Ever since my partner bought a filter that removes fluoride and other heavy chemicals, I feel spoiled!
We tested the difference between our previous water quality through the Brita filter, and this new water quality through the Home Master filter - and the difference was undeniable!
With the Brita filter, we could smell the heavy chemicals which also gave a weird taste.. But with the Home Master filter, we couldn’t smell ANYTHING and it tasted so much cleaner! It really got us thinking.. Do you ever slow down from the pace of every day life and question the world around us? Taking a break from our personal lives to look at the bigger picture? It’s mind-blowing what we can learn when we take the time to do so.
There are so many social habits that have become “the norm” because we tend to simply go with the flow of it’s convenience. The reality is however, that many of these habits are destructive to our health - personally and globally.
My partner and I have been questioning the quality of our tap water and the significance it could be having on our health so we decided that enough was enough, and it was time to invest in our health and wellbeing.
The Home Master is no Berkey system, but nonetheless, it’s been efficient in removing the toxic chemicals so that we can feel better about what we drink all throughout the day.
This is important for EVERYONE. Not only people who drink tap water, because even if you buy and drink bottled water, you could actually be doing even more harm than good.
“No one should think that bottled water is better regulated, better protected or safer than tap,” says Eric Goldstein, co-director of the urban program at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a nonprofit organization devoted to protecting health and the environment.
That’s right, because plastic water bottles are somehow considered by the government as “a food” which keeps them under regulation of the FDA which really has no guidelines to accurately regulating water (considering it is obviously a beverage and not a food). This means that the bottled water that advertises itself as being “natural”, “spring”, etc. is very often a marketing scam.
The source is not required to be listed on the bottle, which keeps many people in the dark. Statistics say that more than 25 percent of bottled water comes from a municipal supply. The water is treated, purified and sold to us, often at a thousandfold increase in price. So you can imagine how many of us are surprised to learn that by drinking bottled water, we are actually just drinking glorified tap water.
Even if you are buying bottled water of good quality, theres also the aspect of it coming in a plastic bottle, lined with PVC, going through extreme temperature changes as it makes its way to your local stores. Overall, unhealthy and nearly diminishing of water’s healing properties. Plus, why should we support companies that are destructing our planet with plastic production by paying them 1,000 times more than what the water is really worth?!
Would you go into a store and pay 1,000% more than the price you see on the label for an item? Doubtful.
So why do it for water?
This is a great motivator towards investing in your own water filter so that you may fill up reusable bottles - for a fraction of the price.
Plus, once you have the filter, you can use it not only for your water, but for your pets drinking water as well, and for washing your fruits and veggies! :)
Especially if you are someone who like me, buys as much organic produce as I can, this really started to dawn on me. If I do my best to avoid chemicals in the production of my produce, why should I be okay with adding it to them as I am trying to clean them?
The irony.. Ha!
With the Home Master filter, my partner and I feel better about the consumption of water in ALL areas of our lives; deeming this filter one of the best investments we have made :)
PS: Big Bonus is that it is easy to install and can be placed right on your countertop for convenience.
On Amazon you can find it for about $90, which is truly a small price to pay for all of the long term benefits you will receive ;)
Cheers to cleaner water and saving money!
