[caption id="attachment_1343" align="alignleft" width="219" caption="Highwater Filters is a Solar Champion!"][/caption] Highwater Filters is proud to be a co-producer of the film project "The Solar Champion" by filmmaker Gerry Balasta. I happened across this project when Gerry posted a CNN ireport about it (See video link below). I was hooked by the inspiring message in the film. I communicated with Gerry and learned about his projects in the Philippines to help the scavengers of the huge landfills there. Thousands of people eek out their existence by collecting garbage from the landfills. It's a dangerous and unhealthy existence. Gerry has been helping some of the people living at one of the landfills by featuring them in his films. He gave them acting lessons and directed them in the films. He set up a foundation to help the people living under very primitive conditions to get educated and to get their basic needs filled. He has partnered different organizations and businesses to help these people on the fringe of society. Gerry documents the plight of these people so well in his award-winning film "The Mountain Thief." I was so impressed with his efforts and by this moving film that I am supporting the production of "The Solar Champion." I believe in this movie and hope you will see why I did and be inspired too. Good luck, Gerry! Here's the link to the video trailer and the Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the film: The Solar Champion Here the link to the trailer for The Mountain Thief trailer.

Silver lining in Supreme Court ruling on Internet Sales Tax.
Silver lining in Supreme Court ruling on Internet Sales Tax.

Last week's Supreme Court ruling (South Dakota v. Wayfair, No. 17-494) may change the way people shop. Large internet companies will now be compelled to charge sales tax on all internet sales in the U.S.

There's a silver lining in the decision. The ruling should encourage consumers to shop in local brick and mortar stores and to purchase from small internet stores like Highwater Filters.

Many people don't trust the water that comes out of their taps. Should they trust the water that comes out of plastic bottles? Not at all.

Nestle, Aquafina, Aqua, Dasani, Evian and other major brands are selling water that does not require testing. And it stands to reason that water sitting in plastic bottles can become contaminated with chemicals that leach from plastic. The sense of security that many consumers feel from bottled water is misguided. That water is not always what you might believe. In fact, more times than not, it isn't.

In a ruling that could have far-reaching consequences for communities that add fluoride to their municipal drinking water, a court in California denied the EPA's request for a protection order that would limit the information courts can view when considering evidence of risks to human health and the environment.
