Three students from Washington DC, Bria Snell, India Skinner and Mikayla Sharrieff, collectively known as S3 Trio, have been named as the only East Coast finalists in the NASA “OPSPARC” Challenge for coming up with an innovative way of cleaning up lead-contaminated drinking water. Â
S3 TrioÂ at Work
The all-female team identified that water from public school fountains often contained impurities, putting the health of students at risk. Â
â€śOur product will purify public school systems’ water by detecting impurities such as chlorine, copper, and bromine.â€ťÂ ~ S3 TrioÂ
The dynamic 11th graders opted for a community project, working on the serious health issues posed …
So, we learned that applying Tyent ionized hydrogen water to your skin helps to turn back the clock. This revelation means you can ditch the expensive anti-aging creams and stay looking youthful the natural way!
But how about inside your body? Â We can see the effect of aging on our skin, but we canâ€™t see how it affects our bodies. Â Plenty of people will vouch for the fact that you can feel it though! Age is blamed for aches, pains, lethargy and a host of other ailments that somehow seem to creep up on us.
Change Your Water, Change Your Life
This is where drinking Tyent Water can really make the kind of difference that changes your …
Itâ€™s almost funny. Â The FDA is militant about not allowing perfectly edible and delicious unpasteurized Camembert and many other legendary cheeses into the country, but it is far more laid back when it comes to the controversial chemical BPA â€“ linked to low birth weight and certain types of cancer.
According to the FDA, unlike a decent wheel of Brie de Meaux, BPA is “probably alright in very small doses.”Â Weâ€™re paraphrasing here, by the way, but you get the gist.
“Probably alright in very small doses” is fine when youâ€™re talking about certain things. Â Cleaning your teeth with the kidsâ€™ toothpaste for a day because youâ€™ve run …
The PR job is a good one, to be fair. Â When it comes to bottled water, people are prepared to throw a lot of money at it, regardless of the environmental price and the sky-high cost to their pocket. Â
Bottled water costs more than tap water. Â A lot more. Â In fact, a new report from The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) found that some people are paying an astonishing 10,000 times more per gallonÂ for bottled water than they are for the water that comes out of the tap.
But hereâ€™s the next shocker: frequently the water that you buy in a bottle isâ€¦ermâ€¦tap water. Â

In early February, the 18th annual Great American Water Taste Test took place at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Â
Over two days, water samples from around the country were blind-tasted by a panel of judges, tasked with finding a winner. Â What are they looking for? Â Taste, smell and clarity are the watchwordsÂ according to The National Rural Water Association, the main sponsor of the event.
Water Good Winner!
After some serious sipping, the gold medal was awarded to Arcadia Water Utility of Wisconsin, which beat off some stiff competition from the City of Salisbury, MD Paleo Water and the Southeast Water Users District, …

The day of love is almost upon us. Â Whether you think itâ€™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 Julietâ€™s beauty to the sun; youâ€™ll be hard pushed to avoid it.
Go Hearts or Go Home
Manufacturers and stores seemed locked in an unspoken battle to make as many things as possible heart-shaped. Â If youâ€™re marking the day of romance at home, why not pick up a pair of heart-shaped tuna steaks? Â Theyâ€™ll go pretty well with the heart shaped fondant potatoes and heart-shaped chocolate mousse. Â The message? Â Go hearts …
The cancer-causing contaminant Chromium-6, brought to the public gaze by Erin Brockovich, is at levels exceeding public health goals in 50 states.
Millions of people are trying to find a workable solution to protect themselves and their families and to avoid drinking contaminated water. Â
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. Â After all, it removes contaminants and thatâ€™s the goal, right?
Unfortunately, reverse osmosis is not a solution on either front. Â On a city-wide basis, aside from the prohibitive cost of building the plant, the stripped-back water â€“ though admittedly free of contaminants …
Now, itâ€™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. Â
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.Â
â€śWe stand committed to helping Americans better understand recycling and its potential for economic, environmental and community benefits by working with all stakeholdersâ€”manufacturers; the waste management industry; government entities; other nonprofit

Letâ€™s start by saying that if you already pull on your running shoes as soon as the alarm goes off, or if you cycle to your Bodypump class three times a week, you can safely skip this blog and go and enjoy a chilled glass of Tyent water and pat yourself on the back!
However, if, like many of us, your sports gear has gathered a little dust lately, and your gym subscription is starting to feel more like a charitable donation you make every month, then maybe you could use a little motivation to improve your fitness levels in 2018!
