BENSALEM, Pa., April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With almost $200,000 in filter donations to the community of Flint, ZeroWater is now expanding the Filters for Flint program in an effort to help the growing list of communities with lead issues expanding beyond Flint. With the expansion, ZeroWater will continue it's one for one donation match and is also pledging an additional $50,000 worth of filters to continue the efforts in Flint while offering additional assistance to schools and communities nationwide. To kick it off, ZeroWater is currently working with Hip-Hop 4 Flint in collaboration with the City of Newark to get hundreds of 23C devices to the schools being affected by lead contamination.
The company is also expanding resources available to encourage lead testing and lead awareness. Detailed resources on how and where people can get water tested properly for lead contamination is available at www.zerowater.com. In addition, ZeroWater will provide free water tests to the first 1,000 schools in need of lead testing assistance as well as access to inexpensive testing sources for anyone else. ZeroWater wants to provide assistance to ensure that no one is unaware of lead issues in their own backyard. The company encourages everyone to test their drinking water for lead, particularly where children are present.
For testing resources, or to make a donation, please visit www.zerowater.com. ZeroWater encourages participation in the Filters for Flint and Kids Everywhere program as well as getting your water tested immediately. Additionally, if your school is in need of testing or has tested positive for lead, please email ZeroWater at email@example.com. For more information or to set up an interview with ZeroWater executives, please contact Dawn Ryden at 512-294-6218 or Dawn@3DMKG.com.
The ZeroWater filtration system that is built into each pitcher is the only pour through pitcher that is certified by the NSF to reduce lead to a safe level. The filters remove 99.6% of all total dissolved solids based on EPA certified lab tests. That equates to a 000 measurement on a digital water meter, equivalent to purified water. ZeroWater is the only water filtration system to receive NSF endorsement for its reduction capabilities in chromium-3, chromium-6 and lead.
