Not an April's Fools Day Joke.

Yesterday ended Highwater Filter's pledge drive to donate 10% of sales from our Highwater Filters store to disaster relief efforts in Japan following the devastating earthquake, tsunami, and currently the nuclear emergency that threatens the area surrounding the Fukushima nuclear plant. I am pleased to donate $225.00 more to the charity Architecture for Humanity. See my previous post to learn why I chose this non-profit to donate to. Thank you to everyone who chose Highwater Filters to purchase your portable water treatments from. Please follow us on facebook and twitter to learn of upcoming special promotions and sales. May the recovery efforts in Japan lift the spirits of a very traumatized nation and may the Japanese people overcome the tremendous loss they are currently experiencing.

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.
