Love Mother Earth

I was watching an amazing documentary directed by Leonardo DiCaprio… this is a free plug! … #unpaid. Titled “Ice on Fire” on HBO, it’s full of a lot of information and interesting facts, but one that stuck out most to me was the one that showed a graph of CO2 levels in the atmosphere over millions of years.

carbon cycle, carbon footprint, global co2 levels

If pictures paint a thousand words, this visual is no exception. The line on the graph shows that for hundreds of years, the CO2 level was low…until the arrival of humans. It looked like this one...

As technology advanced, the line increased and with the advent of the industrial revolution… trains, planes and automobiles…as I like to call it “human conveniences”, coupled with electricity and all the modern world provides us, that CO2 level crept upwards. Between the 1890’s and 2018 the line dramatically spikes up to scary levels.

And so, this blog is not for those of you reading to dispute climate change, or all the political or scientific details surrounding it, but to simply ask one question:

Do you think humans can take over the world, develop it, deplete its resources, fight over it, and remain at the top of the food chain, without the consequences of an in-balance of something… anything… on the planet?

We dig the ground and expect it to stay stable?

We flatten land and build roads but expect nature to adjust on its own?

We increase our consumption of the Earth’s resources but expect it to be able to continue to support us?

We dump waste into the oceans and into the air and expect the status quo of the Earth to not change?

Let’s think about those one by one….

We dig the ground and expected to stay stable?

Waste water injection wells (which is exactly what that sounds like – injected waste water into fractures in the earth…) as well as skyscrapers, dams, and of course drilling have all been shown to cause Earthquakes and other seismic activity. We get scared when an earthquake or tsunami hits our communities globally, but why not try to prevent before we are forced to react? By changing the actions of humans that can cause these natural disasters, we can protect both ourselves and the earth at the same time.

We flatten land and build roads but expect nature to adjust on its own?

In Florida, the Tamiami Trail (Highway 41) cutting through the Everglades has created a change in flow of water between the north and the south, leading to a complete change in the food chain, landscape and more. This has resulted in some species fighting for survival, while others have flourished. We haven’t thought it through…we built a road impacting the fate of some animals, simply because it’s more convenient for us to drive though instead of around. Now, there’s a massive project to begin restoring some of the water flow, which has helped, but the result is far from perfect and while the work won’t be completed until 2030, it will not restore the Everglades to how it was prior to this human interruption.

We increase our consumption of the Earth’s resources but expect it to be able to continue to support us?

As we increase in both our need for “stuff”, and we increase in population, we put pressure on the Earth’s resources. Overconsumption is tied directly to manufacturing. Of course, the increased production and consumption of foods and beverages puts strain on global resources.

The second largest consumed items include all clothing and footwear. In 2012, a study showed less than 1% of clothing was still in use after 6-months. Manufacturing puts pressure on and depletes resources and supplies as well as releasing manufacturing waste into the rivers, oceans and into the air. Also… where do all those unwanted items go after less than 6 months of use? A landfill perhaps?

We dump waste into the oceans and into the air and expect the status quo of the Earth to not change?

Whether you believe climate change is “upon us” or not, do you think when a factory billows black smoke up into the atmosphere, whatever it may contain, that the Earth is able to shrug its shoulders and accept our waste without it creating an in-balance somewhere with something? Of course, there is an in-balance.

And that’s all any of this is about. Over millions of years, the Earth has created a perfect ecological balance; plants produce things animals need and use; in turn animals give back what plants need and use and, within reason, the Earth has had a smooth, balanced carbon cycle. The problem comes when the amount of stuff being output by humans is overloading the natural system, and it is all becoming in-balanced – the Earth can’t keep up with processing all the output of humans.

We also cannot compute as humans that a tiny change of a number such as pH or a percentage can make such a large impact. Ocean Acidification is a perfect example. According to scientists it is causing major impacts in the ocean and on sea life. But the actual change in pH is only 0.1pH… which seems so tiny to make such a huge difference, but if it changes another 0.1pH, the effect could be devastating.

The goal of global climate balance is for us to give back to the Earth the same as what we output. If we do this, we lessen the strain on the planet so that is has time to correct itself. Of course, the focus is on things like Plastics, Carbon (CO2) and Nitrogen, among so many others.

Houses are replacing trees, CO2 replacing oxygen, plastic replacing fish, waste replacing nature, humans replacing animals, acidic water replacing alkaline water, convenience replacing thoughtfulness.

Our message of the day today is “Love the Earth as you would love yourself.” It is screaming out for help….
Are we going to listen?

About PUR2o

We are striving to provide as many people as possible with filtered, purified, naturally alkaline and ionized water for drinking and cooking straight from the tap, for three reasons. We care about the health of YOU, the health of our PLANET and the health of your POCKET!


Our goal is to provide as many people as possible with pure, crystal clear, safe & healthy water.

PUR2o Alkaline water is shown to benefit: Overall health and energy, weight management, muscle stimulation, brain power, digestive system, mood, body temperature, youthfulness, complexion, lifespan, and boosting your immune system.


We are also committed to creating a greater awareness of how plastic and plastic bottles are polluting our planet and our bodies by providing the best water out of your tap, eliminating the amount of plastic we dispose of and how much water we consume out of plastic bottles.


Aside from all the health benefits of Alkaline Water, you save a tremendous amount of money with our systems! Did you know?…. If you drink eight glasses of water each day, it will cost approximately $55 per year; vs $1,700 if you were to drink the same amount of bottled water instead. The PUR2o system pays for its self in only one year by one persons water consumption.
