Nestle is using water from Michigan for their bottled water industry and the Michigan groundwater is a higher quality. There is also a protest from Michigan that the water bottling plants are causing damage to the state of Michigan. The economic factors of bottled water are not the only consideration, the plastic bottles are a waste product that the nation is burdened with from the water industry.
Michigan is a beautiful landscape. It is surrounded by fresh lakes on almost all sides. These are the most beautiful freshwater lakes in the entire world. Michigan has the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinac Island and the Pictured Rocks. Indiana does not nearly have this much natural beauty. For these reasons, Michigan water is better.
There is no scientific evidence to suggest that Michigan's groundwater is in no way superior to the water of similar states such as Indiana in terms of its content. The most likely reason that Nestle selected Michigan as the location where they would harvest groundwater concern accessible locations and favourable business rates in the state as opposed to the actual quality of the water.
Do you think Nestle from Switzerand would pay attention if Michigan people bought water that wasn't Ice Mountain or any other brand name used by Nestle? Clearly, money talks to these people. It is continually being replenished through the same processes that got it there in the first place. The problem is when it is being taken faster than it can be replaced.
