Water Bottle Life Cycle

All this energy & waste JUST so you can have that bottle of water?  
Maybe next time you could think, Is it really worth it?

All the Single Ladies! All the Single Landies! Put your hands up … and the plastic down.

A study undertaken at the Goethe University in Frankfurt has found that estrogenic compounds leach from PET bottles into the water and leading researcher, Martin Wagner, has decided drinking tap water is safer than bottled. Tests they carried out on snails placed in these bottles, showed that the snails in the PET bottles had twice as many eggs as the glass bottle dwelling snails. So the bottles that were considered safe because they contained no BPA’s may not be safe after all and seem to have the same effect as BPA products

The Snail Effect

German mineral water comes from natural springs. So, to see if the estrogenic compounds were actually coming from the water itself, Wagner emptied the bottles and replaced the water with a pure snail medium and a tiny species of snail that is especially sensitive to estrogenic compounds.

Eight weeks later, female snails living in plastic bottles had more than twice as many embryos inside their bodies compared to the glass-grown snails.

“Something from the plastic,” says Wagner, “must have leached out and changed the reproductive patterns of our snails.”

“Having done all of these experiments, I started drinking tap water,” says Wagner. “It might have other stuff in it, but at least it doesn’t have estrogenic compounds.”

So, in essence, unless you are ready to have a child, or twenty, be sure to take precaution. Try a re-useable stainless steel bottle next time 😉

The site will never lie, just inform. If you think it’s harsh, then make a difference. Make it so this is not the truth. Make it so that this is not our future.

Yeah, I tapped that… but not anymore.

It’s amazing the impact we have on people’s lives and we didn’t even know it. Here’s your chance to shine a light on the dirty little secret in your fridge. WATER PRIVATIZATION is unnecessary and we don’t have to let it continue. You can choose to either give them [corporations] the power by purchasing “their” water, or you can choose to stop the damage that’s being created.

Don’t be naïve. Get over yourself and take a peek

What If the Media Said, “Taking a kerosene bath once a week will reduce your chances of diabetes.”

Would you take it at face value? Or would you want to investigate the matter further? I don’t know about you, but I would be a little leery hopping in a tub of kerosene. So why is it that when we hear advertisements on TV or online for how to ‘be healthy’ by drinking more bottled water that we just go with it? Maybe it’s because we already know the dangers of kerosene, and we have yet to realize the danger in bottled water.

In 1992 roughly 2,300,000 gallons of water was bottled and sold to the US market. That’s a LOT of selling people stuff they already have (water is a FREE resource). Good marketing tactic? If you think so, then keep reading.

What about today? Twenty years later, statistics put US water bottle sales at about 9.1 BILLBION gallons. Not only is it a waste of YOUR money (did I get your attention yet?) But it is also really bad for your health, and the environment. Check back later and I’ll tell you more gruesome details.

Thanks for reading,
