Penn State Berks Sustainability Team presents Tapped

Room 151, Franco Building, Penn State Berks, Reading, Pennsylvania
FREE and open to the campus community

Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce? Stephanie Soechtig's debut feature is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water. From the producers of "Who Killed the Electric Car" and "I.O.U.S.A.," this timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water. From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public's right to water.

The Penn State Berks Sustainability Team, led by Mahsa Kazempour, associate professor of science education, has a variety of activities and events scheduled in April for the campus' first annual Sustainability Month celebration. These activities and events, planned and coordinated by various faculty, staff, and students, will focus on raising awareness and encouraging personal and community action.
