National Shower with a Friend Day

February 5, 2023 All day

February 5th is National Shower with a Friend Day!

It’s not what it seems though!

It’s actually a day that encourages us to understand the importance of chlorine-free water.

Chlorine is a chemical commonly used in water treatment facilities to purify and disinfect water. However, some people believe that chlorine in drinking water can have negative health effects and are concerned about the presence of chlorine byproducts, such as trihalomethanes (THMs), which have been linked to cancer and other health issues.

One of the main benefits of chlorine-free water is improved health and well-being. Chlorine and its byproducts can be harmful to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system, and can also contribute to dry skin and hair. Chlorine-free water can help reduce these health concerns and improve overall comfort.

Another benefit of chlorine-free water is improved taste and odor. Chlorine can give water a distinct taste and odor that many people find unpleasant. Chlorine-free water is often considered to have a more natural taste and odor, making it more appealing to drink.

In addition, chlorine-free water can be more environmentally friendly. Chlorine can have negative impacts on the environment, such as contributing to water pollution and damaging wildlife and aquatic habitats. Chlorine-free water treatment methods can help reduce these environmental impacts.

Finally, chlorine-free water can also be more cost-effective in the long run. Chlorine is a chemical that needs to be constantly added to water to maintain its effectiveness, which can be costly. Chlorine-free water treatment methods, such as using ultraviolet light or ozone, can be more cost-effective in the long run and are more sustainable.

Chlorine-free water has several benefits, including improved health and well-being, improved taste and odor, reduced environmental impact, and cost savings. If you are concerned about the health effects of chlorine in drinking water, switching to chlorine-free water may be a good option.

Happy National Shower with a Friend Day
