Successful Donation Campaign Ends, Filters For Flint
A little over a month ago we started a Buy One, Give One campaign where we pledged to donate a water filter for every filter purchased, to a family in Flint, Michigan. We did this to be part of the solution in Flint, helping people impacted by the lead crisis. All of Aquasana’s drinking water filters are certified by NSF to remove lead from drinking water.
Aquasana filters come in many different options delivering professional grade water filtration without the need for professional installation. Like millions of people nationwide, we were saddened and upset when we learned people in Flint were drinking unsafe water. Lead has no taste or smell, and is a neurotoxin. Lead poisoning can cause severe mental and physical impairment, and young children are most vulnerable to lead poisoning. As a father myself, I knew we had to do something to help. We wanted to give our customers a way to be a part of the solution too, and they were so quick to join our mission. One customer purchased and donated 10 filters.
Our partner, Good 360, identified local charities and is helping facilitate delivery.
We donated our most versatile system: the Powered Water Filtration System. It requires no plumbing and can be used anywhere – simply plug it in, fill it and go for professional grade NSF certified filtration anywhere. The filters are some of the longest lasting on the market, When the filter needs replacing, an indicator light will blink, letting the user know it’s time to change the filter – keeping the water safe while you use the system.
This is the first time we have embarked on a campaign like this and although we hope there is never a need again, we are proud to have played a role in giving families a basic right: clean water.
