Think your triple-carbon-filtering, reverse osmosis-ing, super-distilling water purifier is doing the job? We hate to break it to you, but, quite frankly, it isn’t. The PBS Frontline story “Poisoned Waters” offers a startling and fascinating exposé explaining why. According to scientists, our water systems are saturated with waste particulates from synthetic drugs, agricultural pollutants, home waste treatments, lawn care chemicals, and household cleaners, many of which no water treatment system in the world is high-tech enough to trap. The good news is that the future of our water quality is in our hands. So do your part by going toxic-free by investing in environmentally friendly cleaning and beauty products, furniture, and even clothing—every little bit helps!
