Shri S Nambi Narayanan says “With BookWater, drinking clean water is no longer rocket science. BookWater with it’s connected can technology is solving fundamental problems concerning drinking water. Am happy to be associated with a brand with such noble intent and purpose.”
With the deteriorating condition of ground water and limited access to clean water. India is increasingly relying on bottled water. As per the latest available National Statistical Office’s report, an estimated 12.2% of urban Indian households rely on bottled water for their drinking water needs – up significantly from 2.7% in 2009. Most of this water is sourced through 20L plastic water cans.
But is the water we consume from these 20L CANs safe
There are many aspects to water cans; the material, the usage, the standards, age, storage conditions among others. Many of the cans in which drinking water is stored are not even food grade!
Even leading brands are often counterfeited, and duplicates are prevalent in the market. Even if the cans were of a good quality, they cans are reused so many times that they are “no longer safe” to touch drinking water – the elixir of life.
When water cans are used repeatedly, microcracks form inside the CANs due to stress and UV ray damage. Microorganisms such as algae and fungi embed into these cracks and cannot be flushed out completely even with disinfectants. This is the reason why certain CANs acquire a greenish tinge and effectively put the health of consumers at significant risk. Further, the degrading CANs leech significantly more microplastics into the drinking water since their structural integrity has been compromised. Consuming these microplastics poses several chronic and long-term health effects ranging from potentially life-threatening diseases such as cancer to neurological diseases.
There are multiple reports from both governmental as well as Nongovernmental organizations that describe the issue of contaminated water in 20L containers.
