Cost Effective Eco-Friendly Water
Making your own eco-friendly water is easier than you think. A lot of people believe they have to spend a lot of money for a particular filtration system to provide them with eco-friendly water, but that isn't so. In this article you will learn how to make your own for a fraction of the cost.
How to make your own eco-friendly water system at home:
Have you always wanted to go green and do more for the environment? My bet is you have since you are here reading this article. You probably wondered about ways to implement green energy sources at home and beside the obvious options to install solar panels and using wind power to generate your electricity there is another way, namely making your own eco-friendly water.
It makes sense, since we do happen to live in a very thirsty country. Australia is hot and during summer many of us need to drink between 2-4 litres of water to stay hydrated. Buying water is simply too expensive, plus you don't know how much poison floats around in those mass produced bottle retailers anyway. Many labels claim to be sourced from natural springs, but one cannot help but wonder how true these statements really are.
Effectiveness / Result
Introducing the eco-friendly gravity water filter system. This system can remove:
- heavy metals such as copper,
- lead and
- fluoride from tap water
Made up of a stainless steel cylinder shaped container, the filter is candle-shaped, similar to a phallus (yeah I know, but it is true). The filter sits within the top part of the container and is responsible for filtering out the bad and nasty stuff from tap water, giving you eco-friendly water within about 20 minutes when you first start out.
Over time and with considerate use the filter will become clogged with chalk and toxic residue from the tap water in which case you simply exchange it for a new one.

Health benefits of drinking eco-friendly water:
It is obvious that by removing dangerous particles and heavy metals from our drinking water it can benefit us health-wise. The problem we face when drinking water straight from the tap is that of being slowly poisoned to sickness thanks to the levels of lead and other chemical compounds within.
While our councils do need to follow approved levels of safety the residue can build up in our body over time, especially that of heavy metals and there is no doubt that it can have negative health effects on us. If you follow the link below to an article about high levels of the herbicide atrazine in drinking water in the US you'll soon look differently at your drinking water source. Drinking eco-friendly water from a system like the gravity water filter system removes this danger.
Another health problem are our water bottles. Many are made using plastic and we all know that plastic leeches dangerous chemicals. A lot of people also consistently reuse their water bottles for the gym which is not a good idea because of the increased bacteria levels.
Go green is easy with your own home made eco-friendly water system:
Whether you end up using the system mentioned in this article or choose something else, you should seriously consider making your own green drinking water at home. Forget bottles, forget tap water, heck, even forget rain water because rain is ultimately sucked up from our poisoned planet anyway.
Filtering water to make it an eco-friendly water is by far the best environmentally safe option to use, plus your body will thank you for it in the long term.
