Water is big news. Of course it is, it’s a massive part of our lives. We depend on it for life itself and yet we’re all guilty of wasting it from time to time. So how did we become so complacent about …
Now, it’s easy to think about the bottled water industry being right at the other end of any “Earth-friendly” scale, but some recent news is heartening and perhaps surprising.
On January 17, at the 2018 Keep America Beautiful National Conference, the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) announced that it would be sponsoring the Keep America Beautiful initiative.
“We stand committed to helping Americans better understand recycling and its potential for economic, environmental and community benefits by working with all stakeholders—manufacturers; the waste management industry; government entities; other nonprofit

The third annual Imagine a Day Without Water took place on the 12th October. Schools and workplaces participated with utilities and water organizations to look at how much we depend on water.
The True Value of Water
The recent hurricanes that have seen thousands of people having their access to clean, safe water cut off, highlight just how vital water is to our health and well being.
Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. Imagine a Day Without Water 2017 is the third annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.
Thousands of people every year are affected by breast cancer, either directly or indirectly. According to the Cancer Statistics Center, 255,180 new cases are anticipated during 2017, which are projected to result in some 41,070 deaths from breast cancer across America before the year is out.
Can We Reduce Our Risk Factors?
Despite these statistics, deaths from breast cancer have been decreasing since 1989, largely due to better detection rates through screening, increased awareness and improved methods of treatment.
So what can we do to help our bodies stay as healthy as possible and actively lower the risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer?

The issue of what’s in the water we drink – and more worryingly – what shouldn’t be in it, has never been more pressing.
Nationwide scandals attached to the potential dangers of drinking tap water have prompted millions of Americans to ask the question, “what exactly are we drinking?”
Many have stopped trusting the municipal water supply altogether. An obvious alternative? Bottled water. Well, sure. It’s convenient and available virtually everywhere. Plus, it’s in a sealed, factory-produced bottle. It’s clean and good for us, right? Well, not always. In fact the EWG has recently published a report on exactly why we should look very closely at the risks of drinking bottled water.

Anyone buying a bottle of Poland Spring Water would be pretty sure that they’re drinking exactly what’s advertised. It’s produced by Nestlé – the world’s biggest packaged food manufacturer – so it must be a trustworthy product, right?
Not so, according to a lawsuit against the giant company, filed by 11 plaintiffs in Connecticut this week.
“A colossal fraud perpetrated against American consumers.”
~ Plaintiffs v. NESTLE WATERS NORTH AMERICA, INC.
The reason for the litigation? Nestlé claims that its water comes from eight natural springs in Maine. The claimants say that seven of those springs are in fact, man-made. Instead of the pure spring water conjured up by labels and advertising, …

It hasn’t been a great couple of months to be in the soda industry. On 20th April this year a report was published by the America Stroke Association that appeared to draw a link between the consumption of artificially sweetened “diet” soda and the risk of suffering a stroke or dementia. A further report from Beverage Marketing Corps pointed to the fact that Americans now officially drink more bottled water than soda.
Coca-Cola responded by announcing job cuts and a new CEO who, it is believed, will try to steer the mighty company towards “healthier drinks” that have more appeal for today’s consumer.
We hope you’re loving our 10-part series on how a water ionizer compares to other means of getting your drinking water. So far, we’ve looked at a few types of machine and equipment, and today we’re examining how water ionizers stack up against the ubiquitous bottled water.
Have You Got the Bottle?
Bottled water is undeniably convenient. Widely available to the point of saturation, to use a suitably watery metaphor; most of us are probably only a few feet away from a bottle of water at any time.
Handily, bottled water comes in lots of different guises to suit your pocket and tastes. Mineral water, spring water…even alkaline water is available in a bottle. Importantly, it’s also relatively …
