While a drought continues in America and other parts of the world, the mega corporation Nestlé continues to keep draining water. Nestlé is currently drying up the state of California. They take up to 80 million gallons a year drawn from local aquifers – while Sacramentans (like other Californians) who use a mere 7 to 10 percent of total water used in the State of California, have had severe restrictions and limitations forced upon them. Californians have been fighting the corporation since late 2015. But America is not the only country being affected. Nestlé has over 8,000 brands covering everything from baby food, bottled water, breakfast cereals, coffee and tea, confectionery, dairy products, ice cream, frozen food, pet foods, and snacks. All those brands and all those things means a lot of labor across the globe. Some not so ethical. They even admitted to using child and slave labor, but only to settle the claims against them out of court. It also means using corrupted ethics to sell products, like in the 70s when they sold breast milk formula as a substitute for actual breast milk and killed infants that lead to a boycott. But Nestlé is still able to exist. Still able to steal, connive and kill.
