Swiss Company Profiting By Selling California’s Scarce WaterLeave a comment

Using tribal rights and loopholes, Nestlé S.A., a Swiss corporation, is selling bottled water pumped from ground water in a state that is suffering a terrible drought and water crisis. You read that right. Californians are being asked to sacrifice, while Nestlé sells California’s water in wasteful little bottles and makes an enormous profit.
While it may technically be legal, it is completely unethical and is bad for California. But it is good for Nestlé shareholders, so they feel just fine doing it.
