Welcome to the world’s most advanced portable water filtration system. It is not only the best option for adventure use but also the best filter for everyday tap water and we are excited to show you why.
Let’s start with water. It’s a fundamental human need. At Least 60% of our bodies are made of water and every living cell in the body needs it to keep functioning.
The maximum time someone can go without water is about a week – most of us would probably kick the bucket within three days. On the scale of basic human survival water is second only to breathing. Are we getting enough of it?
Many of us actually do drink enough water; however, we may not be drinking the right water. A lot of us feel safe because the water we drink comes from the tap or it’s packaged in a plastic bottle. If only it was that simple.
Water is vital to life and when water is polluted it’s pretty devastating to human health.
While there are more than 80 contaminants that the government instructs water suppliers to remove there are many more unregulated toxins.
The US public water systems treat and deliver over 44 billion gallons of water every day. Unfortunately, our water and wastewater infrastructure is underfunded, aging, in need of upgrades, and strained by a growing population.
Underfunded wastewater infrastructure leads to between 23,000 and 75,000 sewage leaks every year. This allows 1.26 trillion gallons of untreated sewage to leak into our waterways. Just recently in Flint Michigan thousands of children have been exposed to drinking water with high levels of heavy metals and may be experiencing a range of serious health problems.
Even if the water leaves the source in a relatively clean state, it travels through pipes, which may have been underground for a very very long time. It is almost impossible for the water not to become contaminated by something undesirable.
Polluted water isn’t just dirty –it’s deadly. Some 1.8 million people die every year of diarrheal diseases like cholera. Tens of millions of others are seriously sickened by a host of water-related ailments.
Did you know that half of the world’s hospital beds are filled with people suffering from a water-related disease? In developing countries as much as 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions only 1 in 9 people in the world have access to safe and clean drinking water Nearly 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease.
Viruses, Bacteria, and other biological “nasties” are one thing, but unfortunately most
water also contains arsenic, fluoride, chlorine and a host of other unhealthy toxins. So when we take this mixture of toxic, poisonous chemicals into our bodies it can be dangerous and at the very least overburdening work for our immune system.
The quality of our water is directly linked to the quality of our lives. If you have any nagging health issues, you may want to start by addressing the water you drink.
The Journey water filter bottle utilizes a patent pending filtration media that strips all the "bad stuff" out of water at an incredible flow rate. It has been tested and certified by independent water labratories to meet or exceed EPA standards.
