A Solution For Bottled Water A Solution For Bottled Water Presentation Transcript

  • Do you know all the facts of Bottled water... IF YOU DON’T THAN LET’S JUST SAY YOU ARE IN FOR A SHOCK!!!! You pollute the Earth.... You Risk your Health.... You spend and waste your Money..... All for bottled water???? Think about this.....................
  • BOTTLED WATER – DO WE NEED IT?
  • The Impact on Our Environment According to a 2001 report of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), roughly 1.5 million tons of plastic are expended in the bottling of 89 billion liters of water each year. Statistics Canada says nearly one-third of all Canadian households are choosing bottled water over tap water, and the data indicate those numbers are still on the rise; plus 40% to 80% of empty bottles end up as solid waste.
  • The Impact on Your Health A study published in September 2008, examined BPA exposure in humans. The study, which included 1,455 American adults, found that 90% of participants had detectable levels of BPA in their urine. Researchers said those with the highest levels of BPA concentrations in their urine had nearly three times the odds of cardiovascular disease, compared with participants with the lowest levels of BPA. The study also found people with high BPA levels had 2.4 times the odds of Type 2 diabetes in comparison with those with the lowest levels. Some forms of filtration and reverse osmosis systems can be problematic as well in that they strip water of minerals, essentially creating distilled (or dead) water, which can over periods of prolonged use have the effect of actually removing essential minerals from the body. Water is the most essential nutrient – humans, animals and plants can not live without it. Therefore, it is important to ensure the water you consume and use has a high level of vitality.

  • The Impact on Your Money.... According to the Polaris Institute - One billion bottles of water are consumed by Canadians every year. It takes three litres of water for the production of a single plastic bottle, which contains an average of one litre of water. One billion bottles at an average cost of $1.50 totals 15 BILLION DOLLARS
  • Five Reasons to Avoid Bottled Water 1. Bottled water leads to water shortages In Canada, we are not immune to the growing threats of water scarcity20% of municipalities have faced shortages in recent years. According to Maude Barlow, Canada is a net exporter of bottled water, selling its ancient glacier waters all over the world mostly for the profit of the foreign-owned, big four water companies. ―Most provinces charge these companies next to nothing to extract this water from springs and aquifers, and whole watersheds are now under threat from this practice,‖ she argues.
  • 2. Bottled water contributes to climate change In an era when the world is dealing with the impacts of climate change, the bottled water industry requires massive amounts of fossil fuels to manufacture. According to the Bow River Keeper, a citizens’ group aimed at protecting the Bow River watershed, a quarter of the 89 billion litres of bottled water consumed every year is consumed outside the country of its origin. Hence the transportation of bottled water also produces large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. The Bow River Keeper estimates that ―the manufacturing and transport of one kilogram bottle of Fiji water consumes 26.88 kilograms of water (7.1 gallons) 0.849 Kilograms of fossil fuel (one litre or 0.26 gal) and emits 562 grams of greenhouse gases (1.2 pounds).‖
  • 3. Our landfills cannot support bottled water Canadian municipalities are dealing with a waste management crisis and our landfills cannot support the amount of garbage generated by the bottled water industry. According to a recent Toronto Sun article, ―as few as 50 percent of the water bottles Torontonians consume everyday are actually being recycled. That means as many as 65 million empty plastic water bottles per year end up as garbage in a landfill waste site.‖ In some communities the percentage of bottled water ending up in landfills can be as high as 80 percent.
  • 4. Bottled water is not safer In order to persuade people to spend 200 – 3000 times what they spend on tap water, bottled water companies advertise their product as a safer and healthier alternative. Nothing can be further from the truth. Bottled water is regulated as a food product under the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. As such, according to the Polaris Institute, water bottling plants are inspected on average only once every three years. Regulation of tap water on the other hand, is far more stringent. In general, municipal tap water is tested continuously during and after treatment.
  • 5. Water is a human right The bottled water industry has worked hard to undermine our faith in public water. Canada has one of the best public drinking water systems in the world. The Council of Canadians has focused its efforts on fighting for a national water policy that would improve the public system and ensure clean drinking water standards for all communities across the country because we believe water is a human right and should be guaranteed to all people regardless of their ability to pay. We hope the wonderful efforts to ban bottled water in schools across the country will also be coupled with educating children to address the global water crisis by caring for and promoting water as a public resource and a human right.

  • PiMag Water Technology Features several levels of filtration to reduce contaminants the natural way, without adding chemicals. PiMag water tastes better than the commercially bottled variety — and costs a fraction of the price. PiMag water offers more. Decades ago, scientists discovered that the water in a remote area of Japan produced amazing results on the surrounding plants. They named it pi water. Nikken has succeeded in replicating the environment that created pi water in nature, and these discoveries are incorporated in PiMag products. You will taste and feel the difference!
