The Goldman Environmental Prize is awarded to a small handful of people from around the world in recognition of their grassroots environmental activism. ¬†
Selected by an international jury, this year‚Äôs seven winners came from places as diverse as Vietnam, Colombia, South Africa‚Ä¶and Flint, Michigan. ¬†
A Short History of Environmental Heroism
Just after Flint officials notoriously switched the city water source in April 2014 to save money, LeeAnne Walters started to become concerned that the water she and her four children were drinking was harmful.

Let‚Äôs not beat around the bush. ¬†If we ignore for a moment all the important benefits of hydrogen alkaline water and look purely at the issue of filtration, it‚Äôs no secret that there are cheaper ways to filter your water than with a water ionizer. ¬†
At some point, many people consider buying a jug filter. ¬†Pitchers are cheap and easy to use, but how do they really compare? ¬†
Putting You in The Pitcher

Back in 2016, French multinational corporation Saint-Gobain ‚Äėfessed up to releasing carcinogenic chemicals from its premises in Merrimack, New Hampshire, causing private wells in the area to become contaminated though the local groundwater. ¬†
Bottled Water Hand-Out
Following the spill, bottled water was provided to residents with a private well within a one-mile radius of the plant, which meant supplying around 400 properties with bottled water. ¬†
The state gave Saint-Gobain strict deadlines to fix the problem, requiring the 350-year old corporation to conceive, design and install a water treatment solution to clean up the contamination.
A Satisfactory Solution?
Flash forward to March 2018, and state officials have reached ‚Äúa monumental agreement‚ÄĚ¬†to ensure …
Look, don‚Äôt shoot the messenger, but there‚Äôs something else to worry about in America‚Äôs water. ¬†
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 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. ¬†…
It‚Äôs almost funny. ¬†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 ‚Äď 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.”¬† We‚Äôre paraphrasing here, by the way, but you get the gist.
“Probably alright in very small doses” is fine when you‚Äôre talking about certain things. ¬†Cleaning your teeth with the kids‚Äô toothpaste for a day because you‚Äôve run …
So, we‚Äôve laid bare the extortionate cost¬†of bottled water and highlighted the practice of selling tap water in bottles at a hugely inflated profit. ¬†Persuading people to buy filtered tap water in a bottle with a slick label is quite a coup for the drinks industry. ¬†
BPA is Here to Stay?
But it‚Äôs not just the ever-rising cost to both your pocket and to the environment. ¬†Bottled water is problematic in other ways as well.
“Certain chemicals found in plastic bottles can have effects on every system in our bodies. ¬†They can affect ovulation, and increase our risk of hormonally driven problems like PCOS, endometriosis and breast cancer, among other things.”
