Inside Water

“Water is everything. I think this is the final chance for the human being to stay on this planet. If this time we cannot resonate with water, our human being future on this planet will dissolve.”

~ Dr. Masaru Emoto “The Hidden Messages in Water”

The World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF report that more than 2.6 billion people – over 40 percent of the world’s population – do not have basic sanitation, and more than one billion people still use unsafe sources of drinking water.

What if You discovered You are unknowingly consuming contaminated water while contributing to water pollution?  That’s exactly what happens every time You consume a bottle of water.

Marcus Eriksen, director of project development at California’s Algalita Marine Research Foundation, rafted 2,000 miles down the Mississippi River on a craft constructed from plastic bottles.  He caught and ate fish during his journey, and he found bits of undigested plastic inside the fish that they had ingested from the the polluted water.  The bits of plastic come from discarded plastic bottles and plastic shopping bags.

Watch this video, and read below to learn more about what’s really in your water.

* Plastic production accounts for an estimated 4 percent of energy consumption in the U.S.
* Americans buy an estimated 29.8 billion plastic water bottles every year
* Nearly eight out of every 10 bottles will end up in a landfill.
* Less than 1 percent of all plastics is recycled. Almost all plastics are incinerated or end up in a landfill.
* Recycling a single plastic bottle can conserve energy to light a 60-watt light bulb for up to six hours.
* Recycled plastic bottles can be made into clothing, carpeting, detergent bottles and lumber.
* More than 80 percent of U.S. households have access to a plastics recycling program through curbside or community drop-off centers.
* Producing new plastic products from recycled materials uses two-thirds less energy than required to make products from raw (virgin) materials. It also reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Bottled Water versus Tap & Filtered Tap Water

* Home water filtration offers better quality water than bottled.
* Home water filtration is 1/10th the cost of bottled.
* Home water filtration is far more convenient, “Pure water on tap!”
* Home water filtration is virtually pollution free!

The U.S. FDA says: “Companies that promote bottled water as being safer than tap water are defrauding the American public.”  In March of 1999, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) released a report called “Bottled Water: Pure Drink or Pure Hype?”

* City tap water can have no confirmed E.Coli or fecal coliform bacteria. FDA bottled water rules include no such prohibition (a certain amount of any type of coliform bacteria is allowed in bottled water).
* City tap water, from surface water, must be filtered and disinfected. In contrast, there are no federal filtration or disinfection requirements for bottled water.
* Most cities using surface water have had to test for Cryptosporidium or Giardia, two common water pathogens, that can cause diarrhea and other intestinal problems, yet bottled water companies have no such test.
* City tap water must meet standards for certain important toxic or cancer-causing chemicals, such as phthalate (a chemical that can leach from plastic, including plastic bottles); some in the industry persuaded FDA to exempt bottled water from the regulations regarding these chemicals.
* City water systems must issue annual “right to know” reports, telling consumers what is in their water. Bottlers successfully killed a “right to know” requirement for bottled water.
