Fiji Water Filters Into Fox, Cousteau

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Our September/October 2009 Fiji Water expose had a big impact, and it’s still going strong. Today the story was tweeted by Fox News anchor Julie Banderas… and by Celine Cousteau, granddaughter of filmmaker Jacques Cousteau and daughter of oceanic explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau. Celine Cousteau travels the world on expeditions, and her family owns the Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort, an “Eco Friendly Resort” on the island of Vanua Levu in Fiji. I’m not sure if the Cousteau resort stocks Fiji Water, but it’s good to see the story strike close to Fiji Water’s home.
