Rio+20: Sponsored by Coca-Cola?
Our “woman” on the ground at the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, International Policy Director Darcey O’Callaghan, sent us this picture from a dining hall at the conference. A picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words. It puts this new action by our friends at Friends of the Earth International into perspective, doesn’t it?
Meanwhile, PepsiCo was just honored last week with a prestigious award from the Stockholm International Water Institute for water efficiency. Check out what our Executive Director Wenonah Hauter and Board Chair Maude Barlow had to say about that here (hint: nothing good whatsoever.)
It’s not too late to tell the U.S. representative to the conference, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, to protect our common resources—like water—as a public trust.
