The water from your tap may look clean, but exactly how safe is it?

Relax. Cleaner, healthier water is just a pitcher away.

A fresh take on healthier water, Get Clean Water is a new multi-patented water filtration system. Unlike other water pitchers, Get Clean Water uses a solid block of carbon to clean your water, reducing some pretty nasty contaminants—including up to 99 percent of lead.

Get Clean Water is the first pitcher to use a refillable carbon-block filter system so there's less plastic to throw away. And it filters 80 gallons of water per filter—twice as much as Brita® and PUR®.

Cleaner, healthier water and a cleaner, healthier planet?

We can all drink to that!

  • THE REAL DIRT ON CLEAN WATER 1
  • THE REAL DIRT ON CLEAN WATER FACT An Environmental Working Group study found a total of more than 300 agricultural and industrial pollutants in the tap water of 45 states; more than half of those pollutants have no drinking-water safety standards* FACT Up to 20% of lead exposure comes from drinking water** FACT According to EPA, public water utilities have violated the Safe Drinking Water Act more than 700,000 times in the past seven years*** Source: *ewg.org/tap-water/executive-summary; **EPA.gov/ogwdw000/hfacts.html; *** FACTOIDS: Drinking Water and Ground Water Statistics for 2009 (EPA 2009) 2
  • WHAT’S IN YOUR WATER? Disinfection By-products: Long-term exposure may cause increased risk of cancer, as well as liver, kidney, or central nervous system problems* Heavy Metals: Even at low levels, long-term exposure may cause behavioral problems and learning disabilities* Agricultural Pollutants: Long-term exposure may cause increased risk of cancer, as well as eye, liver, kidney, spleen, blood, and nervous system problems* Industrial Pollutants: Long-term exposure may cause increased risk of cancer, as well as blood, nervous system, kidney, and liver problems* Source: *epa.gov/safewater 3
  • DISINFECTION BY-PRODUCTS Disinfection by-products detected in tap water include: • trihalomethanes • chloroform • bromodicholoromethane • dibromochloromethane Public drinking-water disinfection • bromoform by water utilities is crucial for Long-term exposure may cause liver, kidney, or controlling waterborne disease, central nervous system problems and can increase but the chemicals used can form cancer risk* by-products in our treated water that increase the risk of cancer.* Source: *www.epa.gov/safewater 4
  • HEAVY METALS Lead: In infants and children, long-term lead exposure may cause reduced IQ, learning disabilities, and impaired growth* In adults, long-term lead exposure may cause kidney problems, nerve disorders, and high blood pressure* Lead exposure: Up to 20% comes from drinking water Source: *epa.gov/lead/pubs/leadinfo.htm 5
  • AGRICULTURAL POLLUTANTS Atrazine: • Outlawed in Europe • 70 million pounds applied in the U.S. per year* • Long term-exposure may cause cardiovascular and reproductive problems** One of the most frequently detected pesticides in ground water, surface water, and drinking water* Source: *The Quality of Our Nation’s Water, USGS Circular 1225; EPA atrazine science re-evaluation: potential health impacts (2009); **epa.gov/safewater 6
  • INDUSTRIAL POLLUTANTS Benzene: Long-term exposure may cause anemia, decreased blood platelets, and increased risk of cancer** Up to 6 million pounds of benzene released into the U.S. every year* Source: *Report on carcinogens, 11th ed.

  • BOTTLED WATER ISN’T THE ANSWER Bad Choice for Your Wallet • Bottled water is 100s to 1,000s X more expensive than tap water Bad Choice for the Environment • 1.5 million barrels of oil are used in the production of bottled water each year**—enough to fuel 50,000 cars for one year • 1,640,000 tons of packaging waste come from bottled water*** • Only 34% of water bottles are recycled*** Bottled water may not be contaminant free. the Environmental Working Group found 10 popular brands had a total of 38 contaminants* Source: *EWG bottled Water Quality investigation (2008); **The U.S. Conference of Mayors, 2007; ***IBWA – International Bottled Water Association, 2007 8
