Are You Proud Of Your Drinking Water?

Elua WaterIt sounds like a silly question but really, are you?

You’re probably proud of a number of important choices that you make, products that you buy, or charitable causes that you support.

Do you buy cookies from the Girl Guides? Do you choose organic or GMO foods? Do you own a Prius? Do you choose toilet paper with recycled content even though it costs a bit more?

These are but a few of the examples of products and brands that you might be proud of. But what about your drinking water? Are you proud of that?

Since the human body can survive for months without food but only 2-3 days without drinking water, we really are what we drink.

If your drinking water is tap water, you probably based your decision on sustainability, the environment and/or saving money. Excellent! And while I may argue and debate the merits of tap water from a health perspective (click here for more information), you have made a conscious decision and one that you are proud of, right?

When it comes to bottled water as drinking water, our choices range from domestic to import, no-name brand to big brand, flat or fizzy, plain or with vitamins, the list goes on and on. And while some bottled water companies donate to environmental causes or promote the heck out of their bottles that use less plastic or perhaps even corn based plastic, deep down we all know that as a product, bottled water is not something easy to be proud of.

Bottlers prefer lighter bottles because the price they pay is based on the total weight of the bottle in grams. If you look up the research on corn based plastics (like we did here), they are not any greener than traditional PET bottles. Bottled water companies are desperately trying to greenwash their products in an attempt to give you the consumer, something, anything, to make you feel better about your decision.

At Elua, we’re proud to offer a brand of drinking water that you can truly be proud of.

Choosing Elua for your drinking water reduces your exposure to long and short term contaminants, saves you money, supports like-minded charities like 1% for the Planet and charity: water and helps stem the tide of plastic bottles that is choking our oceans, landfills and ditches. While recycling helps contain the problem, it doesn't reduce the enormous environmental footprint of bottled water. In fact, recycling adds to it by consuming more fuel, hydrocarbons and electricity to collect, transport and unfortunately down cycle rather than up cycle it into other short term use products.

Our drinking water is something that we should all be proud of and stand behind confidently. We all want the best for our bodies, our children, our pocketbook and our environment. Life’s short; make decisions that make a difference.
