Documentary Examines Bottled Water Industry: “Tapped” is described as “an examination of the financial and ecological impact of the bottled water industry.”

After the show, Food & Water Watch’s Lena Smith will provide an update on threats to NJ’s water and actions the community can take.
“Tapped” is described as “an examination of the financial and ecological impact of the bottled water industry.” The movie addresses whether access to clean drinking water is a basic human right or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce.
From the producers of “Who Killed the Electric Car?” the film provides a behind-the-scenes look at the unregulated and unseen world of the bottled water industry, which “aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water.”
Food & Water Watch, Oaklyn Green Team and Sustainable Collingswood are sponsors of the screening. Registration is requested at brownpapertickets.com/event/2913719.
Location: Collingswood Library, 771 Haddon Ave., Collingswood. For more information, call (856) 425-2221. Also visit facebook.com/events/1956253301327603/ or GMOFreeNJ.com/events.
