Give Your Body a Break!
Water makes up about 60% of your body’s weight—your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work properly. Lack of water can lead to dehydration. Water gets rid of wastes, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and protects sensitive tissues. For your body to function correctly, you must replenish its water supply by consuming beverages and foods that contain water. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is about 15.5 cups of fluids for men and about 11.5 cups of fluids a day for women. Fourteen cups a day is 112 ounces, or about 7 bottles of water per person, every day. That’s a lot of bottles to carry inside—give your back a break!
Give the Environment a Break!
Single-use plastic bottles are a leading cause of environmental pollution. About 70% of plastic water bottles bought in the United States end up in landfills or in the oceans, harming the ecosystem and poisoning animals.
A reverse osmosis drinking water system takes up minimal space in your home and gives you contaminate-free water straight from your tap and into your refillable water bottle. c and j water can even hook the RO up to your refrigerator and ice maker.
Give Your Wallet a Break!
Bottled water is expensive. It can cost between 400 to 2,000 times more than tap water, four times more than a gallon of milk, and three times more than a gallon of gasoline. If you buy bottled water in bulk, it’s about $.19 per bottle. If you drink the recommended amount every day, that adds up to over $485 per person, every year!
