Drink Up!

First- I know that plastic water bottles are not the eco-friendliest option for hydrating one's self, but there are times when I am at the mercy of convenience. As such I felt that I should at least make myself aware of better options when selecting bottled water. That's how I came across Eternal Artesian Water.

The first thing I noticed was not the funky shape of the bottle (although it has caught many an eye for its "uniqueness"), but the fact that it is BPA-free. In case you missed it or were not previously aware, Bisphenol A is a chemical used to harden plastics but is known to be toxic to humans and is linked to certain cancers. Google it.

Okay enough of the scary stuff and back to the water. It's naturally alkaline and has "naturally occurring electrolytes" which is good for balancing the acidity we are commonly exposed to that can weaken our immune system.

The taste? In my opinion it's one of the better tasting waters out there. Water is pretty much all I drink anymore so I've been around the block in the sense that I've tried all kinds and no it doesn't all taste the same. I can drink this water cold or at room temperature and it still tastes great to me.

The only thing about this water is that it is a bit pricey compared to other brands so that may be a deterrent to some. For me it is totally worth it. But if price is a deal breaker for you, watch for sales. Whole Foods recently had the large-sized bottles on sale 2 for $3. Can you say stock up?

If you must drink bottled water, recycle your bottles!!
