Water, Water Everywhere…

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 7, 2018 12:00 pm

 
It sounds obvious, but water is everywhere at the moment.  From Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water cleaning up during awards season; the reckless craze for so-called “Raw Water”; the fact that South Africa’s Cape Town is about to reach Day Zero when the water runs out, and closer to home, that America’s own water supply is barely out of the news these days.  

Water is making headlines every day.
What Do We Want From Water?

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

Why Reverse Osmosis Is NOT the Answer to Chromium-6

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 6, 2018 7:00 am

 
The cancer-causing contaminant Chromium-6, brought to the public gaze by Erin Brockovich, is at levels exceeding public health goals in 50 states.

Chromium-6 – Here to Stay?

Millions of people are trying to find a workable solution to protect themselves and their families and to avoid drinking contaminated water.  

What Reverse Osmosis Water Does to the Pipeline

A reverse osmosis water system is sometimes touted as a possible solution on both a domestic and municipal level.  After all, it removes contaminants and that’s the goal, right?

Unfortunately, reverse osmosis is not a solution on either front.  On a city-wide basis, aside from the prohibitive cost of building the plant, the stripped-back water – though admittedly free of contaminants

The Environmentally Friendly Odd Couple?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 30, 2018 7:00 am

 
Back in November last year we talked about America Recycles Day, a great cause supported by Keep America Beautiful.

We all need to do more of this.

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.  

Planet-Friendly Partnership

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

A Raw Deal?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 18, 2018 12:00 pm

 
The latest trend that seems to be gathering attention in 2018 is the craze for drinking so-called “raw water.”

Raw Water is not necessarily pure water.

When a small, Oregon-based start-up company started selling “pristine mountain spring water” to people in the San Francisco area, they tapped into the fashionable notion that the more “natural” something is, then the better for you it will be.

What is “Raw Water”?

Raw water is, quite simply, water that springs from the earth; or in this particular case, from “an ancient aquifer.” It is completely untreated and unfiltered.

One of several companies selling raw water around the country says that filtering and treating water to remove contaminants “disrupts healthy bacterias” that would

Happy New Year – Guaranteed!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 2, 2018 7:00 am

 
Before Christmas, one of my young nephews was desperate (in the way that only a 7 year old boy at Christmas can be) for a particular toy.  

We hope you survived Christmas better than this!
Thanks Santa!

A large number of painstakingly written letters and notes to Father Christmas that politely requested this small, brightly colored object were posted and stuffed up the chimney.  On Christmas morning, amid shouts and whoops of happiness, came the most ecstatic one, as my nephew finally opened the toy of his dreams.

Well, That Didn’t Last Long…

There followed around 30 minutes of frenzied, joyful play before one part of the precious toy became detached from the other, in a way that wasn’t

Crisis in Texas – Is Reverse Osmosis Water as Good as a Water Ionizer?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On October 3, 2017 7:00 am

 
Our thoughts are with all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey, and it’s wonderful to see the heroic relief efforts of individuals and the large-scale aid that has been arriving since the Tropical storm hit.  

Crisis is often followed by kindness.
Helping Those in Need

Among the companies delivering assistance – in this case 1 million bottles of water – is NestlĂ©, in an act of charity that will help to repair its image after recent negative publicity.  

Big Companies With Big Hearts

There was also a big-hearted offer from Blackwater Draw Brewing Company, promising that affected residents could collect as much water as they needed.  But this isn’t regular water – it’s reverse osmosis water, used in the

Help! My Friend Is Trying to Sell Me a Water Ionizer

Posted by: Rhona Reid On August 8, 2017 7:00 am

 
There’s a special kind of shadow that descends over even the most loving friendships once one party – I’ll call her “Jane” – discovers the wonders of Multi-Level Marketing, or “MLM.”  I’ve seen friends there before with candles and “natural” skincare products of dubious origin.  This time, it was the turn of Kangen and their money-spinning (but not saving!) modus operandi.  

What do you mean you don’t want to buy a Kangen Machine?
Friends with Vested Interests?

“Jane” started to talk about how her friends should buy a water ionizer.  Fine, you might think.  But we should only buy a Kangen Ionizer.  From her.  To be fair, I loved the idea of the health benefits of ionized water,
