I'm Spiritual, Dammit

Bottled water with a mantra?

I thought I'd heard it all when I read about H20m- bottled water infused with "joy" and "love".  After my blog was posted, I received an email from the CEO of a company called Aquamantra .
Now you can buy water "infused with positive energies and powerful mantras."



What kind of mantras you may ask?  How about I AM GRATEFUL, I AM LUCKY, I AM LOVED, and I AM HEALTHY.  Yes- the folks at Aquamantra say that by drinking this water, you will feel the thoughts that are specific to each mantra.  Their inspiration for creating this water was once again the 2004 movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?" and Masaru Emoto's book "The Hidden Messages in Water".

While I recently vowed to go back to my tap water, I am impressed with Aquamantra's 100% Biodegradable, 100% Recyclable, and 100% Compostable bottles.  So I think I'm going to order some and give this mantra water stuff a try.  If I'm going to pay for water that is in a bottle, I at least like to know the source or that their bottles are recycled. 

"You don't believe in any of that crap do you?!"  My friend Armen recently asked me when I was talking about this blog.

I do believe in Masaru Emoto's research- so until I try it, I'm not going to say it's all just great marketing to get me to buy water.

I can't decide if I should try I AM LOVED or I AM LUCKY?  Maybe they can mix and match for me and deliver a variety pack?  I could use some I AM GRATEFUL too now that I think about it.

I applaud Congress for demanding that bottled water be held to the same standards as tap.

If the reliable water that flows from our municipal systems has consistently met the EPA’s guidelines, shouldn’t bottled water corporations like Coke, Pepsi, and Nestlé be held to the same standards?

Unlike the EPA, which is required to provide consumers with complete information about the quality of their water and report quality breaches, the FDA lacks a strong capacity to monitor bottled water companies. As watchdog groups like Corporate Accountability International have long-demanded (www.thinkoutsidethebottle.org), the very least that private companies could do is supply information on the quality and source of their water.

Transparency has always benefited the consumer. If corporations like Coke continue refraining from the same standards of evaluation as public systems, it is my deepest hope that Congress and the public will help to reverse this trend.
