I’m sure most of you have noticed that in the last decade, water consumption has tripled with prices about a hundred times more tap water. Some of us buy it just because we like it, others because they think it taste better then you have those who believe it’s just healthier. But is it worth $33.50 per bottle?
I’m not referring to a 10 or 16 oz. bottle either.
The Japanese drinking water “Hawaiian Deep Seawater”, has become so profitable that the Hawaiian government is now allowing bottlers to use a state-certified logo for their deep seawater for a supposed fee. Hawaii Deep Marine Inc.’s Kona Nigari water, for instance, sells for $33.50 per 2 oz. bottle.
In order to be considered deep seawater it must be obtained from the depths of the sea from 915 feet over 700 feet more than is necessary for the water to be considered deep seawater.
But who drinks a 2 oz. bottle when being thirsty? I’m guessing if you want to drink the good stuff you’d at least want a gallons worth.
NO WAIT…………that’s over $2000.00 per gallon.
Still for those with deep pockets, there is seawater that’s been bottled up that is said to come from 2000 - 3000 feet below the surface. Which raises the price, as water from those depths is very old, very cold and said to be free of the impurities’ and pollutants that can defect surface water.
Deep Seawater is more then likely free of toxics. Being naturally rich in essential nutrients and minerals.
Well that’s how the Japanese are marketing it and their business is booming.
Which makes me stop and think, where could we get something so insanely simple from a unusual place and label it as the newest and healthiest consumption you must have!
Any ideas? Please share them with me!
