Nestlé Continues Stealing World’s Water During Drought

Published on September 29, 2016 by   ·   No Comments


Nestlé is draining California aquifers. From Sacramento alone they take 80 MILLION gallons annually. They then sells the people’s water back to them at huge profit under dozens of popular brand names.

Nestlé has been draining California aquifers at an alarming rate. In Sacramento alone 80 they extract MILLION gallons annually.  Nestlé then turns around and sells the people’s own water back to them at a massive profit in the form of bottle water. But this is not even the worst of it, the multinational mega corporation has also been extracting this water with a permit that expired over 2 decades ago! 


This has inspired a law suit against the company but we all know that won’t result in any actual justice since the law system capitulates to who ever has the most money and can continuously fight it out in court.

This inexcusable behavior on the mega corporations part has only been able to take place with help from the government. People, however, are growing angry and tired of this unacceptable behavior which is ultimately costing them massive amount of money.Worse still, is this company has literally single handily caused a drought! Please think about that for a moment, and let it sink in.


The city of Sacramento is in a record drought that has lasted several years – yet the multi billion dollar Nestlé Corporation continues to bottle public city water and then sell it back to the people at a huge profit. Do I have to explain how criminal and sick this is?

A coalition, which includes the crunchnestle alliance, the Story of Stuff Project, along with co-plaintiffs the Center for Biological Diversity and the Courage Campaign Institute have come together to file a lawsuit against the unethical corporation and charge that the company is draining up to 80 million gallons of water each year from Sacramento aquifers during the drought and don’t even have a valid permit to do so (not that would make it in any better either).

“Nestlé pays only 65 cents for each 470 gallons it pumps out of the ground – the same rate as an average residential water user. But the company can turn the area’s water around, and sell it back to Sacramento at mammoth profits,” the coalition  went on record as saying.
