December 2015


A word from Richard

Hello everyone.

Wow Summer is here…. and School is out!!! So it is Officially ‘Silly Season’… With Schoolies running here and there all having crazy fun times we wish them all a fun but safe time during this party season and an energetically revived safe return to 2016 for the start of a new and exciting chapter in their lives.

Yep Mum’s and Dad’s everywhere are feeling the stress and hoping like mad that they all return safe too. It’s round about the same time many kids are getting their driver’s license and disappearing out onto the roads to God only knows where and causing us all sorts of anxiety attacks for parents!

Well there are only 3 working weeks left before we break for a well earnt two week holiday. Have you booked your staff Christmas function in yet? Restaurants are nearly all full. We’re spoiling our team this year with a delightful lunch at our favourite Chinese Cuisine Restaurant ‘Old Cathay’ on Thursday 17th December. You should check it out too www.oldcathay.com.au it’s just sensational.

Then at 4.30pm on Friday 18th December we close the office for a well-deserved holiday to break for Christmas and the New Year and we will re-open at 8.30am on Monday 4th January 2016. We will check phone messages every other day and do our best to address those calls but emails can more easily be attended to so if necessary please email any requests. Remember please… We Are On Holidays!!!

Due to the fall in the Australian Dollar and that most of our stock is USA Designed and Made we have been monitoring and absorbing the small price rises into our costs but are now forced to raise our prices after, wow, about 6-7 years. This price rise is yet to be determined but will become effective as of the New Year so if you’d like to pre-book and pre-pay for your 2016 service before the 18th December 2015 we will lock that in for you.

This will also be our last Newsletter for 2015. We will be back again in 2016 on the first Tuesday of February 2016. So again Thank-You, for all your continued support and we look forward to trying to catch up with you all over the New Year.

We Wish you a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year; And don’t forget; You either use a water filter or your body is one!!! Keep hydrated. Cheers Cheers.

Water in a carton

Environmentally friendly

If you are anything like us, you are concerned with what goes into your own and your families’ bodies. We believe people should have a choice if they need to buy water and want an alternative to plastic water bottles.

We grew up in the beautiful surroundings of Perth and the southwest of WA, enjoying its pristine beaches, crisp air and blue skies. Unfortunately pollution has created many changes in this stunning natural environment over our lifetimes, and it has become increasingly important to us to try and do our bit to reverse this trend.

At Carton & Co, we believe that in an ideal world, no one would need to buy packaged water. However, in our busy lives, some days we can barely manage to get out of the house with our shirts on the right way out, never mind find and fill up everyone’s water bottles. As plenty of water is a daily essential for our own and our families’ health, sometimes we just need to buy it.

Having come across a similar water while travelling, we felt it was a great, more sustainable product that Australia just had to have, so with family and friends we founded Carton & Co.

Carton & Co has given us a genuine opportunity to give back to our community and the environment: starting a local business to give ourselves and others work-life balance, and reducing plastic bottle waste as much as we can by providing an ecofriendly, biodegradable alternative.

It’s just one small step towards a more sustainable future. And our hope is that, as we grow, we’ll be able to help other sustainability and community projects grow with us.

Water facts

Boiling point of water.

While most people know that water boils at 100 °C (212 °F), this is at the normal conditions of sea level. The boiling point of water actually changes relative to the barometric pressure. For example, water boils at just 68 °C (154 °F) on the top of Mount Everest while water deep in the ocean near geothermal vents can remain in liquid form at temperatures much higher than 100 °C (212 °F).

Health Tip

To drink or not to drink?

Drinking during and after a meal safely, is dependent on the temperature of the drink.

Your stomach is not just a sack of skin where all the food is mixed and sent down the gut, it is well designed and very "clever". It has special creases or folds from the top where food comes in from the gullet (oesophagus) to the bottom of the stomach where it opens further down (into the duodenum). When you drink it runs down these creases and out of the stomach, often without touching food and without mixing with stomach juices at all. That's why it doesn't matter when you drink - before, after or during the meal, unless, of course you drink a Litre or two at a time. But the temperature of the drink can make a difference.

In 1969, a well known scientist and Radiologist professor V.D. Lindenbraten was doing some research involving stomach and gut Radiology. He was trying to retain contrasting substances in the stomach of the patient long enough to have sufficient time for a full x-ray investigation. Professor Lindenbraten. found that a contrast substance (chalky porridge-like drink) when given cold from the fridge would leave the stomach more quickly, than the time needed to tune-up the X-ray machine, not leaving any time for X-rays to be taken. However, if the contrast was warmed up before it was given to the patient, there was enough time to tune everything up and do a full X-ray investigation.

The results have shown, that drinking cold drinks like water or Soft drinks and even beer after the meal shortens the time that food stays in the stomach from 4-5 hours to 20 minutes. Basically, when you have a cold drink - the food you have just eaten is "pushed out" of the stomach. Ice-cream too acts on your digestion in a similar way.

There are two problems with this: first of all, you put on weight more quickly, because there is not enough time for proper digestion, therefore you get NO good nutrients, however, simple sugars and fats don't need much time to be digested, so you get those and nothing else. You will feel hungry almost immediately, because your body still needs the nutrients you are missing. The second problem is that when food is not digested properly in the stomach, it will literally rot in the gut, producing various poisons causing bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, skin conditions and other health problems.

Drinks should be at least room temperature and when you drink after a meal, please warm it up to at least 37 degrees Celsius, normal body temperature.

Customer testimonial

Shawn Martino

I want to thank you for the great service I received when I ordered an under the sink water filter. The ordering over the phone was smooth and very efficient, and within a few days I had a new incredibly needed water filter and wonderfully stylish fountain spout

The plumber who installed the water filter did a magnificent job. The filter was well fitted in an out of the way position and the area was left clean and tidy after fitting. A very professional job!

Now drinking the sparkling clean filtered water feels a lot HEALTHIER than before and is so much EASIER to do than using a water filter jug.

I'll definitely be recommending "The Water Filter Man" to anyone who is in the market for a professional water filter installation.

Tapping, W.A.

A closing thought


“Without knowledge of the past we shall lose the future”

We all make mistakes. It’s a fact. What isn’t a fact is that everyone learns from their mistakes. Yet we must. In order to facilitate a prosperous future, we must keep our mistakes in the back of our mind to remind us that we have already been down these paths and it is time to try a different one.
