WHAT: Central Piedmont Community College’s (CPCC) Center for Sustainability, Green Drinks of Charlotte and Habitat and Wildlife Keepers (HAWK), are pleased to present a special screening of the award-winning documentary “Tapped” on CPCC’s Central Campus.
“Tapped” examines the big business of bottled water and takes a behind-the-scenes look at this unregulated industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity – water.
Directed by Stephanie Soechtig and produced by the same team who made “Who Killed the Electric Car,” this inspiring documentary trails the bottled water industry, painting a powerful portrait of the lives affected by this industry and the businesses and individuals caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water.
Don’t miss this must-see film which will leave you begging the question, “Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any article of clothing?”
