Bottled Water That Is Truly Good

I am always telling you to drink more water because it is good for you, but did you ever think that drinking water could be good for others too?

charity: water sells virtual bottled water ($20) and gives 100% of your donation to freshwater well projects in Africa. Just one virtual bottle can provide clean water to someone who needs it for 15 years. (Note: You don't get actual water to drink from your $20, it's just a donation.)

If you purchase 24 bottles for $480, you actually receive the water and provide clean water for 24 people for more than 15 years. The $480 is put towards the construction or rehabilitation of a freshwater well, which can produce the equivalent of more than 13 million, 16.9 ounce bottles of water in Africa. (Note: You get actual bottled water from your $480, so you have something to show/drink for your money spent.)

So drink up -- It's good for everyone involved! Not sure how much water you should be drinking, check out the Fit Calculator to find out! While you're there, check out your BMI, calorie evaluator and target heart rate calculator.

Nonny, I'm doing a quick review in my head... Fuji Film... Fiji Water. Yep, it's Fiji. I just look for the colorful label. Thanks for the spelling "heads up." :)

((wonders, "Is it Fuji or Fiji?")) Regardless, I haven't seen that water in my neck of the woods, but I've heard good things about it.

I love Fiji water as well. It doesn't taste like anything at all to me- exactly how water should be. I tried smartwater today, but it tasted like tapwater to me.

Anyone else out there hooked on Fuji water... don't you really just think it tastes so good. Maybe not the philanatropic product that Clarity is, but I was just wondering - is it just my imagination that it tastes so good!? I will give Clarity a try! My husband purifies water for a living... don't get me started about the desperate water needs around the world... we are so priviledged to have plentiful, good, clean water here.

My husband already says I spend too much money on bottled water. LOL. Maybe this will change his mind, though.

That is really cool. I love that it's not really that much money but it affects so many people in such a positive way for such a long time.

I just got out of a meeting where they were drinking water that said something about buying that bottle provided one for charity or something. Don't remember the brand name. Clarity, maybe>?

Drinkable water is a big issue in other parts of the world. You kind of forget that being able to drink tap water.
