Donate to stop Nestlé and support the community fight-back!

Nestlé pumps up to 4.7 million litres of water every day out of communities in Ontario on two expired permits for its massive bottled water operations. Right now it is fighting with a third community for ownership of a well that local residents need as their current and future drinking water source. Nestlé also operates a water bottling facility in B.C., pumping millions of litres of water from the ground in the shadow of raging wildfires due to extreme drought and worsening climate change.

Nestlé pays virtually nothing for this water, which it then packages in single-use plastic bottles and sells for obscene profit. This must stop now!

Chip in a donation to help the Council of Canadians:

– Pressure governments to put a moratorium on new bottled water permits and phase out bottled water takings altogether.
– Expand our national Boycott Nestlé campaign to raise public awareness about its outrageous water grabs and hit them where it hurts.
– Support communities fighting to protect their local watersheds from Nestlé by building grassroots opposition and passing tough new laws.

Every dollar directly helps the fight to ensure precious freshwater sources are protected for the future generations who will need them most.
