WORLD SCIENCE FESTIVAL BRISBANE // Water Talks: The Inconvenient Truth of Bottled Water

March 25, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Presented at The Edge, SLQ for World Science Festival Brisbane.



It takes almost seven times more water to manufacture and transport a bottle of water than is in the bottle itself.

As we watch the empty vessels of an ever-increasing array of bottled drinking waters wash up on our beaches, one may ask how has the most basic of human rights become an instrument of commercial greed and ecological damage? Join our discussion to uncover how global society was persuaded that bottled is better and why science may convince us otherwise.

This event is part of the World Science Festival Brisbane Water Talks conversation series.
