Organic Water??

First of all, let me apologize for not being more timely with my posts! I didn’t realize it had been so long since I’d posted a blog. I have had tons of ideas rolling through my head, but I’m sad to say they didn’t make it much farther than my brain 🙂

Anyhow, this post is about water. That one little five letter word means life for every living organism. In my quest to eat healthier, I know and understand that water consumption is essential. I love drinking water. I can drink it ice cold, and I can drink it at room temperature. It doesn’t matter to me. However, when I get out of routine, my water consumption is one of the first routines I drop. My plan is to set goals for myself each month of what I want to change in my daily habits to get closer to being as healthy as possible.

I decided that adequate daily water consumption is my goal for August 2010. Every day, I WILL drink a minimum of 64 oz. of water.

So, I go through my mental checklist of things I’ve read and heard about water:
1) Don’t buy water in plastic bottles…check
2) Don’t drink tap water…check
3) Use a re-usable BPA-free water bottle…check
4) Use a water filter…check…wait…is the water I’m drinking from the water filter really clean? Is this water ‘organic’?? Is there a such thing as organic water???

That question made me wonder if there is a such thing as organic water? After reading a number of articles, and even watching a movie on Netflix called “Blue Gold: World Water Wars”, I’m not even sure if I was able to get my question answered. Everyone seems to have a different opinion about different types of water: filtered, bottled, tap, spring, purified, mineral, distilled…the list goes on. One site says drink x, and other site says never drink x, drink y.

After much research on the topic, I haven’t found the good news yet. 🙁 We are using more water than the earth’s water cycle can make – and the water that it is making is becoming more and more contaminated because of pollution and overpopulation of the earth. Even if you drank ‘clean’ water, you would also need to install an in-home filter so that you wash and bathe in ‘clean’ water. So, what’s a person to do? Is nothing safe? Will I have to live in a bubble? Stay tuned for these and more questions as I go in search of answers! I am going to keep researching, but in the meantime, I’ll keep drinking water from my Brita pitcher and from other filtered water sources – it’s better than nothing….I think!?

Tell me your opinions about water. Where do you get your water? What type of water do you drink? What do you drink your water out of? Do you know if there is a such thing as organic water? DO YOU DRINK WATER?? If not, will you join me on my monthly challenge? I’ll post my results each day on my “This is Living Organic” facebook page.
