Corporate Accountability International is currently running a petition to make our national parks bottled water free. The petition is 3,760 signatures away (1,240 total as of February 27th) from their goal of 5,000 signatures. A few National Parks have already taken the initiative and banned the sale of bottled water, including Grand Canyon National Park, Saguaro National Park, and Zion National Park. It just takes a few seconds to sign the online petition which will "...help bottled water take a hike out of our national parks by phasing out sales as soon as possible. We can promote and protect the environment, and the tap, by making clear that water, like our parks, is not for sale and deserves our long-term investment," you may also consider checking out Corporate Accountability International's Think Outside the Bottle campaign.

UPDATE (March 24) : The petition got a big boost and is now only 448 signatures away from the goal of 5000, click here to sign the petition.

  2. According to the article from Bloomberg News, Japan ranks 10th in the world in water resources, and has less regulation on foreigners purchasing land. The majority of the land purchases come from China-based companies and investors, some of whom plan to tap into the groundwater and export bottled water back to China. http://plumbingjudge.com/
