This Thursday, February 24, the Vassar Greens Tap That! bottled water campaign will be hosting a movie screening of Tapped, a movie about the bottled water business. This is in an effort to get the Vassar community informed about the problems behind the bottled water industry, as well as to create interest in our Tap That campaign which aims to eliminate bottled water on campus through pledges and selling Vassar Greens bottled water.
The screening will be at 7 PM in the CCMPR. There will be FREE BACIOS as well as an exciting Water Bar!

Here’s some more info on the movie from the website www.tappedthemovie.com:
Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce? Stephanie Soechtig’s debut feature is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water.
From the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car and I.O.U.S.A., this timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never become a commodity: our water.
From the plastic production to the ocean so many of these bottles end up in, this inspiring doc trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory doc shows those caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.
