The Cost of Bottled Water

Next to carbonated beverages, bottled water ranks second as America’s favorite drink. But is bottled water the right choice for your hydration? Is it even the right choice for your recession-friendly budget?

Obviously, bottled water is much healthier than sugary, caffeinated sodas, but is it really worth the cost? You may be surprised at what Americans actually spend on bottled water every year. Take a look at how Kangen Water® compares to the cost of staying hydrated with popular bottled water brands:

 

When times are tough, don’t rely on expensive bottled water to keep your body healthy when there is a better way! Kangen Water® is exactly what your pocketbook needs to keep your family hydrated on a dime.

The Bottled Water Illusion

Why are so many Americans paying a fortune to stay hydrated with bottled water? Unfortunately, many people are under the misconception that bottled water is the healthiest choice available, and they are willing to pay top dollar for it.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found that bottled water is not safer than tap water, and some companies even use tap water for their more expensive bottled product1! The EPA urges all consumers to check with the bottled water company in order to find if any contaminants are contained in their drinking water1.

But you don’t have to accept the fact that your drinking water may contain pollutants or contaminants. You can proactively seek a healthy water that is filtered, ionized, and alkalized!

Are you participating in a Secret Santa gift exchange this year? No matter how well you know the person you’re buying for, here are some great gift ideas that are sure to be a hit with everyone in your workplace or circle of friends!

1. Hot Cocoa Gift Set. Instead of buying an expensive, pre-packaged gift set, make your own at home. You need one or two packages of instant hot cocoa (preferably a gourmet brand such as Godiva or Cacao Reserve Hershey’s), a festive holiday mug, a handful of mini marshmallows, and a small container of pre-measured Kangen Water®. Put your items in a beautiful little basket with lots of ribbon for the perfect presentation.

Homemade Holiday Soaps2. Homemade Holiday Soaps. These charming decorative soaps are the perfect touch to any household. Check out our preferred recipe with Kangen Water® here .

3. Flowers in a vase full of Kangen Water®. Most Secret Santa gift exchanges include a list of “favorites” for each participant. If you already know your recipient’s favorite flower, you’re in luck! If not, look for red, white, or green blooms that fit in your budget. Remember to include a card explaining why Kangen Water® is a healthy choice for plants and flowers!

Scented Sugar

4. Scented Sugar1. This is the perfect little gift for anyone who enjoys holiday baking! In a small attractive, airtight container, add a delightfully fragrant and edible ingredient to granulated sugar. Rose petals, orange peels, lemon peels, or vanilla beans are a delicious choice. You can even mix orange peel and vanilla beans for a special gourmet aroma.

5. Homemade Kangen Water® Laundry Detergent. Make your own all-natural laundry detergent at home (find the recipe here). Package this unique gift in a clear plastic bag with beautiful holiday ribbon and a homemade card with your recipe and the benefits of using natural Kangen Water® Laundry Detergent.

Holiday Music6. Holiday Music. Everyone loves a great holiday album, and they are affordable and usually very easy to find. Our favorites are Christmas Song by Nat King Cole, White Christmas by Bing Crosby, A Very Special Christmas by various artists, and Noel by Josh Groban. If you’re looking for a youthful album, Mariah Carey’s new Merry Christmas II You is sure to be a big hit!

7. A Sampling of Enagic’s 5 Waters. Give the gift of hydration and overall wellness with all 5 types of Enagic® water! Fill small canning jars or recycled essential oil bottles with the waters and carefully label each container. Then write down your favorite uses for each water on a homemade card. Put them in a basket or festive gift bag for the final holiday touch.

8. Gift Cards. Perhaps this idea lacks in the creativity department, but it’s always appreciated! Choose a store or restaurant that’s a local favorite, or try to observe where your lucky recipient routinely buys breakfast or lunch.

Remember, if Kangen Water® is part of your Secret Santa gift, you should always include a little information about why this delicious water is a healthy choice.

Get in the holiday spirit, and enjoy being an innovative and creative Secret Santa!
