Bottled water has become the fastest growing segment in the entire beverage industry. It is also one of the biggest polluting industries.
More and more environmentalists are beginning to question the purpose of lugging heavy, inefficient, polluting plastic water bottles all over the earth.
The WWF estimates that around 1.5 million tons of plastic are used globally each year in the production of water bottles. The Swiss based World Wide Fund for Nature, argues strongly that the distribution of bottled water requires substantially more fuel than delivering tap water, especially since over 22 million tons of the bottled liquid is transferred each year from country to country.
Then there are the disposal problems, it takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to degrade in a landfill. Land where mineral fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides have seeped into surface and subsurface waters contaminating human consumption and disrupting delicate ecosystems.
Given waters importance in our daily lives, what can we do? Nobody wants to drink unfiltered tap water, so there’s no alternative!
Well actually there is..
Each person that uses a water filter can eliminate the production, transportation and disposal of hundreds of plastic bottles each year.
Pure Water Canaries systems give you great tasting, healthy water from any tap in your house. In addition, the gentle softening qualities of the water filtration system also improve the hardness of your water. You’ll use less soap, shampoo and detergent, which is better for your hair, skin and clothes. In addition, because all but the good minerals are filtered out there is the added benefit of reduced scaling so your expensive hot water appliances last longer.
Convenient filtered water without all the negative environmental impacts.
