La Quinta Sprouts subject of nationwide Nestle protest

Activists arguing that Nestle’s bottling of water from the San Bernardino National Forest is illegal due to a long-expired permit gathered Saturday at Sprouts Farmers Market locations across the U.S., including one in La Quinta, in order to protest the chain’s sale of Nestle Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water.

The protest, headed by the Courage Campaign Institute and Story of Stuff Project, was planned for 18 Sprouts locations across the western half of the country, targeting the major retailer because of its advertised commitment to sustainability.
