Mount Franklin’s perspective

Well I thought it’s best to look in to both sides and here what is being said so I had a read from their site and found they have their own challenge going…
Some say it takes 30 days to form a new habit
With the party season in full swing, now is the perfect time to form a new habit that can help you look and feel your best. If you haven’t been drinking enough fluid, aiming for 2 litres every day for 30 days means you can start to enjoy the benefits of proper hydration. Drinking water can help you maintain your energy levels and think more clearly and can also help your eyes appear brighter and your skin look clearer.

Here is how they answer a few questions:
I think yo can really make anything sound good and needed if you place your answers in the right context, like why bottles water is so good as it actually help to hydrate your body, and how good they are at helping Australian’s to recycle.

How good are Australians at recycling?
Our Refresh Recycle Renew campaigns, which were launched in 2004 and include the provision of recycling bins in major public places and at events such as the Tamworth Country Music festival and the recent Live Earth concerts, aim to help people recycle containers when people are away from home.

Why should I drink water over other drinks?
For general day to day hydration, obtaining most of your fluid intake from water is recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council’s Dietary Guidelines for Australians. Other drinks such as milk and tea, as well as some fruits and vegetables, can also help you reach your daily target of fluid intake.

Isn’t it more environmentally friendly for people to refill their bottles?
For health reasons, we recommend you do no not refill bottles because of potential bacteria.

By selling bottled water, are companies trying to replace good water out of the tap or a bubbler?
We are lucky in Australia to have access to clean water from the tap. With our bottled water brands, CCA provides something consumers want – a chilled, healthy and delicious beverage which is conveniently packaged for when they’re out and about or at their desk.

Can you drink too much water? How much should I drink each day?
You should drink water in accordance with the guidelines of the National Health and Medical Research Council. These guidelines recommend adult men drink 2.6 litres of fluid and adult women drink 2.1 litres of fluid per day. On top of this, your fluid intake can be increased if you’re living or working in extremely hot climates.

Doesn’t bottled water contribute to a lot of carbon miles?
All ‘Mount Franklin’ water is produced in plants across Australia near the water sources so that water is not freighted across the country (or shipped in from overseas like some water). This saves on carbon miles.
