Yes, you do have the right to clean water!
Did you know August 19th is known for being the World Humanitarian Day? This day especially, let’s not only pay tribute to aid workers who risk their lives every day in humanitarian services, but also to support those around the world that are going through crises, like having a lack of clean water.
If you weren’t aware, back in 2010 the United Nations General Assembly recognized the human right to water and also acknowledged that clean drinking water is essential for all humans, not only to keep our bodies hydrated but also to cook or simply stay clean. However, many countries around the world do not get to enjoy this right because their water is dirty!
Imagine being thirsty and not having the chance to enjoy a glass of fresh water, instead you have to settle for a glass of dirty, contaminated water. This happens in different countries around the globe and it takes the lives of many humans on a daily basis! According to statistics, about 1.8 million people die every year due to diseases that are caused by consuming dirty water such as diarrhea or cholera. What is sad about this fact is that those deaths could be easily prevented by raising awareness of this issue and helping communities where there is a lack of clean water.
If you live in a country where water comes with tons of harmful chemicals through the tap or there is an overall lack of clean water you can purchase filters to make sure your water is safe to cook, drink or take a shower. Here at Aquasana, we offer different types of filters you can install at home to enjoy the benefits of clean water. Here are some:
It’s important to take care of your skin and hair! The best way to do this is by ensuring the water from your shower comes free of harsh chemicals such as chlorine. Our Premium Shower Filter is pretty easy to use! You have to simply attach it to your shower hose and replace the filter every 6 six months. This filter enhances your pH balance, prevents soap build-up and provides you with the highest quality water for a fresh shower experience.
There are two different types of drinking filters you can have at home to have access to clean water at all times. The first one is called a countertop filter, and as its name indicates, this filter goes over the counter of your kitchen. It’s perfect for those who tend to move a lot because it doesn’t require installation, you just simply attach it to your faucet and flush the cartridges for over 10 minutes to enjoy 6 months of great tasting water! The second one is called an under-the-counter filter and it’s great for those who don’t like to have the filter visible. The main difference is that this one requires installation but lasts for a longer time.
If you spend a lot of time outdoors, a reusable water bottle may be great for you! Instead of wasting money on bottled water you can simply take your reusable bottle with you and refill it with any tap water nearby. Every bottle comes with a filter inside that ensures the water is cleaned, so you no longer have to worry about running out of clean water when being out of home!
Water dispenser machines are a great option for those who have problems with water pressure or simply don’t want to install a filter at home. Aquasana’s 3.8 liters water dispenser can ensure you clean, good-tasting water for up to 3 months. The best part? It’s easy to use for the whole family, including the little ones!
No matter what option you choose, always remember that drinking water daily is extremely important for your organism. Don’t jeopardize your health by drinking water from sources that are not trusted, especially during these uncertain times when maintaining good health and sanitation is more important than ever!
