Sierra Club Bottled Water Brochure


Although bottled water may be needed in emergencies such as when local drinking water is contaminated, the bottled water industry, led by Nestlé,Coca Cola,and Pepsi Cola,is aggressively promoting non-essential uses of bottled water.

In the United States alone, more than 10 billion plastic water bottles end up as garbage or litter each year.
