This week Poland Spring water – a sister company of Nestle got caught false advertising their water.
They advertise spring water that turns out to be tap water.
Nestle has been exposed draining lakes around the US too. The problem is that they have so much power that when something like this happens they can simply start another sister company and keep doing the same thing – leaving the consumer to have no idea what they’re supporting.
We have to start making responsible choices and avoid these unethical companies. That starts with getting to know who we buy from and support only those that choose to act ethically. Or even better is to search out those rare companies actively trying to make a positive difference. It’s for the betterment of humanity as a whole. If we stop purchasing, they either change or go out of business. Added up our choice can make a big difference.
