Last week's Supreme Court ruling (South Dakota v. Wayfair, No. 17-494) may change the way people shop. Large internet retailers will now be compelled to charge sales tax on all internet sales in the U.S.
There's a silver lining in the decision. Individual states can exempt smaller internet sellers who would be significantly burdened by collecting and distributing sales tax to each state and local government. The ruling should encourage consumers to shop in local brick and mortar stores and to purchase from small internet stores like Highwater Filters.
Not only will it boost state and local tax revenue but it will help small businesses that have been struggling or failing because of competition from large e-commerce sellers.
Thank you for supporting small businesses.

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.
Thyroid and Your Drinking Water. Should You Worry?

Make sure your drinking water is not a thyroid antagonist.
It’s pretty basic: Iodine is essential to the function of the thyroid. The thyroid is essential to the function of your body. That said, the thyroid is under threat not only from iodine deficiency, but from unprecedented levels of industrial pollutants. Some of those toxins are in municipally treated as well as untreated drinking water.
