The Advantage of Water Coolers Over Bottled Water

The Advantage of Water Coolers Over Bottled Water

Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink! That probably sums up the need for pure, clean and a ‘continuous’ source of water. Over the years, the business of providing safe and clean water has improved a lot and is now much more sophisticated. Gone are the days, when you had to worry about delivery service of your standard bottled water. You could now get it through plumbed in water coolers. There are a number of service providers who help you to install a hassle free plumbing system, so that you drink clean and pure water straight from the tap.

Water coolers come in different shapes and sizes. Right from you simple wall mounted water cooler, to the sophisticated plumbed in water coolers that dispense hot or cold water instantly. When it comes to quality, bottled waters cannot match the water coolers. These manage to efficiently, remove the contaminants in water. They taste great as well. Most water cooler manufacturers use the latest technology to ensure that water is cleaned of not only impurities but also remove the taste and odor of chemicals that are generally found in tap water. Not only hygienic, water coolers are safe from the environmental aspect as well. Haven’t we all heard about the ill effects of plastic? Imagine drinking water from a plastic container all through the day! And what about the delivery service of these bottled water suppliers! Well, the less said the better. These are at most time unreliable.

Bottled water is also expensive when compared to the cost of installing water coolers. Installing a water cooler, or a plumbed in water cooler is a onetime cost in comparison to the recurring cost of bottled water.

Installing a water cooler in your office is probably the best thing you could do to boost productivity as water is believed to increase concentration. No wonder providing access to clean and uninterrupted supply of water is a legal obligation imposed by the law on offices. If you are looking to install a water cooler in your office, you could choose from a wide range of office water coolers. These are also space savers unlike the bottled water which is a huge space consumer. With a water cooler you don’t have to worry about a place to store those huge space consuming water bottles. Also, you could avoid mishaps that usually occur when refilling or carrying bottled water. Some companies even allow you to personalize your water cooler, by fixing your company logo on them.

Beware of Bottled Water

Beware of Bottled Water

Water, water everywhere and we are duped into buying it bottled.
Consumers spend a collective 0 billion every year on bottled water in the belief–often mistaken, as it happens–that this is better for us than what flows from our taps, according to environmental think tank the Earth Policy Institute (EPI).
For a fraction of that sum, everyone on the planet could have safe drinking water and proper sanitation, the Washington, D.C.-based organization said this week.
Members of the United Nations have agreed to halve the proportion of people who lack reliable and lasting access to safe drinking water by the year 2015. To meet this goal, they would have to double the billion spent every year on water supply and sanitation.

 

”While this amount may seem large, it pales in comparison to the estimated 0 billion spent each year on bottled water,” said EPI researcher Emily Arnold.

”There is no question that clean, affordable drinking water is essential to the health of our global community,” Arnold said. ”But bottled water is not the answer in the developed world, nor does it solve problems for the 1.1 billion people who lack a secure water supply. Improving and expanding existing water treatment and sanitation systems is more likely to provide safe and sustainable sources of water over the long term.”

Worldwide, bottled water consumption surged to 154 billion liters (41 billion gallons) in 2004, up 57 percent from 98 billion liters in 1999, EPI said in a written analysis citing industry data.

By one view, the consequences for the planet and for consumers’ purses are horrifying.

”Even in areas where tap water is safe to drink, demand for bottled water is increasing–producing unnecessary garbage and consuming vast quantities of energy,” said Arnold. ”Although in the industrial world bottled water is often no healthier than tap water, it can cost up to 10,000 times more.”

At up to .50 per liter ( per gallon), bottled water costs more than gasoline in the United States.

A close look at the multibillion-dollar bottled water industry renewed Arnold’s affection for the faucet.

Tap water comes to us through an energy-efficient infrastructure whereas bottled water must be transported long distances–and nearly one-fourth of it across national borders–by boat, train, airplane, and truck. This ”involves burning massive quantities of fossil fuels,” Arnold said.

By way of example, in 2004 alone, a Helsinki company shipped 1.4 million bottles of Finnish tap water 4,300 kilometers (2,700 miles) to Saudi Arabia. And although 94 percent of the bottled water sold in the United States is produced domestically, some Americans import water shipped some 9,000 kilometers from Fiji and other faraway places to satisfy demand for what Arnold termed ”chic and exotic bottled water.”

More fossil fuels are used in packaging the water. Most water bottles are made with polyethylene terephthalate, a plastic derived from crude oil. ”Making bottles to meet Americans’ demand for bottled water requires more than 1.5 million barrels of oil annually, enough to fuel some 100,000 U.S. cars for a year,” Arnold said.

Worldwide, some 2.7 million tons of plastic are used to bottle water each year.

Once it has been emptied, the bottle must be dumped. According to the Container Recycling Institute, 86 percent of plastic water bottles used in the United States become garbage or litter. Incinerating used bottles produces toxic byproducts such as chlorine gas and ash containing heavy metals tied to a host of human and animal health problems. Buried water bottles can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade.

Of the bottles deposited for recycling in 2004, the United States exported roughly 40 percent to destinations as far away as China–meaning that even more fossil fuels were burned in the process.

I believe you will agree this situation is not very satifactory, in fact it is a real disaster. It is time these big companies looked after the world instead of doing their best to destroy it

There is an alternative you know.

Let me tell you a little bit about it. I don’t know if you are aware that we all have acidic bodies. By that I mean we are each have a pH level lower than what is required to be fit and well.

Those people with a lower level, are prone to sicknesses. Like weight problems, osteoporosis, diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, arthritis, and acid reflux and many other maladies.


Cancer finds it is hard to establish itself in an alkaline body, however an acidic body is a breeding ground for many illnesses.

My name is Ralph Morton, I was very overweight, listless, tired and very miserable. I tried to lose weight to feel better but when I managed I put it back on again.

With this in mind I ask you to read my take on Toxins.
