1. The Story of Bottled Water –  This film has spread like wildfire since premiering in March, and for good reason. In the film, director Annie Leonard and her troupe of stick figures share staggering facts about bottled water’s impact on our environment. You’ll never look at that bottle the same way again.

2. Tapped – Tapped focuses on the ugly truth behind the “big business” of bottled water. The film also delves into the impact bottled water has on our own health, and discusses the danger existing in BPA and other chemicals that have been found in some plastic bottles.

3. FlOW: For Love of Water – The award-winning documentary investigates the many ways that water is being privatized across the globe. The film is also a call-to-action, urging its viewers to stand up for their right to clean water.

4. Thirst – Thirst investigates the privatization of water. The film follows grassroots initiatives in India, Bolivia and Stockton, California as activists unite against the global water privatization.

5. The Water Front – If you  think that water issues primarily apply to third-world countries, think again. The citizens of Highland Park, Michigan are also fighting to keep their water from being privatized. With residents of the city receiving water bills as high as $10,000, you can understand why the film begs the question: “What if you lived by the largest body of fresh water in the world but could no longer afford to use it?”

    Thank you very informative! I have seen Tapped and F.L.O.W. I will def have the company check out the other three. So amazing to me how a basic necessity is treated like diamonds. People need water to Live. Stop making it harder on them.

    I’ve seen The Story of Bottled Water and Tapped. They are definite eye openers. I’m constantly amazed at the things companies and government do and get away with. Then these companies have the nerve to market their crap as something that is good and healthy for you.

    I tend to think of companies as “things” because it’s easier to view them that way. When I think of them as organizations of PEOPLE who are making these decisions, it depresses me because I’m forced to realize how ethically poor and deprived of compassion we’ve become.

    Water… we wash with it, we cook with it, we drink it, we bathe in it…
