For 8 years, I lived in New Orleans. The joke is that the tap water comes straight from the Mississippi River and believe me, it tastes like it! Most folks there pay for water to be delivered or buy bottled water.
When we moved back here to Washington State, I was beyond happy to be able to drink straight from the tap. Of course, every other month there are stories about the horrors of tap water – what’s in it, where it comes from, etc. When you drink up to a gallon of water a day, you start to think about these things.
With a billion brands of bottled water on the market, what makes 16 different?
16 is naturally purified as it passes through sixteen layers (1400 feet!!) of volcanic bedrock. Minerals are infused naturally without any artificial processing.
Mt. Halla, which is a volcanic island off the coast of South Korea, has been designated a World Natural Heritage site by the United Nations.
16 Water tastes like, well, water. And that’s a good thing right? With other brands who have minerals added to it, there can sometimes be a slight aftertaste. 16 is refreshing and almost like drinking tap water that has been through softening…just more convenient.
I did a little experiment with my kiddos after I received my samples of 16 Water. My kids don’t get excited about water, as most don’t. I am constantly telling them to drink a glass, especially my son who plays football. For one of his practices, I filled his water bottle with chilled . Water. Usually, he will come home with plenty of water leftover. But on this particular day, he drank all of his water and was asking for more. I said something along the lines of “Man, you must be thirsty!” and he told me that he wasn’t particularly thirsty but that for some reason it just tasted good that day. Seriously! I was thrilled that my experiment was successful. And I was beyond thrilled that my son was asking for more water!
Visit 16 Water online and check out their story for yourself. Then try it for yourself and I think you’ll be excited for bottled water again.
