Wow, thanks for this post. This is so relevant. It helps to talk about how we got to this point, what roles we play, and where we go from here.

After reading this, I checked out the current Keep America Beautiful website: "As national parks face problems with unmanaged waste during the government shutdown, Keep America Beautiful and Nestlé Waters North America are teaming up to help mobilize affiliate organizations and volunteers across the country to clean up these shared public spaces."

This is the same Nestle who paid only $200 a year to privatize and bottle clean water from the aquifer near Flint, Michigan--privatizing a public resource, for almost nothing.

Now that there is a mess, it's "shared public space" again, and they are calling on the public to volunteer to clean it up.
