands over a former trash and refuse dump, and below an illegal disposal site where human sewage was sprayed as fertilizer for many years.[18] The suit was settled in September 2003, with the company not admitting to the allegations, but agreeing to pay $10 million in charity donations and discounts over the next 5 years.[19] Nestlé continues to sell the same Maine water under the Poland Spring name.

Nestlé also produces bottled water under various brand names depending on the region. These brands include Arrowhead, Calistoga, Deer Park, Ice Mountain, Ozarka, Poland Spring, and Zephyrhills.

Sadly Nestle are not the only company to bottle what would otherwise be tap water. Access to water is the most basic human right, it should be protected.

NOT A CLASS ISSUE AS SOME POLITICIANS MUST BE GETTING PAID TO BE IN CAHOOTS WITH NESTLE & GETTING A "GOOD INCOME" BY SELLING OUT RESOURCES MEANT FOR THE PEOPLE THAT VOTED THEM IN! NESTLE IS A CULPRIT IN SOURCING MILK FROM FARMS ILLEGALLY GRABBED FROM WHITE FARMERS WITHOUT COMPENSATION IN ZIMBABWE. UNFAIR & UNSCRUPULOUS BUSINESS PRACTICE. GIVE NESTLE THE BOOT & BOYCOTT THEIR PRODUCTS!
