If you haven’t already learned of it, a home drinking water filter is an eco friendly product. Think about it for just a minute, and I am sure that you will see what I mean. The reason that we use drinking water filters in the first place is to keep the thousands of pollutants present in our groundwater system from entering our homes and affecting our health.
What we typically never consider is this : If the filter we are using is either reducing or eliminating the toxins that are flowing through our taps, then they are also stopping them from entering the wastewater system. Once water has gone down our drains after use, they are allowed to flow right back to where they started, with chemical contaminants and all.
The water treatment facilities are not equipped for the effective removal of chemical contaminants whether the water is traveling to or from our homes. There will always be chemicals present in our drinking water, and there is not a whole lot we can do so far as eliminating them completely. We can, however, help to keep their levels under control through the use of eco friendly products such as drinking water filters.
We never really consider how many chemical agents are flowing through our showerhead on any given day either. Did you know that you consume up to 6,000 times more chemicals by breathing in shower vapors every day, than by consuming a gallon of unfiltered drinking water. Deadly carcinogens such as chlorine can be mostly prevented through the use of a showerhead filter in your bathroom.
90% of the chlorine and other toxins in your shower water can be removed from the vapors you breathe, as well as 90% being removed from the environment by this eco friendly product. There is more that you can do in order to help yourself and to save the environment, such as ceasing to support the use of prepackaged plastic containers of water.
These plastic water bottles that you drink from contain carcinogenic chemicals known as phthalates, which leech out of the plastic and into the water that you are drinking. These carcinogenic agents are also being allowed to seep into the groundwater system when released by decomposing bottles sitting in landfills. There are 60,000,000 plastic water bottles disposed of in the U.S. alone, every day.
There are eco friendly products to help you stop this sort of contamination too, as well as take care of your health. What you should do is invest in a set of stainless steel food grade aqua-canteens, or sealable glass water bottles. Many of the companies that sell drinking water and showerhead filters offer these items for sale, and they are perfect for use with your drinking water system.
I know that you want to protect your family, and help save the environment. What better way to do both than with an eco friendly product such as a drinking water filter, showerhead filter, and re-usable non-plastic travel containers?
