You already know that drinking lots of water is super important to your health and wellbeing. Water helps detoxify, keeps your digestion in tip top shape and makes your skin glow from the inside out. Unfortunately, tap water is contaminated with pharmaceuticals, microbes, pesticides, plastics, metals, chlorine, fluoride and other toxins. You don’t want this stuff in your body!
YOUR CHALLENGE IS TO UPGRADE YOUR DRINKING WATER TO CLEAN FILTERED WATER THAT DOES NOT COME FROM A PLASTIC BOTTLE. Ban the bottle!
Stop buying bottled water since it contains phthalates or bisphenol A which are toxic petrochemicals. Plastic bottle will take about 450 years to decompose so let’s think about the burden we are creating for our future generations. Drinking liquids from disposable glass bottles is better for our health but it may take up to 1 million years to decompose a glass container!
Here are some options:
- Carbon filters like the Brita. Easy and least expensive option (just remember to change the filter as needed).
- Faucet mounted filtration system (like Pure). Relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
- Reverse osmosis filter. You need a professional to install this system under your kitchen sink, but it’s one of the best investments in your health and home!
Final tip, I use the Lifefactory glass water bottle and carry my filtered water with me everywhere. It has a protective sleeve so even if you drop it it shouldn’t break.
Cheers and let me know how you are doing!
