Why Filtered Water is better for you?

Water is life and the most essential resource for our survival. However, water quality varies from place to place, and people do not always get the desired quality for their lifestyle. The water in the UK is of high quality. It is governed by strict regulations to deliver people with safe drinking water. But the taste can be different from one place to another across the UK. This is because the water when travelling through the pipes or domestic water system, can pick up unwanted elements like heavy metals, bacteria, or chemicals used to treat water. These elements tend to affect the taste and quality of tap water we consume at home.

Therefore, a lot of people prefer to drink bottled water to find a water that satisfies their taste buds and their mineral preferences. However, they do not always realise the impact of buying and using single-use plastic bottles, resulting in tonnes of plastic waste and CO2 emissions that can harm the environment. According to a survey conducted in London, the average adult buys more than 3 plastic bottles every week, resulting in 175 bottles per person per year. Every year around 7.7 billion plastic bottles are purchased in the UK, resulting in a significant contribution to the huge amounts of single-use plastic waste.

Filtering your tap water is an excellent alternative to water from single-use plastic bottles – it can be just as delicious, vital, local, and environmentally friendly. It is a perfect way to create your own Bottle Free Zone at home that not only suits your lifestyle but is also good for the planet.
