With all that is going on with water supplies these days, it makes me wonder what is really in our water. Do we have clean water? Thankfully, I found something that cleans my water from a company I know and trust.
Chemicals that can be harmful to your health can actually turn up in the water your family drinks. Heavy metals, industrial pollutants, pesticides—these harmful contaminants can enter our water supplies and have the potential to create long-term health challenges. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the water we drink is responsible for up to 20% of lead exposure in humans. And an EPA report demonstrates that at least 13% of the nation’s water treatment systems have violated the Safe Drinking Water Act in each of the past five years.
Get Clean® Water
Get Clean Water is a revolutionary new water-filtration pitcher system certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) to reduce up to 99% of lead¹, as well as dozens of other nasty contaminants that can turn up in your water and may be harmful to your health.
Multipatented Get Clean Water uses a solid block of carbon to filter and clean your water. Each Get Clean Water filter handles 80 gallons of water, twice as much as Brita® and PUR®², and each filter is made from sustainable coconut shell carbon using a zero- emission process. Plus, it’s the first pitcher with a refillable carbon-block filter system, so there’s less waste going to the landfills.
Cleaner, healthier water and a cleaner, healthier planet? We can all drink to that!
