Personally, I have come to the conclusion that the simplest and most effective "green" action everyone can take is to switch to a Whole Foods Plant-Based diet. Teh #WFPB nutritional paradigm is a low-entropy lifestyle. I maintain a blog on vegan shopping for my neighborhood. Overall, the economic cost of nutrition based on animal protein is simply staggering, as can be seen in this infographic from Inhabitat, and even more so when combined with the fact that 75% of health care spending in the USA is for the treatment of degenerative ilness that is directly attributable to SAD (Standard American Diet), as is explored in a recent documentary, What the Health.

Also, Water and Energy go hand in hand, and both are an integral part of sustainable development.

Apart from the aspect of conservation, there is the issue of sustainable water use, and... there is always the issue of water quality. Besides unintended contaminants, there are such issues as lead in pipes, chlorination, and fluoridation, and overall water quality. The key to healthy drinking water is to take out the bad, and leave in the good (minerals/electrolytes), and beyond that to have a Relative Hydrogen Score (rH) below 28. Here are the tools to do it:

Some solutions I have found:

  • Clearly Filtered Water Filter - A simple filtered water pitcher that takes out
    the bad, and leaves in the good.
  • Simple Tablets to Make your own HRW (Rejuvenation) - I think this is the superior solution for beginners, and you should try this before buying any kind of HIM. It is straightforward and reliable. There is also a test method for the quality of your HRW, called H2Blue.
  • For general information on HRW, the website of the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation is the go-to.The bottom line is: drinking HRW will give you homeostatic levels of GSH (Glutathione), SOD (SuperOxide Dismutase), catalase, etc. and it is nature's only anti-oxidant that is specific to cytotoxic processes, and does not interfere with any health oxidative functions.
