Making a difference in your life... and the lives of others


Dear Donna


On April 22nd 2009 over a billion people world wide will join together for Earth day. Officially founded April 22nd 1970 by American Senator Gaylord Nelson, this grassroots movement has encircled the globe to become the largest secular civic event in the world.  


The health of our planet is also directly tied to our own health, it is impossible to be healthy if we live on a dying, toxic planet.


There are numerous ways we can each help to protect our planet and protect our health. In this newsletter I've highlighted a few environmental and health issues, in addition to introducing Klean Kanteen - one small way you can make a BIG impact...

Plastics Are Forever


Do you buy water in plastic bottles?


Did you know it takes nearly 700 years before plastic begins to decompose?


In America alone - 38 BILLION water bottles go into landfills and only 23% of water bottles are ever recycled. This does not account for all other plastics, including the scourge of the earth "plastic bags", which end up in the landfills.


Many researchers and environmental organizations now list plastic as the number one threat to our marine environments around the planet. In addition, chemicals in some plastics have been linked by researchers to a laundry list of diseases, including breast cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, liver abnormalities, and prostate cancer.


When it doesn't end up in our landfills, most plastic eventually makes its way to our oceans, where each year millions of fish, birds, and other animals die from plastic because they eat it or they get caught in it.


The United Nations Environment Program estimates that more than 13,000 pieces of plastic litter are floating in every square kilometer of the ocean worldwide.


The Surfrider Foundation estimates that more than half of the litter on beaches is plastic.


In addition, 20 million barrels of oil are used each year to make plastic bottles, and industrial runoff from bottling facilities include petroleum-based substances are damaging to the environment, animal life and human health. This all adds up to making the beverage bottled water industry among the most environmentally destructive industries - saying nothing about what it does to our health.



What's In Your Water Bottle?


You may be surprised to learn that 24% of the bottled water on the market is tap water repackaged by Coke and Pepsi (Fast Company, December, 2007)

Aquafina, Pepsi's best selling water, is in fact tap water - yes that is correct tap water! And Dasani by Coke also comes from the public water system. 


Nestle, which produces several brands, including Poland Spring, Arrowhead, Deer Park, Ozarka and Calistoga also uses tap water in some brands.
In 1976, the average American drank 1.6 gallons of bottled water a year. In 2007, that number had increased to an average of 28.3 gallons per person. (Fast Company, December, 2007)


BPA... Protect Yourself



Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical, which is used primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. It is used in baby bottles, water bottles, medical and dental devices, lenses, food storage containers, household electronics, compact discs and DVDs.

Epoxy resins containing BPA are used to coat the inside of food and beverage cans, as well as metal water bottles not made from stainless steel.

BPA made headlines in December 2006 when a draft report from the National Toxicology Program's Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction (CERHR) was released as part of NTP-CERHR's initial review and evaluation of BPA for the "potential for adverse effects on reproduction or development resulting from human exposures to substances in the environment".

In the following months, evidence about the adverse health effects of BPA have continued to mount as scientists outside NTP-CERHR conducted new studies and reviewed hundreds of previous studies linking BPA exposure to a wide array of illness and disease, including breast cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, liver abnormalities, and prostate cancer.

Now U.S. legislators are trying to ban plastics containing BPA on both the state and national level.
