Join O&N Collective’s Project Hydrate: 30 Day Challenge; For A Healthier You & Planet

 

by: Organic Contessa

Spring’s the time for cleansing and renewal. This is also a time when we begin to take stock of the resolutions/intentions that some of us made on New Year’s Day, mostly having to do with our health and treating our bodies better. Spring is the season of rebirth and may just be the “oomph” we need in prioritizing balance to jump start and focus more on our physical, mental and spiritual wellness.  So what better time to amp the stakes and take on a challenge – one that’s got “good for you” & “good for the planet” written ALL over it! How about trying this for the next 30 days?!

O&N Collective recently launched their Project Hydrate: 30 Day Challenge, in an effort to inspire people to be more aware and conscious of their water intake whilst reducing consumption of plastic. Different studies have indicated that our bodies are made up of 50% to 75% water – so it’s clear that water is not only a vital building block within the foundation of our physical form, but it’s equally important to continue to consume water on a daily basis as our skin, cells, organs, and tissues desperately need this nutrient to survive and function properly.

Here’s The Scoop

Want healthier, happier, younger looking skin? Pure, fresh water is certainly the way … by increasing your intake, in just 30 days you’ll see and feel the difference. bkr reusable glass water bottles are exactly what the holistic doctor ordered for health conscious, earth conscious people like you!

Here’s All You Need

Purchase your bkr water bottle at O&N Collective
Increase your intake of water to at least 3L (6 bkr bottles) per day, for 30 days
Instagram photos of you and your bkr; on the go, at the gym or yoga studio, in a taxi, or wherever you may roam … and tag #ONC30day
On May, 22nd O&N will choose (3) Instagram winners that had their favorite, most creative bkr photo to WIN a second bkr FREE!!

What’s better than one bkr, two!

What’s To Love About bkr

Born from a belief that green products should be creative, effortless and cool, bkr drew on their love of modern art and minimalism to create a bottle that you’ll want to carry. bkr is a statement against a disposable world, transporting water between continents, and against the chemicals we ingest from plastics when we base our decisions on convenience. Hydration is key for joint, muscle, and skin health. Pure, fresh water boosts the immune system, improves mood and energy levels and keeps you looking your sexy best. 

• food grade polypropylene cap + silicone gasket (top cap comes with handle for easy transport/handling)
• FDA approved, BPA-free, phthalate free
• small one-inch opening for no-spill sipping
• fits most cup holders – 3.18 inches wide, 7.88 inches tall
• doesn’t leak, lightweight
• 100% reusable + recyclable 

Individual action not only promotes optimal wellness for the body but for the planet as well! 

Interested in learning more about the benefits of reducing plastic and the affect’s on the body? Here’s more food for thought.

  • Water makes up more than two-thirds of the weight of the human body, staying hydrated is important for a few reasons. Water lubricates and cushions your joints, protects your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues, and transports wastes from your body through perspiration, urination, and bowel movements. Being hydrated helps with memory and cognition; it also helps to improve your mood and immune function. Too, pure fresh water is your skin’s best friend. Our skin craves hydration and moisture – it’s not only a vehicle for cell renewal but also keeps skin looking fresh, balanced and young. It’s the ultimate age defying nutrient.  
  • In the US alone, less than 10% of plastic is recycled
  • Scientist and researchers are saying we are entering the age of Plastic Pollution or Plastic World
  • The world consumes 200+ billion single serve water bottles per year
  • Over 80% of these bottles end up in landfills each year
  • 17 million barrels of oil are used in producing bottled water each year
  • Per NRDF (National Resources Defense Council) around 80% of marine litter originates on land, and majority of this is plastic.
  • Not only are marine life ingesting and dying from plastic consumption via their habitat, scientists are further investigating the long-term impact of toxic pollutants absorbed, transported and consumed by fish and other marine life, including the potential effects on human health.
  • BPA, or bisphenol A, is a toxic compound used in plastics since 1960’s and can be found inside most water bottles
  • BPA, and other toxic chemicals found in plastic, have the ability to “leech” into water and has been linked to many health concerns, one being its ability to mimic estrogen in the body and changes to both men & women’s hormone levels
  • Research and the scientific community are concerned that BPA-Free plastics still have ingredient compounds that could be linked to other serious health concerns and that BPA-Free is NOT totally safe

So join in and make this season, one of new beginnings. Your body, mind, skin and planet with thank you. ~ Liv Well xoxo
