Who: Crunch Nestlé Alliance
When: Friday, December 4
Where: 8670 Younger Creek Drive, Sacramento, CA
Time: 4 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The “Crunch Nestlé Alliance,” the group that “shut down” the Nestlé Waters bottling plant in Sacramento in March 2015 and October 2014, will be protesting at the plant again on December 4, but this time the alliance is doubling down on a shut down.

This time the group is also going to shut down the Alhambra Water Company, owned by DS Waters of Atlanta, Georgia, located directly across the street from Nestlé Waters. The theme of the protest is “The Grinch Who Stole Our Water,” according to Bob Saunders of the alliance.

Additionally the large amount of plastic waste (water bottles) that is generated by these companies, much of which ends up in our ocean, is another factor in the need to stop these companies from further damaging our environment.”
