From Canada to Mexico with the Grand Canyon in between
Jule Eisendick, founder of the happy choices, has travelled to stunning destinations all over North and Central America. She experienced the breath-taking Canadian wilderness travelling by car. Then beholding one of North America’s most awe-inspiring Landmarks, the Grand Canyon, Arizona. On to Central America, Jule was able to visit some of the beautiful natural sites that Mexico has to offer, including the incredible beaches and wonderful cenotes.
However, each of these three vastly different destinations poses the vital challenge of how to access clean safe drinking water. Firstly in the vast wilderness of Canada, Jule will only be able to access water via rivers, streams and lakes, all of which are extremely unreliable when it comes to safe drinking water. Furthermore, she will have to stay regularly hydrated in the blistering heat of the Grand Canyon. And finally, she will be forced to drink from potentially dangerous tap water in Mexico, another source that can cause serious illness.
Thankfully Jule had her Water-to-Go filter bottle with her on each unique journey. This meant in Canada’s fierce wilderness Jule was able to drink ‘from lakes, waterfalls and rivers. It’s been an awesome feeling to drink wild water, and it was great not to have to carry the heavy water bottles you normally need to carry.’ Furthermore in the Grand Canyon and Mexico Jule could safely and confidently drink from potentially harmful tap water. In fact whilst in Arizona ‘they had bathroom taps with signs and hotel staff saying the tap water is not drinking water’. However, this worrying information didn’t phase them as they ‘safely drank the water with our filter bottle’.

The Canadian team is nestled in the heart of the Alberta, surrounded by picturesque wilderness, bears and beautiful rivers and lakes. Our bottles are well equipped for the Canadian Wilderness, with ‘Giardia’ (aka Beaver Fever) prominent in lakes, ponds, creeks and streams.
According to HealthLink BC “Giardiasis is one of the more common infectious causes of diarrhoea lasting more than 2 weeks.” People most at risk are hikers and travellers in wilderness areas that drink water that has not been correctly treated.
Water-to-Go’s arrival in Canada will be well received by locals who spent an estimated $2.4 Billion CAD on bottled water in 2015 (Source: Euromonitor). That’s around 2.5 Billion litres of bottled water! That’s great news for the planet as reducing the amount of single-use plastic water bottles produced saves valuable natural resources and reduces the amount of plastic waste.
With Water-to-Go, Canadians and travellers to the Great White North can enjoy clean, safe filtered water no matter where they are.
