Humans are edging towards a world where the need to create for ourselves, a better way of living within our own environment is essential. We are becoming a concession of how we consume, what we eat, where it comes from and where it's going. According to Medical News Today “Most of the human body is water, with an average of roughly 60%.” As it is equally important to eat cleanly, it is also equally important, to consume our water cleanly too.
