It’s hilarious to look into the eyes of someone as they arrogantly proclaim that they would NEVER EVER consider drinking something as unhealthy as sodas or a sports drinks. They usually have an air of superiority as if they’ve figured out the secret to life while most of the world is stuck in the dark ages. Many of these know-it-all’s gave up gluten long ago and they can tell you more about juicing than the manufacturers of the juicers can. They refrain from anything with a hint of GMO and they can read (and understand) the labels on all containers.
These folks may run circles around me in some ways, but they never cease to amaze me as they preach about the dangers of our food supply while toting around commercially bottled water as if it’s one more step in their journey toward GREEN. The only thing good about commercially bottled water is the convenience of being able to drink it up and toss it away so that it becomes somebody else’s problem somewhere down-the-line. So much for being GREEN and socially responsible.
Most bottled water IS tap water and, in addition to being as oxidative (aging) as one of those sodas that they’d rather die than drink, it is housed in a container that is known to wreak havoc on our health AND our environment. So much for going GREEN!
Until we understand that what we drink is just as (even more) important as what we eat, we can’t possibly master the goal to go GREEN. In fact, as long as we’re eating healthy, organic, non GMO, preservative-free, gluten-free food only to wash it down with unhealthy water housed in toxic containers we haven’t accomplished anything CLOSE to what we set out to. So much for going GREEN.
There are socially responsible water options that are healthy for you AND healthy for the environment and that don’t cost (on the average) $12.00 a gallon, and water than can be defined as “GREEN” and “organic” in every sense of the word. Of course, you lose the convenience of being able to drink it up and toss it away for somebody else to deal with later on BUT; you AND the planet will be much better off because of it.
GO GREEN once and for all in every way that matters!
