Good New Year Hydrations Wednesday 27 December 2017 PDF Print single-use water bottles are an environmental ticking time bomb. That’s why we offer a variety of convenient water filters to suit every budget. Water is the one constant in the history of civilisation. Our planet, Earth, is 70% water. Humans comprise of around 60% water. Water lubricates everything. Without it, well, you wouldn’t be reading this. The importance of water’s life-giving properties is thrown into sharp focus at the turn of each New Year. The annual festive indulgence is followed by a desire to get healthy come January 1. Alongside taking up a new exercise, drinking more water is a common New Year’s resolution. The recent advent of campaigns such as Dry January has only heightened the public’s awareness of water’s health benefits. With that scenario in mind it’s little wonder that water - or to be specific, bottled water - is such a lucrative business these days. Sales of bottled water are an incredible 100 times higher today than in 1980, currently estimated to be worth sales of £2.5billion per year. However, in our rush to embrace bottled water’s elixir of life, we have set in motion a potentially cataclysmic environmental trend. According to research by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, between 5 million and 13 million tonnes of plastic leaks into the world’s oceans each year. Once there, it’s ingested by sea birds, fish and other organisms. Even more damning, it’s estimated that by 2050 the ocean will contain more plastic by weight than fish. Plastic’s devastating effects are well documented. It takes centuries to break down. And yet, rather than decrease production, it’s predicted that over the next 30 years, the annual manufacture of plastic is predicted to soar to 1.8 billion tonnes - the same weight as almost 250,000 Eiffel Towers. Why not just drink tap water then? The UK’s water supply is among the safest in the world. But that doesn’t mean we can’t improve the quality of the water we drink. Scare stories about the presence of harmful chemicals in our tap water are thankfully few and far between. However, in our kneejerk, online world any such story can place doubt in a person’s mind. So, what should the health conscious and environmentally-friendly consumer do? One of the UK’s foremost high street retailers Robert Dyas has a range of solutions to both increase our consumption of water and avoid any environmental damage. “Drinking adequate amounts of water is vital to our health,” says Robert Dyas COO Rachel Brain, “However, not everyone likes the taste of tap water and single-use water bottles are an environmental ticking time bomb. That’s why we offer a variety of convenient water filters to suit every budget.” Water impurities and chemicals in water (namely chlorine and fluoride), make a water filter the ideal solution.
