When you’re planning an intense travel schedule, it’s easy to get lost in postcard-worthy visions of isolated tropical beaches, sunsets over unfamiliar skylines, and the myriad of incredible locations you’re likely to encounter.  

What’s more difficult, is to remember the seemingly mundane necessities that guarantee your trip will be memorable, enjoyable, and most importantly, safe!  You’re going to be packing clothes appropriate for the time of year. You’ve got your transportation and event tickets booked. But have you thought about your water?

Depending on where you’re traveling, obtaining clean water may be the most critical issue you’ve never even considered!  Destinations like Thailand, India, Africa, and Mexico are filled with rich cultural experiences and undeniably beautiful vistas. But depending on how far you plan to explore, you may find yourself away from the sources of clean water that you’ve come to take for granted.  Ignoring these concerns about water quality could be devastating to your trip!

Is bottled water better than tap water?

Drinking bottled water may not be a fool-proof solution for ensuring safety. In India, hired workers will salvage used plastic bottles from trash cans and public areas such as railway stations to refill with local tap water. They seal these bottles with a new cap and label to sell back to the public as new. People buy this so-called purified water not knowing the reality. A single sip of such contaminated water could leave you with a host of debilitating ailments. – from a mild case of traveler’s diarrhea to something more serious like cholera, dysentery, or salmonella.

In South Africa, fake bottled water was being produced in actual factories. Instead of filling bottles with purified water, they were filled with fire hydrant water, hoping no one tells the difference. With a fancy logo on a crisp label, it’s hard not to fall for this scam.

One of the major causes of water contamination in developing countries is simply the lack of proper infrastructure for water management. For example, in Nigeria, as of November 2018, 175 people died and 10,000 people affected by fast-spreading Cholera due to contaminated food and water.

Even in the United States, it is reported that several groundwater sources are contaminated with e.coli affecting more than 2 million people due to pollution from wastewater systems and agriculture.

Pope Francis stated in a recent water management conference in Rome that access to clean drinking water is a human right. He also mentioned that every year millions of people get sick and die from the limited supply or lack of clean water. He believes war, corruption, and financial interests are primary reasons for not providing universal access to the clean water.

Unpredicted weather conditions like hurricanes, storms, earthquakes, and tsunamis can also cause water contamination.

Whatever circumstances you may be facing on your next trip abroad, access to clean drinking water may no longer be a concern to you. The solution may be right in your water bottle!
