WASHINGTON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Press Club Newsmakers Committee will host Kim Jeffery, Chairman of Nestle Waters North America, at a Newsmaker forum in the Club's Zenger Room at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, April 4th in the National Press Building, 529 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C.


Jeffery will focus on policy issues, health benefits and environmental controversies surrounding the growth of bottled water. Concord, MA made history this year by becoming the first town to ever ban the sale of water, citing environmental concerns over the plastic bottles. Critics question the logic of banning bottled water at a time when the nation faces a serious obesity crisis. Nestle Waters North America is the number one bottled water company in the United States and the third largest non-alcoholic beverage company in the country.
