Thanks for printing Peter Bruckland’s commentary about Nestle wanting to come and build a bottling plant in Benner and Spring townships. We cannot trust their motives as has been pointed out in a book written 10 years ago by Elizabeth Royte. In it Nestle is mentioned close to 90 times in the 248 pages of text. Most of which is not in good terms.
We of the Centre Region must continue to do more to protect our water resources, above and below ground, and not allow it to be bottled in plastic and shipped elsewhere.
Both activities are bad for ourselves and the environment. Plastic bottle recycling has not proven to be as popular as originally proposed and storing water in them not as healthy.
Please read “Bottlemania” and you’ll definitely will say “no” to Nestle.
Never miss a local story.
