Air pollution is a huge concern for human health, ranking as the fifth highest risk factor globally.
Chemical products that contain compounds refined from petroleum, like household cleaners, pesticides, paints and perfumes, now rival motor vehicle emissions as the top source of urban air pollution, according to a surprising National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) led study.
Unable to escape the chemicals we emit into our atmosphere, these toxic cleaners contribute to the development of a wide range of respiratory and other diseases.
The prevention of chemical emissions and risk to human health can only be ended by replacing harmful atmospheric polluters with safe, sustainable alternatives - eWater being one of these.
eWater is not just a cleaning solution but also effective and safe to use on fresh food as a sanitiser and antimicrobial. It can even extend the shelf life of fruit and vegetables! Here is how eWater works compared to some of its competitors...
eWater is also completely safe to dispose of for the environment than the chemical alternatives offered by other companies. Utilising only salt, tap water and electricity it has no adverse health effects for people who use or consume it.
The onsite production of eWater also avoids unnecessary plastic waste and removes users from a costly, high emissions chemical supply chain.
eWater is fast becoming best practice in hygiene for food production.
A recent outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes (listeria), connected to rockmelon originating from a farm in NSW, has shown that there is a need for more effective treatment of bacteria on fruit and vegetables.
Listeriosis is of grave concern to the community and can be fatal, particularly to the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.
Electrolysed water has been demonstrated to be not only an effective sanitiser, particularly in regards to listeria, but its efficacy over other commercial sanitisers. eWater Systems has published a special report on the matter.
The Victorian Government is looking for community input on the reduction of plastic pollution. With these initatives also comes the opportunity for Victoria to lead in reducing our chemical footprint.
eWater proposed that the government make the reduction of chemicals a priority. This in turn will reduce plastic, pollution and carbon impacts. Using the technology of eWater Systems, there is no longer need for harmful chemicals for cleaning and sanitising. We hope to show policy makers that there is a more sustainable way to clean up our planet.
Proprietors Steve & Vonnie Frazer are delighted to be part of the #reducechemicals movement. "To be honest, we were a bit skeptical when introduced to eWater but it has been a great success" says Mr Frazer. "We are so happy to be rid of toxic chemicals and detergents along with their subsequent pollutants and negative health impacts. Our staff love it!"
Coca-Cola produces over 110 billion single-use plastic bottles a year, the equivalent of over 3,400 bottles per second. As one of the world’s biggest brands, Coke has the power to make a real change to the health of our oceans.
These defects not only afflicted the children of the exposed animals, but had transgenerational effects, defects which persist through subsequent generations which were never exposed to the chemicals...
This October John and Pauline Gandel will open their 135 hectare Point Leo Estate on the Mornington Peninsular up to the public, the couple have created a legacy project of the estate as a tribute to their love for the region.
Acclaimed Australian Author Tim Winton slammed Malcolm Turnbull and the Federal Government in a recent opinion piece in The Age, stating quite plainly that our Government has failed us when it comes to the conservation of our seas.
“The potential adverse effects of exposure to disinfectants on COPD have received much less attention, although two recent studies in European populations showed that working as a cleaner was associated with a higher risk of COPD"
“Our findings provide further evidence of the effects of exposure to disinfectants on respiratory problems, and highlight the urgency of integrating occupational health considerations into guidelines for cleaning and disinfection in healthcare settings such as hospitals”
The Queensland Government has finally rallied against plastic pollution and its potential harm to the environment. Single use plastic bags will now be banned, and a new 10c container deposit scheme will be put forth from July 2018 onwards.
One of our favourites, the supremely talented Shaun Presland, returns as Group Executive Chef at Sake Group. Presland was a member of the launch team of the first Saké Restaurant & Bar in The Rocks in 2008
This paper recently released in the Journal of Aquatic Research and Development reports on the efficacy of electrolysed water for inactivating microbes on aquatic products and particularly on extending the shelf life of fish, including shell fish.
