A sustainable renewable resource… which you may remember from geography in primary school; where rain falls from the sky and we have precipitation, evaporation and condensation. Our Earth is 71% water, even our bodies are made up of 50-65% of water.

So, what is the best way to get this precious renewable resource back into our body? We already know it is important to stay hydrated and that drinking plenty of water throughout the day is good for our health, and of course coffee and soda’s do not substitute for water.

We also know that consuming bottled water is bad for the environment, all those plastic bottles generally end up in land fill, in some way or another whether they are recycled or not. Did you also know that plastic water bottles, including refillable or reusable plastic water bottles and even plastic water tanks can be dangerous to our health? When the plastic changes temperature, it also changes the molecular structure of the plastic and therefore leaches into our drinking water.

What about tap water? I hear you say, doesn’t exactly taste the best does it? That’s because tap water can contain toxins such as chlorine, pesticides, heavy metals, radioactive material and other nasties.

So, what is the sustainable solution that contributes to our health without hurting the earth and the environment?

Invest in a good quality water filter and refill a glass or stainless steel (not aluminium) drinking container and wash it out regularly. Bottoms Up!
