Last year the Colorado Independent reported that Nestle made a deal with Chaffee County to pump millions of gallons of water from springs near the Arkansas River, cart it 6,000 miles a day on the road between Johnson Village and Denver, pour it into bottles and sell it as Arrowhead Springs mineral water. That's the same water that comes out of taps in municipalities across the state, water Coloradans can drink for a fraction of the price Nestle charges. The Chaffee County case was just one flash point in the larger battle over bottled water. Today, the group Online Education is sending around an info-graphic on bottled water prodding Americans to just think about what they're doing, at least a little bit, next time they go to the gym or the corner store or Costco or anywhere bottled water winks at you alluringly from a shelf.
