Practical Tips for Clean Drinking Water

In this post, we explain why we are so concerned about water purity, how our concerns initially arose and what do we do to solve the problem.

We all know, at least on some deep unconscious level, that water from the tap is not really that safe to drink.

Are chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride, which are added to tap water, really safe? Is the water filtered well enough before it reaches our tap? Are the pipes completely free from corrosion?

We all seek ways to access clean, potable water that is free from both bacteria and chemicals. And it is because of such doubts that the bottled water industry is on the rise today.

Our Guide for Plastic-free Cooking Appliances

The food we eat is of utmost importance to anybody who wants to live healthily.

No doubt that choosing the right food is adamant but so is its quality. And the tools we use to prepare it can greatly influence if our high quality food is as healthy after we process it as when we first bought it.

In particular, the kitchen appliances we use to stir, boil, blend, chop or mix our food together should be made from non-toxic materials. That is so important because the food does not simply sit in these appliances but is heated and vigorously thrown up and down as we process it.

We simply need to be sure that it does not rub any unhealthy substances from the walls of our appliances.

In most cases, this means to choose those appliances that are made from natural, non-toxic materials and avoid plastic/synthetic materials as much as possible.

Packaging plays an undeniably important role to protect and preserve our food, to keep it fresh, clean and safe.

There are different kinds of packaging such as paper or plastic. But which material is predominantly used? We all agree here – plastic.

At the same time, the plastic packaging contains a number of chemicals that can be harmful to our health if they leach into the food we eat.

They are linked to disruptions of the endocrine system, play a role in unlocking allergies and asthma, among others. The chemicals are known to disturb the hormonal balance in our bodies and are especially toxic to young children.

4 Ways to Purify Your Tap Water

Clean water is a necessity for great health.

At the same time tap water is being polluted with all kinds of chemicals.

Some, such as chlorine, are added to sanitize the water and avoid outbreaks of infectious disease but also sanitize and damage our guts.

Other chemicals, such as those from industrial operations, find their way into the water supply and should be avoided.

People are aware of this problem and probably that is why bottled water sales are up.

However, bottled water is more difficult to obtain and is not necessarily pure.

Filtering water at home is way easier and is just as (or even more) healthier than buying bottled water.
