The Mariana Trench in the western Pacific Ocean is almost 7 miles deep. Â Its perpetually black depths are commonly referred to as the most remote place on the entire planet. Â Extraordinary creatures survive in the dark with water pressure of eight tons per square inch. Â But something else has been discovered in this inaccessible ocean trench. Â Astonishing levels of man-made pollution, along with plastic bags and soda cans. Â
Plastics on the Menu
Weâ€™re steadily choking our planet with plastic, according to recent research. Â Up to 13 million tons of plastic finds it way into our oceans every single year, where it can then be ingested by wildlife. Â Of course, …
It hasnâ€™t been a great couple of months to be in the soda industry.Â 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.Â 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 todayâ€™s consumer.
Fresh, clean laundry makes me happy.Â Gathering it from the line outside, or pulling it from the dryer feels great. Â Iâ€™ll happily outsource most household chores given half the chance, but the laundry I keep for myself.
Wash Day Blues?
So given this love affair with clean laundry, I was pretty horrified to realize that so many of the products we use to make our clothes and bedding feel wonderful are actually really, really bad for us.
We hope youâ€™re loving our 10-part series on how a water ionizer compares to other means of getting your drinking water.Â So far, weâ€™ve looked at a few types of machine and equipment, and today weâ€™re examining how water ionizers stack up against the ubiquitous bottled water.
Have You Got the Bottle?Â
Bottled water is undeniably convenient.Â 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.Â Mineral water, spring waterâ€¦even alkaline water is available in a bottle.Â Importantly, itâ€™s also …

On the 2nd August, Bloomberg.com published a report stating that bottled water is poised to outstrip soda sales, a new phenomenon which industry experts believe owes as much to the highly publicized water crisis which began (publicly at any rate) in Flint, MI., as it does to any real sea change in our health habits.
Just How Bad is Soda?
Even fans of soda know that thereâ€™s little to recommend it, in terms of what it contains; and in fact thereâ€™s mounting evidence that soda is actively harmful to our health.
â€śSoft drink consumers are being exposed to an avoidable and unnecessary cancer risk from an ingredient that is
Itâ€™s not just us that need hydrating a little more now that spring is drawing to end and summer will shortly be tuning up.Â If youâ€™re a gardener, then you probably have some seedlings demanding your attention, as their rootballs get bigger and those new shoots start looking like â€śrealâ€ť plants.Â Did you know that as well as delivering all of the health benefits that youâ€™d expect, alkaline water can also help out in the garden?
The Nursery Stage
When plants are tiny, itâ€™s sometimes hard to work out their water needs.Â Unfortunately, once a vulnerable new plant is well and truly dehydrated, with drooping leaves and a bent stem, …
And of course, if youâ€™re a gardener, then it is, quite frankly, the most exciting time of the whole year!Â Finally, you can start sowing those seeds that youâ€™ve been itching to get your hands on all winter and begin the obsessive watching for signs of tiny stems unfolding from their seed cases.
And did you know that your growing efforts can be helped along with …
