When we talk about the shelf life of bottled water, we have two numerators to choose from, plastic bottled water and bottled mountain spring water, which is not one of the freshest mountain spring waters but also rain spring water in comparison to filtered so-called mineral water.
The shelf life of plastic bottled water is approximately 2 years; it is not much because of the water, but rather the plastic becomes beyond non-edible at that moment, degrading to toxic levels that are harmful to the human body.
In comparison to the shelf life of bottled mountain spring water, enclosed in aluminum packaging is about 30 years and plus, some even rank it towards almost half a century; why is that, you ask?
Our mountain spring water bottle is flushed with nitrogen, which was the groundbreaking experiment carried out by some companies on aluminum cans that eliminates any chance of bacteria. On the other side, side preserving benefits that come with aluminum make it a great choice to occupy your shelves forever without the need of putting a sale on them to sell quickly before they rot.
There may be many self-proclaimed mountain spring water brands that you see in the supermarket that abuse the use of plastic. Simply is incomprehensible.
Our mountain spring water bottle is sourced from the high altitudes mountainous region of Atlanta, which receives rain forest rains all year long, sending 100 percent natural mountain spring water from the heavens down, which is filtered itself by the atmospheric oxygen, air themselves then passes through the rocky formations, which adds electrolytes and other minerals into it, then, at last, all collected into an aquafer which pressures itself to our aluminum bottles of mountain spring water.
On the other hand, the alternative presented to you is bottled plastic water that is neither sustainable nor healthy for you or the environment we live in. Firstly, plastic bottled water has only 2 years shelf life, but what they sometimes forget to inform as the properties of its chemical composition keep degrading, which is why it gets mixed through small plastic particles into the water, altering the PH value of the water but also making them more acidic in taste.
This acidic taste poses significant health risks for people who are daily consuming it, like cancer, diabetes, even heart disease, and other deadly diseases that various reports suggest.
Apart from the taste, the sustain ableness of plastic is zero, as most of these bottles neither can be used elsewhere nor recycled, which is why they keep coming; the cost of producing it is very cheap, which is why companies who operate in the water industry love it without even thinking about doing ethical business, especially in this time when the world is switching to green energy and materials.
Plastic water bottles have their own land in the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii, which I size a country; this reflects that we must act and make our switch quickly.
