PepsiCo - Stop polluting water, say NO to fuel from tar sands!
To PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi
PepsiCo prides itself on your commitment to water stewardship. In particular, your company states, "We know that water is inherently local, so we strive to work on specific solutions for watersheds where we operate, to make more and better water available to local communities."Yet PepsiCo's continued use of fuel made from tar sands tells a different story. Tar sands mining poisons vast amounts of water every day with ammonia, cyanide, arsenic and other known carcinogens, which are then dumped into massive leaky "lakes" of poisonous wastewater.Significantly increased levels of these carcinogens have been found in watersheds as far as 50 miles away from the tar sands mining sites. Local indigenous communities have reported unusually high rates of rare types of cancer associated with these toxins, along with fish with severe deformities.
