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.

How to Choose Non-Toxic Kitchen Utensils and Accessories

The fact that the quality of our food affects directly our health and well-being is unquestionable.

Certainly, the most important part of eating good food is to buy quality ingredients. At the same time, the tools we use to prepare our food can have a huge impact on how healthy it is.

6 Health Considerations to Bear in Mind about Food in Plastic Packaging

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.

If you look around in every shop, all you see are plastic wrappings. Be it fruits and vegetables, meat, cheese, bread, water… Even hot coffee, tea and other drinks for on the go are served oftentimes in plastic cups.

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.

Why You Should Consider the Packaging of these 4 Common Types of Food

Plastic packaging is a necessity when it comes to preserving and protecting our food during its long journey from the manufacturer to our plates.

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.
