Living in Canada we are blessed with abundant fresh water, so you would think that when ever we turn on the tap to grab a glass that we would not have to worry. Sadly that is not always the case, and the water you are drinking could actually be hurting you.
When I was a teen we moved to a new house out in the country. It was a beautiful place surrounded by rivers, farms and forest. My Mom and Step-Dad absolutely love it there and it is the only home my sister who is several years younger then me remembers. In the years following our move my sister became ill several times, not all that surprising as kids do often get sick however this was different. After repeat trips to the doctors it was finally suggested that my parents get the water tested at their home, and sure enough the test came back to show there was E. coli in the water, a bacteria in that at times make you sick. From that point on they switched to bottled water, and the illness stopped. The well water we were drinking from tap was making my sister sick.
Recently while at the Green Living Show I was introduced to Strauss Water Canada a company focused on healthy hydration. The Strauss WaterBar is a “kitchen appliance” that allows you to have clean water at the push of a button. The active carbon and UV filters treat all major contaminants and impurities in the water while leaving the natural minerals behind. This means that the water coming out of the WaterBar is 99.9% free from bacteria.
With the Strauss WaterBar you are able to get COLD or HOT water right on your counter top. Get rid of the kettle and put one of these beauties on your counter to provide drinking water at the perfect temperature whenever you want it.
It is time to stop lugging around the cases of bottled water, or worse the huge heavy jug of water out of the fridge every time we need at drink. Strauss Water Canada makes it easy, they will come and install the unit in your home and ship replacement filters right to your door (and they only need to be replaced twice a year).
Cheers to enjoying a glass of clean water! How much would you love to be able to get a glass of cold refreshing water or hot cup of tea with a push of a button?
