When you come back home on a drenched summer afternoon what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you enter your home or your workplace? Isn’t it a cold glass of water?
Drinking refrigerated cold water can cause sunstroke. Also, storing water in plastic containers or bottles is harmful because plastic contains harmful substances such as arsenic, aluminium that is hazardous to the body. Not only this, it affects our immune system too!
But everything in this busy world has alternatives. When the smart technological world doesn’t work, it is always clever to switch back to our traditional methods. One such traditional method used since ancient India for storing drinking water is the use of earthen pots.
Earthenware is completely free of these harmful chemicals and is very organic. These days if you are habitual to drinking water from bottles, then even earthen bottles are available in the market.
Basic Principle of Earthenware
The material used for the earthenware is clay which is porous. When water is added, some of it seeps quickly through the porous walls of the vessel. The water on the outside walls needs to be evaporated for which it requires latent heat of evaporation. This is done by absorbing the heat from the inside of the earthenware thus lowering the temperature of the water on the insides.
Major Benefits of Drinking Water from Earthenware
1. Refrigeration without Paying Bills
Your old refrigerator might have sucked up electricity, but that isn’t the case for earthen pots, bottles and filters. It is a completely economical process. It only requires one-time purchasing and later you do not have to worry about your electricity bills.
Just like the refrigerator, the water from an earthenware is cool enough to quench your thirst. Water once stored in earthenware pots and bottles stays cool throughout the day.
2. Quick Decomposing
If you use a plastic bottle it takes almost 450 years to decompose thus degrading the environment. As the material of the earthenware is completely organic, once decomposed it mixes up with the earthly elements. This method is hence proved eco-friendly.
3. Natural and Healthy
Our regular plastic bottles contain BPA (Bisphenol A) which is very hazardous for our health. Also, drinking a particular amount of water per day increases the metabolism of the body and also testosterone levels. Both the above-desired needs are fulfilled by using earthenware.
Another interesting thing about earthenware is that it is made up of clay which is alkaline in nature. This maintains the pH level of the body if the water is acidic.
Keeping in mind the above benefits of storing water in earthenware, it is also truly authentic and soothing to drink the cool water from an earthen pot or a bottle with the slight earthen flavour of the natural ingredients and the soil.
Mitti Cool – ‘Soul of the Soil’ as the name goes offers a wide range of earthenware products like Pots (Matka), bottles, filters and even refrigerator to restore back the culture. Going with the tradition, you can always replace your refrigerator with genuine Mitti Cool earthenware, also available in simple and also various beautiful and attractive designs.
