Earth Day snuck up on me this year. I guess I’ve been a bit occupied, we all have been. Earth Day has always been an important day to me. Why? Well simply because we have the power to make it a better place. The Greatest Threat to Our Planet Is the Belief That Someone Else Will Save It…
What if we just all did our part? Simple things can make a difference. Right now there is a lot of negativity and uncertainty. So, let’s add some positivity and think about things that we can do. I’m not talking about going overboard. I’m talking about some easy Earth-friendly changes you can do everyday. By making adjustments in your daily life, we can collectively make a big impact on our environment! Here are some things you can take action on now and they won’t even disrupt your life in any way!
Let’s start with one of the essentials; drinking water. Drinking filtered tap water is about one-tenth the cost of supplying your family with bottled water for an entire year. Consider investing in a water filtration system, they easily pay for themselves over time and you get great-tasting water right from your kitchen tap-and they are better for the environment!
My pick: The PureH2O™ Water Filtration System features an exclusive dual-filter system installs in seconds and uses a combination of carbon filtration, ion exchange and sub-micron filtration to produce truly healthy, great-tasting water from your kitchen tap. Using the latest two-stage water filtration technology, the PureH2O Water Filtration System filters out a wider range of contaminants than other filters. The first cartridge filters out sediment, tiny microscopic particles, and chlorine taste and odor. The second cartridge features a complex ion exchange process that enhances the mineral balance of water while filtering out the lead. This supercharged water system also helps maintain healthy pH levels.
PureH2O filters out the chlorine taste and bad odors, greatly improving the quality and clarity of your tap water. PureH2O™, Because it’s your water!
Realizing that there are many things we can do to reduce our carbon footprint is the first step. More and more people are making small changes that impact on our planet. Think about your cleaning products-are you washing a lot of chemicals down the drain?
