I’ll be honest.
Up until just now, I have NOT been as good as I should have about reducing plastic waste and using a water filtration system that could remove toxins, parasites, chemicals and other pollutants from my water.
...The reason why? I did not want to ruin my kitchen sink 🙈and have it drilled to install an extra mini faucet (which is what happens when you install an under the sink filter). And I didn’t trust filter pitchers enough to actually drink “filtered” water.
What if these filters don’t remove everything?
What if I am better off drinking bottled spring water?
I wanted to learn more about it and started reading a bunch. I discovered that Berkey created a system that can purify ANY type of water. Even non potable one. Like untreated water from lakes, rivers and streams!
I found out that Berkey filters out 203 different type of contaminants, including: pesticides, viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites to undetectable levels, and it even removes unwanted chemicals and heavy metals like lead and mercury!
…And we all know very well how these things can provoke inflammation in the body and trigger an autoimmune response.
I am super happy to finally start drinking my own purified water (with confidence that it’s actually good for me) while simultaneously helping protect the environment and stop contributing to the current plastic waste emergency!
…Not to mention, using a Berkey filter will help me save money and avoid numerous trips to the store just to go buy water!!
Definitely consider getting a Berkey filter too if you are thinking about a more sustainable way to drink water and and want to step up your water filtration game!!
And did I mention that it looks very stylish too? It’s like having a new design piece in the house!
Hope you found this post about my experience with safer water filters interesting and useful and I am excited to hear a bout your experience in a comment below!
