Casino plans high-centered, but Nestle comes calling

15 Jun

For those of us lucky enough to draw tap water from the best source on the planet — for me, I’m talking about the lovely agua provided by Ice Fountain Water in Hood River — the thought of bottled water makes us retch. It’s never as good as home. Which may be why Nestle wants to tap some wells near Cascade Locks, to fuel its bottled water products. Learn more.

    Is there anything that can be done?

    Hi, my name is Alexis and I am a citizen of Portland, Oregon. I was wondering if you know any activist groups that are waging against Nestle? I would greatly like to be a part of one and give my time for such a cause. I love my state and I do not want any bottling water plants here!

    Can you help?

    Thank you,

      Thanks for your note, and concern. I think the story linked in the post references some groups raising concerns. I’d contact them.

    Yes Alexis;

    Check out these websites put up by activists protesting Nestles water and the health and ecological hazards of bottled water:

    Both are very powerful and compelling!
