“Get Off the Bottle” tour coming to Norman

Please join NSN, OUr Earth, and the Sierra Club Red Earth Group for a free screening of Tapped!, a new documentary about the big business of bottled water. Producer Sarah Olson and Director Stephanie Soechtig will be on hand for a Q&A after the film.

When: 7pm, Tuesday, April 6
Where: Norman High School Auditorium, 911 West Main St.

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? 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.

Tapped’s Producer Sarah Olson and Director Stephanie Soechtig have taken their mobile showroom on the road, collecting pledges from people to reduce their bottled water use and trading empty plastic water bottles for reusable stainless steel Klean Kanteens.  This mobile translucent recycling container began the “Get Off The (h20) Bottle” tour in Los Angeles with an empty cabin that will be filled with the public’s empty water bottles by the time the team ends up in New York City on Earth Day (April 22nd, 2010).
