'Tapped' showing at Enumclaw High Aug. 18
A documentary taking aim at the bottled water industry is coming to Enumclaw, the result of an ongoing project by teenage activist Austin Schuver.
"Tapped" is not intended to be an unbiased look at a multibillion-dollar industry. Instead, the 75-minute film centers on the potential health risks alleged to be associated with plastic bottles and the methods employed by the industry to gain access to a life-sustaining substance – water.
Schuver's introduction to the bottled water industry came when he was an eighth-grade student at Annie Wright School in Tacoma. He has continued to work on the project now that he attends Enumclaw High School, where he is an incoming sophomore. To continue telling his tale, Schuver has received support locally from Mutual of Enumclaw, Helac Corporation and the Enumclaw Rotary Foundation.
"Tapped" will be shown at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Enumclaw High auditorium. Admission is free, but anyone making a donation will receive a free reusable aluminum bottle.
A trailer for the movie can be viewed at www.tappedthemovie.com.
