Seal Genie startup promotes water conservation message with new product via crowd funding and contests Solves 300+ year old problem while raising awareness of world water issues
LITTLETON, Colo., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Genie, LLC launches their unique Seal Genie™ garden hose washer via crowd funding site IndieGoGo to answer the question:
"How do you keep your garden hose connections from leaking all over the place?" With U.S. and Worldwide patents pending, the Seal Genie™ may be the world's most advanced garden hose washer ever created.
Seal Genie, LLC believes the combination of advanced design and materials accomplishes what others thus far have failed to do: provide a long lasting solution that really works. The Seal Genie™ is designed to last for years and not leak- saving consumers' water, money and energy while reducing pollution through wasted resources.* They also want to become the new world standard for hose washers, which covers more than just garden hoses. Washing machines, RV and marine water hookups and many others all use the same basic washer size.
The Seal Genie™ is currently entered in Wal-Mart's "Get on the Shelf" contest as well as Martha Stewarts "American Made" competition. "The sooner consumers find out they don't have to put up with wasteful, leaking hose connections the better," said Ralph Machesky, CEO/President of Seal Genie, LLC. And for good reason-
- The average U.S. family of four wastes over 10,000 gallons a water a year through leaks- enough to fill a swimming pool.*
- While 70% of the Earth's surface is covered in water, only about 1% of that is fit for human consumption.**
The data points above rang alarm bells for the company as their product depends on water, as does all life.
After discovering the non-profit organization charity: water, they also learned that over 800 million people do not even have clean water to drink. *** "People may know that water is important, but simply do not fathom the scale and impact. Our lives are all dependent on water and our product is going to help reduce the needless waste of water, energy and resources," said Machesky.
In fact, 5% of the company net profits (after taxes) will be donated to the charity: water cause. There are working solutions available right now, that can both save water and help bring clean safe water to those that need it.
"We encourage others to join us and design their products from the very start with the future of the Earth and its resources as the top design priority," said Machesky.
The fact that they can solve problems and make money while doing good- should be the ultimate goal for all of us.
