Since water is such a vital component of our lives, it's important to know exactly what we are drinking.

Many of us know the health benefits of drinking water, but getting children to drink more water can sometimes be the tricky part for parents. I don't recall getting very fired up about a glass of water when I was a child. I wanted juice boxes and orange soda. So how can a parent get kids excited about water?
Knowing where your food, water, and clothes come from can be both an enlightening and an empowering realization. In a time where brands and products make claims to certain authenticities, ethics, or health benefits, wouldn't it be nice to be able to just show up at the farm and see if those free-range chickens are really ranging free?
