It is always best to store water in glass containers, not plastic. Water is the universal solvent: it will dissolve some part of everything it contacts. When water is stored in plastic containers, it takes on some of the chemicals that the plastic is made from. Over 60 million plastic bottles go into U.S. landfills daily because of bottled water. The harm to our planet is devastating and totally unnecessary.
Water stored in glass containers tastes better, looks better and is better for you. If our water looks and tastes better, we will naturally drink more, resulting in a multitude of health benefits.
Glass is better for you and better for our planet!
San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Chicago, St Louis and many other cities have recently jumped on the “ban bottled water” bandwagon, making it illegal to spend city dollars on bottled water.
The realization that bottled water is seldom of higher quality than tap water has caused a major shift in public opinion. “It causes 60 million plastic bottles A DAY to be manufactured, transported and then disposed of in U.S. landfills. It’s killing our planet, and for no good reason…”

Consumers typically buy bottled water under the misconception that it is safer, purer or healthier than tap water. Bottled water companies have spent billions to manipulate consumers into believing that bottled water is safer or healthier than tap water. Now the public is talking back and asking some very tough questions:
Is bottled water really better quality than tap?
Do plastic water bottles leach harmful chemicals?
Is the cost and inconvenience of bottled water just a waste of time and money?
Do you know that bottled water is a leading source of plastic pollution in America?
Are you aware that most studies show bottled water quality to be the same or lower than that of tap water?
Dehydration is the number one cause of stress and premature aging in the human body. Dehydration has been connected with heartburn, headaches, angina pain, asthma, colitis, diabetes, peptic ulcer pain, high blood pressure, low back pain, blood cholesterol, and many other symptoms. Researchers found that not only was the lack of water a problem, but the lack of hexagonally structured water was even more detrimental to the body. Recent studies showed that water forms three distinct layers around healthy cells. In healthy tissues, hexagonal water is closely associated with cell membranes, forming the first layer. In diseased cells, unorganized water forms the initial layer around the cells.
Drinking alkaline ionized water is one of the easiest and best ways to overcome chronic dehydration and to protect your body from the symptoms of disease and premature aging. Alkaline ionized water moves into the cells bringing in nutrients and removing wastes in a much more efficient manner.
Water that begins as rain or snow is naturally energized by Nature as it tumbles and falls through natural vortexes of energy and magnetic fields on the earth and is exposed to the far infrared energy from the sun. During this process, Nature adds minerals and oxygen to the water. The result is a living water that is highly structured, energized, mineralized, and oxygenated.
Although water can form various structures, depending on how the hydrogen-bonded molecules connect together, recent research shows that biological organisms prefer hexagonal (six-sided) ring-structured water. This hexagonal water, with its six individual molecules of water, is more rapidly absorbed by our cells. Most tap water and some of the popular bottled waters are pentagonal (five-sided) which has larger water clusters. Research shows that these structures are too large for the body to absorb quickly. The body must restructure the water to make it useable (a time consuming and energy consuming process). But, the regular consumption of hexagonal water has these positive benefits:
