The EPA states, "The Food and Drug Administration has not established a shelf life for bottled water. Bottled water can be stored indefinitely if it is kept in the proper environment. Bottled water should be kept in a dry place out of direct sunlight and stored at room temperature or cooler. Bottled water should also be kept away from toxic chemicals, such as cleaning agents, solvents or gasoline."
Purifying water is also a great way of keeping clean water accessible. The AquaPak from Solar Solutions is an amazing water purifier. It uses solar heat to pasteurize water and can produce up to four gallons a day, enough safe drinking water for 8 people. A small wax indicator melts when the water meets the appropriate temperture. AquaPaks can be used everyday for three years!!
I am excited to offer the AquaPak as our current Giveaway!
