Blog Action Day ! Bottled Water Campaign







The selling of water is depleting the water resources for everybody.
We don't even know how much water we have, and people are destroying the environment in order to get the water.

Right now, selling water is a huge business around the world; because of this, companies are depleting rives and lakes, and changing our natural resources.

Many people are unaware of this because when there are articles about this in newspapers and magazines, these are usually too long, with the result that people are not able to understand, and they continue to buy the bottles of water.

We have to stop buying water from commercial companies, in order to protect a basic resource inherited from nature that keeps us alive.

One campaign that occurs to me is that we should each send to the Prime Minister an empty water bottle, with a note inside that says: "SOS. Huge ecological impact." Add to this -adhesive tape- a circle with a line through it & containing the word "Privatization" (i.e. say no to privatization). Remember that you can send mail to the Prime Minister at the Parliament in Ottawa free of charge - no stamp is needed.

Ok, I guess I have a question, then: aren't people going to consume the water either way -- whether it comes from companies that bottle it or from the local utilities?

The point is that the people who sell the water are making a profit from water that doesn't belong to them, it belong to all of us.

The bottes polute the enviroment and cost million and millions to dispose of them.

The local autority is not going to make profit.
