Nestle Pays Only $524 to Extract 27,000,000 Gallons of California Drinking Water




Have we reported ANYTHING good about Nestle? Ever? Well, we aren’t starting now.

California has been experiencing a drought and even with all their rain this year they are still in a drought. In fact, even if it rained for a month straight, they would still be in a drought. Given that truth, you would think that Nestle would know better than to be bottling water from natural springs in the San Bernardino National Forest (oh, and they also collected 51 million gallons of groundwater from the same area). But, I suppose the higher ups would have to have a conscience.

The best part of this is that they are doing it all with an expired permit.

Nestle is a thief.



From the article:

“Nestle has somehow managed the most sweetheart of deals for its Arrowhead 100% Mountain Spring Water, which is ostensibly sourced from Arrowhead Springs — and which also happens to be located on public land in a national forest.

In 2013, the company drew 27 million gallons of water from 12 springs in Strawberry Canyon for the brand — apparently by employing rather impressive legerdemain — considering the permit to do so expired in 1988.”

As you can imagine, Nestle wants everyone to know they are taking good care of the land AND that they have paid the expired permit’s annual fee- IN FULL- every cent of the $524 dollars.
