This is the year it’ll finally happen. Bottled water will sell in higher volumes than sugary, chemical-laden soda for the first time ever.

Are Americans finally becoming smarter about what they put into their bodies? Partly. The rising sales of bottled water can also be attributed to our country’s decaying pipe infrastructure.

Lead contamination in Flint, Michigan, Washington, D.C., Newark, New Jersey, and more, has focused attention on America’s decaying pipes. At least $384 billion of improvements are needed to maintain and replace essential parts of the country’s water infrastructure through 2030, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

At our current rate of investment, we should be all caught up with replacing our water pipes by 2290, according to The Waterkeeper Aliance. That means we can fully trust our country’s tap water delivery system in just 274 short years.

That’s part of the reason why Americans will each drink 27.4 gallons of bottled water this year, 1.2 gallons more than soda. People also love that water is calorie-free and as convenient of a can of soda. 

Remember, though, that not all bottled water is equal. Most of the large soda companies, which also own water companies, use tap water. Be sure to look for bottled water that comes from pure mountain springs. Even better, drink bottled water that has a pure living structure, is naturally alkaline, and contains the natural minerals your body needs to maintain proper hydration. 

Simply put, when you’re looking for bottled water, look for Castle Rock Water. 

Earth Today is Earth Day. Celebrated every April 22, events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. At least 193 countries celebrate each year. But what does it mean to celebrate Earth Day? At Castle Rock Water, we prefer not to focus on a specific day to celebrate and treasure our planet. We do so every April 22, but also extend that celebration to each of the remaining 364 days in the year. As a bottled water company, we are determined to show the rest of industry how to bottle responsibly and how to devote resources to protecting our precious Earth. Here’s how we are addressing some of the problems faced by our planet:   Responsible use of resources: It’s an ironic truth that most bottled water companies do not take action to protect the environment in which they operate. Unfortunately, nor do they give back to their local communities or pay for the water that they extract from the earth. One of the largest bottled water companies, in fact, has caused controversy by pumping hundreds of millions of gallons of water out of California with a permit that expired about 30 years ago. That issue has resulted in lawsuits and boycotts of the company’s water products. Situations like this are why people want change in the bottled water industry. There are currently no laws saying that any company is required to pay for water that it extracts. Even so, Castle Rock Water, a small family owned business, has chosen to pioneer new ways of bottling water. That’s why our company pays a fair price to its community for the water it uses, and one of the reasons we have earned the coveted “For Life – Social Responsibility” certification from the IMO. Natural health: Since we’re all living beings on Earth, it’s important to nourish our bodies with the purest hydration possible. From glacier to bottle, Castle Rock Water goes completely untouched by human hands to ensure a premium quality product. Our water contains naturally occurring minerals and trace elements, no added artificial chemicals or nutrients. Our water, unlike our competitors, contains naturally structured living water, the way nature intended it to be. Industry change: Castle Rock Water is one of very few bottled water companies in the world that is fairly dealing with our natural resources. If every company that takes natural resources from the earth would pay fairly for them, our government could be paid for and we could have a tax-free country. Castle Rock Water is making a stand to show it’s possible and, as small as we are, we have already paid close to $500,000 to our local communities. The big four bottled water companies in the United States currently pay nothing. If they paid the same rate that we do, each would give 500 million dollars, for each bottling plant, to the local governments and could bring taxes down substantially. Charitable donations: Castle Rock Water Company coexists with its employees, nature, and its community. The company has donated to many non-profit organizations such as Charity: Water, Living Water International, Walk with MADD, Unlikely Hero’s, and many more local charities. When you purchase Castle Rock Water, you’re not contributing to a massive corporation’s bottom line. Your purchase of Castle Rock Water supports a small company’s efforts to enlighten peoples knowledge of how important it is to know what we put into our bodies. Your purchase supports local communities and provides jobs and resources to local areas. You also happen to get the best bottled water in the world. As a consumer, you can choose to be part of the problem or one of the people working toward a solution. We hope you’ll join us in our commitment to keep our world as pure as our water.   
tap_water_in_america Clean water in the United States is taken for granted. We assume that when we turn on the kitchen tap, clean water suitable for drinking is what comes out. We’ve all grown up with instant access to drinkable water anytime we choose and we all assume the water is clean and healthy. Now, though, we’re starting to hear stories of our tap water not being what we expect. Cities and municipalities have, for decades, treated water that comes out of our taps. They source the water from lakes, rivers, or underground aquifers and begin a process of de-sludging it, filtering it, and adding chemicals to kill bacteria, make it taste better, and even improve our teeth. Flouride, as we all know by now, is a neurotoxin that is often added to city water supplies. Tap water can also include: An article on Dr. Joseph Mercola’s site says even pharmaceutical drugs can be found in drinking water. The article goes on to say,
Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), 11 of which were found in this most recent government test, have become so ubiquitous that many of them are now detected in humans—including children. According to the CDC’s “Fourth National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals” published in 2009, a dozen different types of perfluorinated compounds were detected in Americans tested.
We also know from recent events that city water supplies across America have actually been poisoned and made people extraordinarily sick. That list seems to expand every day. Today we start a new series that looks into those recent events, the chemicals that are causing people to get sick, and how you, as a water-consuming human who wants the best for his or her well-being, can put a stop to it and guarantee your health. Tap water, while conveniently piped directly to your home, can come from mysterious sources and the fluid that comes out when the tap turns on could contain chemicals that will hurt you and your family. Stay tuned as we explore the safety of tap water in America.

Companies like ours typically sell products with a Fair Trade label, which assures consumers that fair prices were paid to producers and/or growers of goods and food. Coffee, chocolate, textiles, and more can be labeled as Fair Trade. Water, though, isn’t a good. Water is a human need and basic right, so therefore is not currently able to be labeled as Fair Trade. But that doesn’t mean the companies that bottle and sell water can’t adhere to fair trade practices. Castle Rock Water is the only water company in the world to hold the “For Life – Social Responsibility Certified Products” certification. No large bottled water corporations currently hold that certification. When you purchase Castle Rock Water, you’re not contributing to a massive corporation’s bottom line. Your purchase supports a small company’s efforts to enlighten people’s knowledge of how important it is to know what we put into our bodies. Your purchase supports local communities and provides jobs and resources to local areas. You also happen to get the best bottled water in the world, bottled in re-usable and recyclable glass bottles. Castle Rock Water can be purchased at natural grocery stores in Southern California and online at Amazon. If you’d like to buy Castle Rock Water in your local area, please ask your favorite grocery store to bring it in for you. Thank you for being part of our bottled water revolution! Have you tried Castle Rock Water?
castle_rock_water_label We could all use a little revitalizing now and then. That’s especially true around the holiday season. Social norms have evolved from the days of low-stress relaxation and gratefulness to high-stress consumerism and expectations. There’s a wonderful article on that topic which says,
The themes of the season are the return of hope, abundance, and protection, the return of the light, and a reminder to return to our spirituality and personal transformation as well.
We hope that our friends across the country can find time to remember that this year. We all know, however, that despite our best intentions stress can take over. That’s why it’s so important to remember to revitalize your body and soul. Believe it or not, the right water is the first step. Despite what you might have been told, all water is not created equal. Water from the tap can actually die. Dead water can’t effectively revitalize a living body. There’s science behind that fact, and we have another blog post that goes into more details, but the bottom line is this:
Not all water hydrates cells and supports life functions equally. Living water can easily penetrate the cells and perform its functions. Dead water, on the other hand, must be reformed and revitalized by the body before it can do its job. Doctors and researchers have determined that drinking living water improves health and longevity but drinking dead water allows cells to dehydrate.
Castle Rock Water is living structured water. It’s “alive”because it is allowed to flow naturally through Mt. Shasta, picking up vital minerals along the way. The water is in a constant state of movement. It’s carefully bottled at the source and flows into each glass bottle unaltered. There is no extra purification process, no reverse osmosis, and no minerals added. When you drink Castle Rock Water, you are consuming live water that can rehydrate your cells and properly support life functions like no other water can. But Castle Rock Water doesn’t only revitalize your body. It also revitalizes your soul. A recent comment on our Facebook page said, “It’s so good because it feels like you’re drinking liquid light.” That’s so true because not only is Castle Rock Water living structured water, it’s also high-frequency water. Since it comes straight from nature, with no artificial ingredients or extra filtration, it retains its natural vibration and is in rhythm with the light that makes all life possible.  That’s just the kind of revitalization that our bodies, and souls, need to thrive. Have you tried Castle Rock Water yet?   
mt-shasta_castle_rock_water Nearly two million people in California have been exposed to uranium in their drinking water. That’s a scary sentence. Uranium, of course, is found naturally in the earth but it’s also a radioactive material that can be refined into exceptionally dangerous weapons of war. The Associated Press said,
Uranium, the stuff of nuclear fuel for power plants and atom bombs, increasingly is showing in drinking water systems in major farming regions of the U.S. West — a naturally occurring but unexpected byproduct of irrigation, of drought, and of the overpumping of natural underground water reserves.
This issue brings up a couple of very important points. People assume that tap water is just as clean as bottled water. Sometimes it is, but you never know what kind of chemicals, man-made or natural, you are putting into your body when you drink it. Chemicals are added for taste, to kill bacteria, and are leeched in from toxic household waste. Uranium is especially scary because it’s not filtered out by standard filtration processes. We want to reassure our customers that there are no traces of uranium in Castle Rock Water. We post the results of water testing on our website and those reports are free for the public to view. Castle Rock Water is infused with many naturally occurring minerals that our bodies need to be healthy. The water is never touched by humans and reaches you in the same pure state as when it flows from Mt. Shasta in energetic streams. Our water is some of the purest, best-tasting, and safest water on Earth. We hope you’ll try it!
Below is a link to an article no other bottled water company will share. Why are we sharing it? Because we believe the industry needs to change, and we will lead the way until it does. We do bottled water differently and we’re leading by example until the industry catches up with us. What do we do?
  1. We pay our community for the water we bottle.
  2. We bottle our water in glass.
  3. We don’t get our water from municipal sources.
Plus, we are the only bottled water company to earn the “For Life- Social Responsibility” certification. That means we’re better for the environment too. Castle Rock Water is living, structured, ancient water that is some of the best tasting water in the world, all while being sourced and bottled responsibly. Here’s the article, which is a good description of why we need to inspire change in the industry. http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/33538-why-the-us-love-affair-with-bottled-water-has-to-stop
Collection of water bottles There’s a story making the rounds on social media that one popular brand of bottled water is actually just tap water. People are naturally upset and feel duped by the big companies that sell bottled water. The truth is that yes, most bottled water comes from the same sources that city tap water uses. The difference is that the companies ship the water via truck to a processing plant where it’s filtered, has minerals added, and then gets bottled. So yes, it’s tap water, but it’s filtered and changed. But it’s not a healthy process for a number of reasons. The corporations don’t pay anywhere near a fair price for the water they extract, which leaves communities with less water and nothing to show for it. Tap water that gets stored and manipulated loses its ability to properly hydrate. We’ve written about that before, and you’re welcome to read up on the details here. Castle Rock Water is bottled water done differently. We pay a fair price back to the community where the water is sourced. We are the only bottled water company in the world to do so. Our water comes directly from the springs of Mt. Shasta and is never touched or changed by humans. The water is constantly recognized as some of the best-tasting water in the world; all without chemical adjustments or additional filtering. Our water is living structured water that is highly beneficial to the human body. Ultimately, we want to encourage other companies to follow us. If we could look back in five years and feel like we had an influence on other brands to bottle water like we do, we couldn’t be happier. Next time you hear someone say that all bottled water is just tap water in a bottle, please send them our way and let them know that Castle Rock does it right.      
Water pipe in the San Bernardino National Forest

Water pipe in the San Bernardino National Forest

One of the largest bottled water companies on the planet extracted approximately 166.5 million gallons of water from the San Bernardino National Forest over the last three years. For free. There’s some controversy over this because a permit is required to pump the water, but the company in question has been pumping without one since 1988. The company has been allowed to continue pumping because of an agreement with the Forest Service while the permit issue is investigated and fixed. That’s nearly 20 years of pumping with an expired permit, though the company has paid a $534 annual fee. The company pays nothing for the actual water extracted. That’s outrageous, isn’t it? You can read more about it here, but the point we want to make is a simple one. Castle Rock Water believes in paying a fair price to the community where water is bottled. If the company in question paid the same rate Castle Rock pays, it would have injected nearly $5 million back into the local economy; money that could have been used for schools, environmental protection, social programs, and more. Across the entire state of California, this company bottles about 700 million gallons, which would amount to $21 million that would have gone back into state and local budgets. Castle Rock isn’t anywhere near the size of this other company, but still has contributed over a half million dollars back to the community of Dunsmuir. There are no rules that say bottled water companies have to do this, but it’s truly the right thing to do. Castle Rock Water will continue to lead by example and advocate that all companies that sell bottled water pay a fair price for it. Until then, you can help by skipping brands that don’t pay a fair price for water and supporting companies that do. It’s just the right thing to do.    
  There are three categories of bottled water companies: Category 1. Big corporations that get their water from municipal tap sources for free, truck it to a central processing facility, then purify it and mix it with additives before bottling it. (This is most of the bottled water on store shelves.) Category 2. Companies that bottle at the source, but don’t pay their community for the water. (There are a few out there.) Category 3. Companies that bottle living water at the source while paying their community a fair sum for the natural resource. (Only one company in the U.S. falls into this category.) If we had our way, the first category would fade away and the third category would become the new normal. Castle Rock Water is the only Category 3 bottled water company in the United States and pays a good price for the water. This benefits the community because the money can be used for programs to improve the area and make the lives of its residents a little better. There’s another immediate benefit to buying Castle Rock Water too. Water from Category 1 companies is “dead.” How can water be dead? In some situations water is full of energy. Sometimes it is sluggish and exhausted and in some conditions it actually dies. Charlie Ryrie, author of The Healing Energies of Water, said,
To an untrained eye dead water still looks like water. So we expect it to do the same job as healthy energetic water.
Not all water hydrates cells and supports life functions equally. Living water can easily penetrate the cells and perform its functions. Dead water, on the other hand, must be reformed and revitalized by the body before it can do its job. Doctors and researchers have determined that drinking living water improves health and longevity but drinking dead water allows cells to dehydrate. Water dies when it’s exposed to the Category 1 process. Its living nutrients and minerals are taken away and its natural state is altered by the time it comes out of the tap. The water loses its vitality and its life-giving force. Category 3 water is living water. Castle Rock Water lives and flows through Mt. Shasta, picking up vital minerals along the way. The water flows naturally through streams and is in a constant state of movement. It’s carefully bottled at the source and flows into each glass bottle unaltered. There is no extra purification process, no reverse osmosis, and no minerals added. When you drink Castle Rock Water, you are consuming live water that can rehydrate your cells and properly support life functions like no other water can. We hope that one day all bottled water will fall into Category 3. For now, though, it’s just us. It’s not the easiest way to do business, but is the right way. Will you join us?
