Why Choose a Stainless Steel Water Bottles?

Why are stainless steel water bottles so popular? What makes them good for our environment as well as our economy? Are stainless steel water bottles better than aluminum water bottles? These are good questions and ones we are asked every day. Let’s address them one by one. 1. Why are stainless steel water bottles so popular? Over the last 2 years stainless steel water bottles market have become fairly popular. There are not many places one can go where a variety of these colorful bottles are not for sale. At first glance every stainless steel water bottles are similar in appearance. However, in many cases there are a few not-so-obvious differences that are important to consumers who are looking for a safe alternative to bottled water. For one, what is the grade of stainless steel used in the construction of the bottle? It is important for consumers to always use high-grade, 18/8, 304 stainless steel water bottles. What do all of these numbers mean? The 304 refers to the grade of stainless steel – 304 is FDA approved, food-grade stainless steel and very important when using as a drinking or food container. Many inexpensive stainless steel water bottles flooding the shelves today are 201 grade stainless steel. Additionally, many of these stainless steel water bottles lack the density required to make them durable. Many are easy to crush with a squeeze from one’s own hands thus making them more likely to damage or even crack if dropped. The 18/8 refers to the Chromium to Nickel content. Without getting overly technical, in short, this means your stainless steel water bottle is safe to hold more beverage options such as juices, smoothies, sports drinks etc. Although these bottles are safe for carbonated drinks it is not recommend due to pressure build up. We also do not recommend hot beverages due to the fact that a stainless steel water bottle can become both very cold and very hot. As with any beverage container proper cleaning of your bottle and cap is always important. 2. Why are stainless steel water bottles good for our environment? From beginning to completion, bottled water consumes between 1100 and 2000 times more energy than tap water. In 2007, over 200 billion liters of bottled water were sold worldwide. That amount has grown 70% since 2001, and bottled water has now surpassed milk and beer in sales. Bottled water is the world’s second most popular bottled beverage, second only to the vast number of colas available on the market today. Everyday single day close to 80 million bottled waters are sold in the U.S. alone. Unfortunately, 9 out of 10 of these bottles are used one time and thrown into the trash. Forty billion empty bottles end up in U.S. landfills every year and these petroleum-based plastic bottles are leaching toxins into our earth’s soil and into our fresh waterways. Most people do not consider the massive amount of plastic required to quench the human demand for bottled water. The plastic used to bottle water is a petroleum-based (oil-based) plastic called Polyethylene Terephthalate, easily identified by the recycling code (PET#1). This plastic is designed and safe to be used only once – bottled water bottles are not safe to be reused. If reused, bacteria will begin to build up inside of the bottle and the plastic will begin to deteriorate causing toxins to leach from the bottle into the consumer’s water. Stainless Steel Water Bottles do not leach. Every day 100’s of millions of petroleum-based bottles are produced and transported around the planet in order to provide consumers with a single water drinking experience. Energy required for the transportation of bottled water from point of origin to supermarket shelves around the globe alone is difficult to determine. While some bottles of water travel short distances, others are imported from country's that require a greater distance for the water to travel, which increases it’s energy footprint. However, U.S. bottled-water consumption in 2007 required an energy input equivalent to 32 million to 54 million barrels of oil without even taking transportation in consideration. The global demand for bottled water is three times that amount. To put that energy uses into perspective just imagine each bottle one-quarter full of oil. To also put that amount into perspective, that is more than enough fuel to power every vehicle in Los Angeles for an entire year. Stainless steel water bottles are safe for reuse, safe for a variety of beverages and will help eliminate the demand, production, and transportation of plastic products. 3. How can using stainless steel water bottles be good for our economy as well as our personal economics? Bottled water cost more than gasoline! Almost 50% of all bottled water is nothing more than regular tap water. This bottled water is gathered from the same water source our tap water is gathered and is run through a filtration system similar to those available in most homes across America. The average American family spends anywhere from $300 to $3000 every year on bottled water…water that for all practical purposes is free to them in their homes. Rather than buying bottled water, using stainless steel water bottles – will save your family a great deal of money every year. 4. What is better Stainless Steel Water Bottles or Aluminum Water Bottle? Great question – Here are a few important differences: • Most importantly – Safety! Stainless steel is a neutral metal and does not leach – that is why silverware and cookware is made of stainless steel. Aluminum requires an inner lining to prevent the metal from leaching. • Studies indicated that the plastic inner lining in Aluminum bottles contains Bisphenol A (BPA) a known precursor to several types of cancer – including breast cancer, reduced testosterone levels in men and attention deficit disorders in children. • Cost -Stainless steel water bottles are less expensive than aluminum. • Weight and durability – aluminum is lighter, but stainless steel is more durable. • High-grade 18/8, 304 stainless steel water bottles are safe for acidic beverages – to our knowledge Aluminum is not. • If you are drinking ionized water – aluminum will maintain your waters ionization where stainless steel water bottles will not.

Project Earth H2o and Team Pinkie Promise are Making Strides together for Breast Cancer Awareness

October 2009

October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month.! A month dedicated to driving awareness, remembering and honoring our loved ones, while working tirelessly to raise the funds to continue the scientific research needed to prevent and cure this deadly disease forever. If you have never been to a breast cancer event or walk you are really missing out. It truly is amazing to see how many individuals and families are getting involved. It is such a worthy cause and so many are compelled by many different reasons to get involved. When we decided to launch our Get Pink™ Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign by donating $2.00 of every bottle sold to breast cancer research we were compelled by many reasons. However, the simple underlying truth is that Project Earth H2o is a company of action – our customers are people of action - and neither of us are comfortable sitting on the sidelines.

Stephanie Belvin Hopson is one of those "people of action." Stephanie is the team leader for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides against Breast Cancer Awareness – “Team Pinkie Promise” out of Virginia. We were first introduced to Stephanie’s passion for finding a cure on FaceBook where we found her posting articles, facts, and statistics in effort to drive awareness while at the same time working hard to motivate others to get involved. It was obvious that her passion was genuine and she was clearly reaching others with her message. We decided to reach out and ask Stephanie why this cause is so important to her, “It’s really hard for me to nail down one specific reason,” says Stephanie, “but I have just been deeply moved by so many stories of women, mothers, sisters, and daughters who are fighting breast cancer and who have lost loved ones of all ages. They have inspired me to take this action, and fortunately, I am just one of many.”

We were amazed that with her level of dedication Stephanie had herself not lost a family member to breast cancer and we decided to help sponsor “Team Pinkies Promise’s” October walk. “What I love about PEH2o, says Stephanie, is that they are much more than just a company…they are so passionate and dedicated to improving environmental, health, and social issues that it’s more like a great club – I feel that my voice carries more weight.” This is something that PEH2o Founder, Brian Denton can relate to, “Project Earth H2o was founded on the principals of creating a collective of savvy and proactive people who want to make a positive difference.

Please join us in congratulating Stephanie on her passion, dedication, and relentless efforts to find a cure…not for herself, but for others.

Together we are making a difference!

One very big reason to stop using plastic, it also happens to be twice the size of the continental United States.

"Disturbing and alarming," writes Dr. William Babibineaux in response to Project Earth H2o's recent article.

Initially, we posted this article on our Face Book Page and Twitter Page However, due to an overwhelming response from outraged and some disbelieving readers, we are compelled to once again draw attention to what is by far one of the single-most, highly unknown environmental atrocities on our planet.

If you were to take a boat trip just 500 nautical miles off the beautiful shores of California you will eventually stumble upon what can only be described as a Garbage Soup floating and swirling in the currents of the Pacific Ocean. Scientists have said that this soup is twice the size of the continental United States and is growing at an alarming rate. In fact, it is expected to double in size within the next 10 years if consumers don't do something to curb their plastic use. This floating garbage soup stretches across the Northern Pacific, past Hawaii and almost as far as Japan. Scientists estimate that over 90% of this floating soup is plastic.

According to the UN Environment Program, plastic debris causes the deaths of more than a million seabirds every year, as well as more than 100,000 marine mammals. Syringes, cigarette lighters and toothbrushes have been found inside the stomachs of dead seabirds, which mistake them for food.

A study of 560 seabirds from eight countries revealed they had ingested an average of 44 plastic items. The stomach of one seabird that died in Belgium contained 1,603 separate scraps of plastic. However, Birds are not the only ones to suffer. Turtles, whales, seals and sea lions have all eaten plastic. But the most sinister problem may be a hidden one at the other end of the food chain.

Plastic is believed to constitute 90% of all garbage floating in the oceans. The UN Environment Program estimated in 2006 that every square mile of ocean contains 46,000pieces of floating plastic.

Dr Eriksen, of the UN Environment Program, said the slowly rotating mass of garbage-laden water poses a risk to human health, too. Hundreds of millions of tiny plastic pellets, or nurdles; the raw materials for the plastic industry; are lost or spilled every year, working their way into the sea. These pollutants act as chemical sponges attracting man-made chemicals such as hydrocarbons and the pesticide DDT. They then enter the food chain. "What goes into the ocean goes into these animals and onto your dinner plate. It's that simple."

The only way to deal with the growing threat plastic poses to wildlife and the environment is to curb our consumption and to no longer treat plastic as an innocuous disposable commodity. Indeed, there is now a case for it to be treated as a potentially toxic waste product with the stiffest sanctions for its desultory disposal, says Steve Connor

Awareness is the beginning to solving any problem. At first I was astonished at the number of people who were simply unaware of this extremely large problems existence. But, this is not something an industry that is making $100's of billions of dollars producing and selling these products wants us to know. The bottled water industry is making over $100 billion worldwide and over $16 billion in the United States each year selling us filtered tap water in plastic bottles that is only meant to be used once then thrown away. The only sustainable thing they are providing is profit for them.

There is power in numbers. Simple adjustments in our daily behavior and using reusable stainless steel water bottles can create positive change. For more information please visit the referenced articles below.

I get asked that question a lot. Actually, its more to the tune of what on earth made you come up with that idea? or..., why do you think this is so important?

Okay, there is my sales pitch. Now, let me tell you why I chose to get so involved.

About 5 years ago I read Blue Gold by Maude Barlow and Tony Clark. In short, this book informs us of the bottled water industry and the banking industry's aggressive efforts to privatize our public water supplies; the water we, the US tax payers, currently own. This book opened my eyes to some ugly truths that are going on right now under our very noses. As a matter of fact, we, the public, are financing these ugly truths every time we purchase bottled water.

Most bottled water companies are not American owned companies. Do we want our fresh water supplies owned by foreign countries? Bottled water is already ounce-for-ounce more expensive than gasoline. Currently, from our own homes, we can fill an 8oz. glass of water 15,000 times with filtered tap water and it will still cost less than buying a 12-pack of bottled water.

Chances are if you drink filtered tap water from your home, you are drinking the same water that you are purchasing in bottles. Whether we like it or not, close to 50% of ALL bottled water is just regular tap water that has been filtered from a US municipal water source as our public water supplies. We are being led to believe that bottled water is safer and fresher than tap water, but the truth is that it is not.

Although they try to persuade us to believe bottled water is safer, I challenge you to find a bottled water company that will print or even say that their water is safer. The fact is they wont and they cant, because its simply not true. In 2007, the bottled water industry reported revenues in excess of $16 billion in the United States and over $100 billion worldwide. These corporations are using billions of dollars to aggressively lobby our politicians in Washington to enact legislation allowing them to privatize our public water supplies. How are these billions of dollars made? By selling consumers attractively packaged single-use water bottles filled with regular filtered tap water. These multinational corporations want to own our water and sell it back to us for thousands of percents more than we currently pay. Let me ask you, when was the last time a politician or a big corporation represented our best interest?

Many people are simply not aware that we are running out of fresh water. Although 70% of the planet is covered in water, only 2.6% is fresh drinking water. The United Nations released a report last year stating that by the year 2025 over two-thirds of our planet will not have enough fresh water to sustain basic life. That is 17 years from now. Fresh water is the most valuable natural resource we have, even more valuable than oil. We need fresh water to live. That is why it is so important to the corporations and banks to own it hence, Blue Gold. Do we want these multinational companies to have that kind of control over our survival?

Project Earth H2o offers you an opportunity to deal with these realities before these realities deal with you; an opportunity to make a statement; an opportunity to stand up to these large corporations who are trying to take that which is yours; an opportunity to help save our planet and stop the environmental and economic atrocities created by the production, transportation and disposal of single-use bottled water. When people use Project Earth H2o brand stainless steel water bottles they know that together we are making a difference.
