Is your drinking water as safe as it could be?
Your water may look clean. But the truth is chemicals - such as pesticides, heavy metals, and industrial pollutants - can actually turn up in the tap water your family drinks. Lead is no exception. Lead from your pipes can leach into your water and cause serious health challenges over time, especially for young children.
What's In your Water?
Disinfection By-products: Long-term exposure may cause increased risk of cancer, as well as liver, kidney or nervous system problems.
Heavy Metals: Even at low levels, long-term exposure may cause behavioral problems and learning disabilities.
Agricultural Pollutants: Long-term exposure may cause increased risk of cancer, as well as liver, kidney, spleen blood, and nervous system problems.
Industrial Pollutants: Long-term exposure may cause increased risk of cancer, as well as blood, nervous system, kidney and liver problems.
Did You Know ?
✔ According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, public water utilities have violated the Safe Drinking Water Act more than 700,000 times in the past seven years.**
✔ Unlike public water utilities, the bottled water industry is not required to publicly disclose the results of any contaminant testing it conducts.
✔ Bottled water may not be contaminant free. The EWG found a total of 38 contaminants in the water of 10 popular brands.***
✔ In 2007, 8.8 billion gallons of bottled water were consumed in the US.****
✔ In 2007, 1.64 million tons of bottled water packaging materials were produced in the U.S.; only 34% of those materials were recycled.****
✔ According to the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ resolution, it takes 1.5 million barrels of oil every year to facilitate the production of water bottles made for use in the U.S. That’s enough oil to power 50,000 cars for a year.
And, let's face it; bottled water is expensive and not good for the environment. The good news is that cleaner, healthier water is just a pitcher away.
