ZeroWater is continuing efforts to provide clean water relief to the community of Flint, Michigan with the announcement of “Filters for Flint”, a one for one matching program in conjunction with United Way. Both ZeroWater and United Way understand that this is an ongoing problem and the demand for continuous disbursement of certified filters for lead reduction is crucial during this time.
“We believe we can help with the ongoing effort by providing more of our filters to the Flint community as quickly as possible”, stated Doug Kellam, CEO of ZeroWater. “We are encouraging any and all to donate, the more we can give the better. In particular, I hope our loyal customers will donate, as they understand the value of the NSF certification for lead reduction in an easy to use filter pitcher”
ZeroWater will match all product contributions (One for One) ordered on behalf of Flint, and are encouraging donations from individuals as well as organizations and corporations committed to helping a community in need. All products will be shipped by ZeroWater to United Way of Genesee County, who will in turn distribute them through officially established outlets to the community.
“This lead issue could go on for some time” says Jamie Gaskin of The United Way of Genesee County. “We are thankful for all the help that ZeroWater has and can provide. It truly makes a difference in working through this awful crisis”.
Being the only pour-through filtration pitcher that is certified by NSF for lead reduction, the company is committed to the immediate and ongoing support of the Flint community. Since the Flint lead concern became public, ZeroWater has been helping to distribute filters into the community, particularly the children who are most susceptible to high lead levels, through the United Way and key retailers.
