The Story of Bottled Water

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 22-03-2010 20:36 | Category: Consumerism, Corporate Social Responsibility, Environment



Annie Leonard is becoming famous. I’m sure you know her from The Story of Stuff and The story of Cap & Trade. Now on World Water Day she tells us The Story of Bottled Water.

What’s wrong with this seemingly healthy refreshment? You’ll be shocked to find out that it’s often less clean, less tasty, and way more polluting than the water from your tap. This is the story that water bottlers Coke, Pepsi, and Nestlé don’t want you to hear—but thanks to Annie, millions of you will.

The Story of Bottled Water is the second in a series of six short films the Story of Stuff Project is releasing over the coming year with Free Range Studios and more than a dozen of the world’s leading sustainability organizations.
For this video the partners are: Corporate Accountability International, Environmental Working Group, Food & Water Watch, Pacific Institute, and Polaris Institute.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
