Happy Holidays, everyone! I just got back from my Holiday Vacation- 4 days in beautiful Puerto Vallarta! Now I'm back and ready to get the Green Holiday Gift Guide really going strong. I have so much to share with you over these next few weeks.
So let's get this going with the Zuvo Water Filtration System!
You turn on your faucet and it's always there- water! But have you ever stopped to think about what may be in that water you are drinking? For as long as I can remember my health-nut father has been telling me "Filter your water! Filter your water!" But Dad uses a large distiller- two gallon sized containers that go into a large device that makes a lot of noise, takes an hour to distill the water, and the water comes out warm. It's not pleasant but for health concerns, it's what needs to be done. Or... is it? When I learned of the Zuvo Water Filtration system I found the light at the end of my water filtration tunnel! No more large contraptions taking up counter space, no more loud noises, and no more hot water! The Zuvo is a small device that filters water in seconds and send it out of an attachment on your faucet, nice and cold!
But let's get back to WHY you should filter your water. Just a simple Google search for "what is in tap water" will give you a lot of scary results- Chlorine, nitrates, even lead! This can cause problems for your family, especially younger children. Some areas also put fluoride into the water system for tooth protection which would be fine in very, very small doses, but what if you drink water constantly? Listen, if you just want cleaner, healthier water and not have to worry about the quality of your drinking water, check out Zuvo!
Zuvo Water Filtration Systems uses Ultraviolet Light and Ozone to filter and treat your tap water in seconds in order to give you and your family clean and healthy water. The water goes directly to your tap as opposed to jugs and containers so there is less waste involved. And watching the water get clean is actually an enjoyable experience- you literally see the filter work right in front of your eyes!
But how does it taste? After first plugging in the Zuvo my lovely boyfriend decided to make some homemade lemonade for us. He made us each two glasses- one using the Zuvo filtered water and one using regular tap water. I was honestly not expecting much of a difference because I don't have that sophisticated of a pallet, but I was surprised to taste a small yet noticeable difference. Without telling me which was which I sampled both lemonades. I selected the glass on my left, not so much because of the taste but because it felt smoother. I had selected the Zuvo filtered water as my preference! It's hard to explain in a blog what the difference really was but there was a very clear and distinct difference between the two water.
There is so much I could get into about this wonderful product it's in sane! But for the purpose of space and time I will let you explore the website and see the other benefits to using a Zuvo Water Filtration System. It's better for your health, better for your wallet, and better for the environment than other water options out there so be sure to check it out and learn all you can. I promise you will quickly be sold on this fantastic product like I was, and your family will thank you for providing them with an easier, healthier, and even funner drinking water option!
A Zuvo Water Filtration System would actually make a great gift for anyone who is very health conscious and wants to have access to healthy water for themselves and their family. I know this would make a great gift for someone like my Dad who is currently stuck with a big, bulky, and noisy filtration system!
What I Love: Ease of use- the Zuvo can be used by anyone easily including children! I love that it filters directly out of the tap and eliminates the need for jugs and containers to store the water in. Getting cold water is also a bit bonus. For kids, watching the water filter through the system is fun and educational as well.
What I Don't Love: My only small complaint about the Zuvo is the tubing used. I rent where I live right now so we keep the system on the counter top so the white tubes that lead in and out of the system are just sitting there. We twisted them around the faucet and tied them up and hid them behind the microwave to hide them a bit, but they are still visible. When we move into our new home that we just purchased I am going to be stashing the Zuvo under the sink and this will dramatically reduce this problem. But just note, if you cannot put the filter under the sink you will need to contain the tubing!
You can buy Zuvo Water Filtration Systems directly from the Zuvo website or from online and in store retailers! Just use their Store Search to find the nearest brick and mortar store near you where you can pick up a Zuvo and save on the costs and energy use involved in shipping!
