Coal Ash Ponds – Are They Contaminating Your Water?  

Posted by: Rhona Reid On March 22, 2018 12:00 pm

 
Look, don’t shoot the messenger, but there’s something else to worry about in America’s water.  

Is there coal ash contamination near your town?

Bosses at coal-burning power plants country-wide are required to file reports with the Environmental Protection Agency this month, looking into the toxins that are being released into groundwater from vast, unlined “ponds” containing coal ash and debris.

“Coal ash ponds need to be addressed as potential environmental and human health issues.”

~ Avner Vengosh, Professor of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Duke University

Coal Ash Court Cases

130 million tons of coal ash is produced each year.  Arsenic, Chromium-6, mercury and radium are just a few of the dangerous substances potentially leaching into the water supply.

The Best Valentine’s Gift Ever!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 13, 2018 7:00 am

 
The day of love is almost upon us.  Whether you think it’s a cynical ploy to extract whatever disposable income you have left after the Christmas frenzy or the most romantic thing since Romeo scaled a balcony to compare Juliet’s beauty to the sun; you’ll be hard pushed to avoid it.

Give your Valentine the best gift EVER this year.
Go Hearts or Go Home

Manufacturers and stores seemed locked in an unspoken battle to make as many things as possible heart-shaped.  If you’re marking the day of romance at home, why not pick up a pair of heart-shaped tuna steaks?  They’ll go pretty well with the heart shaped fondant potatoes and heart-shaped chocolate mousse.  The message?  Go hearts

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

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,

Is a Water Ionizer Much Better than a Water Purifying Pitcher?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On July 13, 2017 12:00 pm

 
There’s a lot of competition for your money when it comes to different ways of drinking clean, safe water.  Many people are unsure about how clean their regular tap water is.  Understandably, they search for an alternative.

This can’t compare to a Tyent ionizer.

Water ionizers might cost more than water pitchers, but does the performance even compare?

Well, let’s see.  A water-purifying pitcher is often better than nothing, but honestly?  It’s a little like comparing a bicycle with a Ferrari.  But why?

  1. How Clean is Your Water?

A top-of-the-range water purifier is capable of slightly improving the quality of your source water and removing some unwanted elements.  However, it’s more likely that the less sophisticated filters (that need …

Posted by: Rhona Reid On July 6, 2017 12:00 pm

 
…until you read this!

Why not?  I mean, what could go wrong?  Well, like most products these days, there are definitely water ionizers that you should avoid!

Is Kangen Water the Only True Ionized Alkaline Water?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On June 8, 2017 12:00 pm

 
Well, is it?  Of course not!  That’s a little like asking if Chanel No. 5 is the only perfume. One of the first fragrances to gain international recognition and celebrity endorsement (Marilyn Monroe was a fan) — even the iconic No. 5 cannot claim to be the only true perfume out there.  By the same token, Kangen Water is not the only ionized alkaline water!

The original is not always the best.
A Brief History of Water Ionizers

Originating from Japan, Kangen ionizers were among the first domestic water ionizers to become widely available.  Back then, there was little to no competition in the field.  Now?  It’s a very different story.

Who’s the Best Right Now?

Tyent has won …
