Tips to reduce the contamination and pollution in bottled water
If you choose to drink the bottled water, here are a few tips to minimize the risk of contamination and impact of pollution,
When you buy your bottled water, check the inside and the outside of the bottle for any irregularities. Look for broken seals, floating material inside, or anything else.
Check the manufacturing label, best-before date, chemical analysis, treatment method, and type of water.
Before choosing a brand of bottled water, research the company, the origin of the water and the treatments that they have used. The contaminants like arsenic, trihalomethanes excessive heterotrophic-plate-count (HPC) bacteria are elevated levels of nitrates.
Research recycling and pollution habits of bottled water companies.
Buy bottled water in glass bottles, instead of plastic bottles. Plastic bottles contain potentially harmful chemicals, and encourage bacterial growth faster than glass bottles do
Buy products with no-spill caps, meaning that water cannot spill and air cannot enter the bottled water when replacing the bottle in the cooler.
Refrigerate the bottle once it is opened, and if you can, refrigerate the bottle before opening as well. If you cannot refrigerate the bottled water, store it in a cool, dry, dark place.
Clean your water cooler regularly.
We organize several educational programs that can supplement the information regarding the benefits of our bottled water. Operation Water Drop looks at the chemical contaminants that are found in water. Operation Water Flow looks at how water is used and where it comes from.
