California will run out of water very soon.
According to NASA's new report,
California only has enough water to get it through the next year. People are under strict water-saving measures; farmers are struggling to keep their crops alive.
We can stop this. Nestlé's already feeling pressure in Canada -- last month, we hit front page news for our campaign to stop the giant corporation from withdrawing Canadians' groundwater at dirt cheap rates, and political parties in Canada are debating the policy. If we're to stop Nestlé from sucking California dry, we have to keep up the pressure.
Tell Nestlé to stop depleting California's precious water resources.
As California's water supplies dry up, Nestlé continues to make millions selling bottled water
The biggest victims of this unprecedented drought are California's food crops and the minimum-wage workers who grow them. More than 80% of the world's almonds and nearly half of the USA's fruits and vegetables come from California. As crops sit withering on the vine and tens of thousands of farm workers lose their livelihoods, it's a travesty that precious water is being bottled and sold for profit instead of feeding our crops.
Sign the petition to Nestlé: stop taking water from drought-stricken areas.
