I'm a mom, so keeping my family safe and healthy is very important to me. I've also been trying to institute more eco-friendly practices into my family's life. From recycling to purchasing more recycled materials, every thing we change up has a positive impact on our lives as well as the Earth.
One thing I have cut out completely (even prior to this review) is bottled water. I've read so many studies that say that the plastic that the bottles are held in could be cancerous, as well as how long they take to break down in a landfill.
That's why when I was approached to do a review on the Zuvo Water Filtration System (aka Zuvo Water Purator), I jumped at the chance.
About the Zuvo:
Zuvo offers user friendly new technology that reduces unwanted, potentially unhealthy contaminants in drinking water -- without stripping it of the trace minerals that give water its refreshing, distinctive taste. It works in real time with no waiting. No other water cleansing system can make this claim of cleanliness combined with good taste.
This small home water treatment appliance is based on a patented technology platform that reproduces the photo-oxidation process naturally occurring in the environment (go to www.zuvowater.com for a more detailed explanation of the five-step process). It is an easy-to-install, cost-effective device ($.06 per gallon, compared to more than $1 per gallon for bottled water, over the course of a year) not requiring interim plastic pitchers or chemical additives. As an added bonus, eliminating the use of bottled water helps reduce the 32.8 billion water bottles that end up in landfills every year and it requires fewer filter changes that the famous name brand filter systems on the market.
The Zuvos retail for $299.99 and are way more cost effective than disposable filter brands.
Did You Know?
President Obama's anti-cancer panel has just released its annual report on "Reducing Environmental Cancer Risks What We Can Do Now" recommending that people use home water filtering devices to decrease exposure to cancer-causing agents. The report states:
"Individual and families have many opportunities to reduce or eliminate chemical exposures, filtering home tap water or well water can decrease exposure to numerous known or suspected carcinogens or endocrine-disrupting chemicals."
The report further points out that children are at special risk for cancers from environmental contaminants due to the numerous toxic by products that leach into drinking waters from plastic bottles and unfiltered tap water.
The Solution for Reducing Cancer Risk
There is a solution to this cancer risk. Families can get unlimited quality water for both drinking and cooking directly from their faucets with an affordable Zuvo Water Home Filtration System.

Get Off the Bottle
Just because children have smaller bodies does not mean they need less water. Water is in fact one of the most important nutrients for children. And because our bodies are 75% water, we can’t live without water and can survive only for about three days without it. The fact that your readers turn to you for the latest in healthy eco friendly products and advice, Zuvo should be a perfect fit. Zuvo raises the bar for water purity and taste. (ranked #1 over Fiji, Aquafina, Brita, Pur, Aquapanna, Evian and Smart Water by the San Francisco Chronicle and Wine & Spirits Magazine) at the most cost-effective price, Zuvo eliminates the need for expensive and eco-unfriendly plastic bottled waters, in fact if the water we use at home cost what even cheap bottled water costs our monthly water bills would run about $9000.00.
In addition the statistics surrounding the diseases and pollutants found in tap water are astounding. More and more individuals and families are starting to invest in water purification systems in order make sure their water enhances their health, rather than diminishes it.

As a Cancer-survivor, you could say I'm a bit paranoid about cancer. I've had it once and I don't want to have it again! If I can reduce my risk just a little bit by using the Zuvo Water Purator, I can sleep a little easier!
I've always hated the taste of water (or should I say the LACK of taste?!) People used to laugh at me on one of my recent jobs, because I used to tell them I HATE water. They didn't understand. I can't even explain it - I just HATE it! The only way I would drink is it if I bought bottle water. I cannot drink tap water! at all!
I have numerous pitchers (3 in total) that I used to use to get my water cleaner. Now I just use the Zuvo, and I'm enjoying tasty water! (Yes, I LIKE water now!)
