City Water

Today I’m showing off my early birthday present from my family, oh I just love them and this filtration system. Laugh all you want, but this was the only item on my list this year.

Our bodies are made up of somewhere between 60-70% water, if I’m drinking tap water which the city uses chlorine and aluminum to purify that means a percentage of my body water also includes chlorine and aluminum. And while I appreciate the effort Toronto goes to to ensure our water is safe, I feel it’s up to me to take it to the next level and filter out everything missed as well as anything added.

I know, I KNOW you’d rather not know and go about your business, I get it. Though…it’s not that big of a deal to have safe drinking water in your home and this is why I chose the Berkey system. It’s made in Canada by Canadians, it’s way less expensive longterm than other options, it looks great and filters the heck out of your water. You can use it at home or even take it up to the cottage to filter lake water. Plus the elements last for years! It’s a no brainer.

Happy birthday Lisa!

Don’t be fooled by bottled water anymore, large companies pay millions of dollars in marketing to have us believe that their water comes from untouched streams, glaciers and mountains. The reality is that most bottled water products all originate from tap water.
