London’s bottled water waste is out of control

“London’s plastic water bottle waste is out of control”, reports the Guardian this week.

In their article highlighting London as having the worst recycling rates of anywhere in the UK, the Guardian reveals that Londoners drink more plastic bottled water than anyone else in England.

Plastic waste is out of control in London,” said Leonie Cooper, who chairs the London assembly environment committee. “It litters our parks, pollutes the Thames, harms marine life and adds waste to London’s landfill sites, which may be full by 2025.

“We have to turn the situation around. Firstly, Londoners need an alternative to buying bottles of water – this is a crucial part of the solution”.

The environment committee recommends that tap water should be made more readily available, but here at The Pure H2O Co., we – and no doubt you, our readers – are all too aware of the potential health risks associated with drinking tap water’s myriad of impurities including drug residues, heavy metals, asbestos, pesticides, chemicals and petroleum derivatives.

There is an environmentally friendly, sustainable, easy, affordable solution. It solves the plastic bottled water crisis. It frees you from the health compromises involved in drinking tap water. It’s RODI Pure H2O. That’s tap water purified of 99.99% of all naturally occurring and man-made impurities, using our patented Reverse Osmosis with De-Ionisation purification process.

The Green Parent: pure water for children

Have you discovered The Green Parent magazine? The April / May issue explores foraging, shares 50 ways to get fresh air with young children, plus there are regular features on child-led learning, family life and the best natural products for children.

We’re so glad to be on page 12 of the current issue, explaining why we believe that there are no acceptable levels of contaminants in the water your children drink.

In 2013, the Guardian reported that levels of a toxic pesticide, more than 100 times the EU limit were present in a source of English drinking water. The discovery of record levels of Metaldehyde – slug poison – was reported by Natural England and the Environment Agency. This problem is not going to go away, because water utilities have no methods for removal.

In fact, tap water contains a myriad of impurities including chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, hormones and medications. Bottled water is damaging to the environment and still contains impurities. Luckily, there is a solution to safe hydration – Pure H2O.

Our RODI (reverse osmosis with de-ionisation) tap water purifiers typically fit under your kitchen sink and designed specifically for treating UK tap water, they remove 99.99% of organic and inorganic impurities, ensuring a safe source of drinking water for your family.

It tastes pure, too so your children will more readily drink enough water.

As Renee Elliot, founder of Planet Organic says:

“Children absorb impurities at 10 x the rate of adults so it’s important they avoid toxins in food and water. I’ve been drinking Pure H2O for over 25 years and I wouldn’t give my children anything else; it’s the safest, most natural drinking water and has a great taste.”

Are you keen that your children avoid toxins and impurities? Do your children find tap water unpalatable? Pure H2O is the answer. Visit our website www.PureH2O.co.uk to find out more: or call us on 01483 617 000 we’d be happy to answer your questions and advise how we can help your family enjoy safe, pure water.

And visit The Green Parent online or pick up the latest edition, we’re sure that you’ll find it full of helpful and inspirational features.

Eve Kalinik: Understanding Hydration with Pure H2O Co. Ltd

Here’s guest blogger, Eve Kalinik, on the importance of adequate hydration with pure water

Hydration, or the lack thereof, is something that I’m consistently reinforcing with my clients, many of us wonder why we have afternoon slumps, food cravings, headaches and sluggish digestions but often this can be a simple fact of not taking in enough water. When you think as we are almost 60% water and pretty much every cellular process is conducted in a water environment its no wonder we need to make sure that our bodies are well hydrated. This also contributes to supporting digestive processes & juices as well as transporting oxygen and vital nutrients in the blood and around the body. And a hydrated body also burns fat more efficiently. Fact.

As a general guide we need to take in around 2 litres per day but this should be increased if you are exercising or traveling. Whilst pure water is the obvious and most bio available source, hydration isn’t just about straight up h20. It is also important to eat plenty of water rich food based sources too. Cucumber, green leafy veg and strawberries are up there at around 90% water but generally most vegetables will contain good levels. Try not to get so fixated on having a certain amount of fluid per day but also ensure to have hydrating foods as part of your daily intake. Juices & smoothies are a great way to max this but making sure you are hitting your 8 portions of veggies per day will have an impact on your hydration levels too. When drinking water the key thing is to make sure that your water comes from a clean source, trying to avoid plastic bottles where possible as these contain hormone mimicking substances and other chemicals that can leach into the water itself. Repeated and long term exposure to these are not beneficial for our health so try to buy your water in glass bottles where you can. Investing in a home filtration unit is well worth the money, rather than wasting it on filter jugs that don’t get rid of a lot of the contaminants and general nasties. In my opinion the best filtration system uses a reverse osmosis process, like the pureh2o.co.uk systems, that also takes out hormones, since most regular filters won’t do this.

Here’s some more of my better hydrating tips…

WAKE & HYDRATE – start the day as soon as you wake up with a glass of water. The body will be pretty thirsty first thing so try to get into a routine with this. Warm water and lemon juice can be a nice twist and also stimulates digestive processes.

MAKE IT INTERESTING – add things like slices of lemon, mandolin sliced cucumber, fresh mint or fresh lime & pinch cayenne can make all the difference and certainly make your water look and taste more inspiring. Avoid the flavoured waters as these often contain high levels of sugar.

SIP THROUGHOUT THE DAY – don’t get to the end of the day and realise that you haven’t had enough and chug back in one go. We can over hydrate ourselves too so little and often is the key mantra here.

WINE NOT WATER – when it comes to meal times that is! Avoid drinking a lot of water when you are eating as this can dilute gastric juice secretion and impair breaking down food. A small glass of wine can assist this though.

HAVE A GOAL – buy a beautiful jug and have it on your desk at work or in the kitchen. That way you’ll be more inclined to drink regularly. A plastic bottle with its label peeling off isn’t the most appealing things and clients often tell me they don’t have time to go to the water machine so having this to hand will make it a lot easier. Check out BKR bottles that are chic and make you want to drink more.

HERBAL TEAS COUNT – in all their variety are another great and delicious way of increasing your intake. Coffee has a dehydrating effect so just stick to one organic freshly ground cup in the morning after breakfast.

Hydrate for Party Season

Our best advice for looking and feeling good over Christmas is to drink more water, especially Pure H2O.

No matter what you put on your skin, hydrating from the inside out – preferably with plenty of pure water – is the best way to get your skin looking and feeling plump, soft and glowing, and to mitigate the harsh effects of heating systems and winter weather.

If you really suffer from persistently dry, irritated skin then consider a water softener. Our softeners remove the damaging deposits in hard tap water and deliver some great benefits; your skin is more comfortable, hair is softer and as a bonus, appliances and heating systems last longer and clothes come out of the wash softer, too.

Staying on top of your hydration levels is also vital for your brain. Whether you’re busy at work, rushing around doing the Christmas shopping or baking the mince pies at home, drink plenty of water. Even very mild dehydration negatively affects your ability to think clearly, brings down your mood and crashes your energy levels.

And as for enjoying festive celebrations, don’t forget to alternate every alcoholic drink with a glass of water – it really will help you pace yourself and avoid a hangover!
