    Great advice! I’ve read recently about the corporatization of public water and the fact that large corporations are essentially forcing people to pay for their water. This is outrageous!

    I can’t believe that. Water should be free, like air. What are we paying for? The container?

    1. Increase safe/clean water fountains/refill stations for those who bring (and wash) their own containers.
    2. Continue to sell water only in recyclable/reusable plastic bottles.
    3. Encourage recycling/reusing of water bottles.
    4. Ban pop sold in plastic bottles. Pop is unnecessary for health and can be detrimental to health.

    I am from Mexico. Here the Public system not include provide drinking water to the public. Can you imagine? There are no water fountains at all. Mexico consumes more bottle water per person that any other country in the wold.
    Your campaign against corporation water will help to open the eyes for those who can help to bring drinking water to people.
