Look out Oregon Nestle is marking Oregon water?
Once again Nestle is side stepping behind the truth of what is healthy for our ocean. Their new marketing strategist to sell more plastic to consumers and at the same time not truly lowering pollution being produced. Side stepping the plastic pollution problem! Let's turn our backs on this non sustainable approach at the ocean plastic pollution water bottle. It's Still creating a demand for plastic. Kinda scary we are allowing more plastic pollution with large side stepping marketing products that sound inviting but truly is not solving the plastic material issues. Read More - Link:
Truly if others care about the ocean, and sea mammals getting rid of plastic all together is key over sidestepping to continue melting down used plastic to make more plastic products. Recycling is not the answer since less then 30% even is being recycled in the US and melting down plastic has its key points but melting down plastic is also what even China bans foreign waste saying its destroying the clean air quality and the US should deal with our mess ourself. I say we just tell nestle to stop producing their single use products and start thinking of the customers they are selling products to.
Another Nestle Marketed Product That is Not Just More Plastic
If you remember the setbacks of this Nestle company back in 2016 proposing water rights to sell water from the Columbia Gorge in hope to transfer water rights to Nestles key bottling plant, which a judge approved this water rights transfer which gave an administrative approval giving the state control over the spring that could eventually feed this bottling plant. The Nestle Corporation has eyed the city of Cascade locks, Oregon, and many other locations along the Columbia Gorge to build the facility. The Cascade Locks City Administrator Gordon Zimmerman stated among those steps is making sure the city can proceed even through county voters that have banned commercial water bottling back in may.
Julia DeGraw of the group of Food and Water watch said the ruling by an administrative law judge that gave the go-ahead for the water rights transfer is just one decision in a long series of other decisions that would need to occur before the corporation of Nestle can build this water plant. As you may have heard many environmental groups that filed lawsuits to stop this transfer lost on a holistic stand point when Nestle build this side stepping bottling plant on the other side of the Columbia river in the State of Washington a small town called Waitsburg, Washington, about 20 miles east of Walla Walla population of 1,230 and built with ease. This is not to say the water is not coming from a under ground source sucking our Oregon water supply dry?
How do we stay hydrated if we do not have a plastic water bottle?
Use a refillable container, buy bulk, buy something made of paper, and make sure what the product is made from will not kill fish, or other sea mammals. Think ahead each time you will be out and about and always be prepaid so you do not have to buy products that are truly unnecessary.
