Let's talk about Nestle bottling water in CA. First, if you get your water from a bottle, or in a glass from your faucet, it does not matter. Water comes from the same place. If Nestle bottles me 16 ounces over there, I'm not going to use 16 ounces over here. It is a zero sum game. Next, the amount of water Nestle bottles over an entire year, went out to the ocean over the last four days. Nestle saves our water and bottles it. Our government puts it in the sea. Lastly, Nestle was literally chased out of California in Feb 2107 by radical environmentalists. 1,200 people lost their jobs, and our state lost the tax revenue. Nestle USA generated sales of $9.7 billion in 2015, making many well known products besides water. Their headquarters is now in Virginia, but lingering in California are the remnants of the defeated environmental lawsuits that chased them away.
