The Real Dirt on Clean Water
Turn on your faucet. Notice anything about your water? It may look clean, but exactly how safe is it? The truth is, 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. 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.
The good news is that cleaner, healthier water is just a pitcher away!
My drink of choice is water. I love the taste of Get Clean Water. It tastes so much better than our well water and my Mom-in-law’s city water. When we go on vacation we take a pitcher along so we will always have good, clean water to drink.

A fresh take on healthier water
Get Clean Water is a revolutionary new multi-patented water filtration pitcher system. Unlike other water pitchers, Get Clean Water uses a solid block of carbon to clean your water, reducing dozens of pretty nasty contaminants that can turn up in your water and may be harmful to your health. Also, Get Clean Water is certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) to reduce up to 99% of lead.1
Get Clean Water is the first pitcher to use a refillable carbon-block filter system so there’s less plastic to throw away which means less waste going to the landfills. And it filters 80 gallons of water per filter— twice as much as Brita® and PUR® pitcher filters.2 Each filter is made from sustainable coconut shell carbon using a zeroemission process.
Cleaner, healthier water and a cleaner, healthier planet? We can all drink to that!
Did You Know?

✔ According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, public water utilities have violated the Safe Drinking Water Act more than 700,000times in the past seven years.**
✔ Unlike public water utilities, the bottled water industry is not required to publicly disclose the results of any contaminant testing it conducts.
✔ Bottled water may not be contaminant free. The EWG found a total of 38 contaminants in the water of 10 popular brands.***
✔ In 2007, 8.8 billion gallons of bottled water were consumed in the US.****
✔ In 2007, 1.64 million tons of bottled water packaging materials were produced in the U.S.; only 34% of those materials were recycled.****
✔ According to the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ resolution, it takes 1.5 million barrels of oil every year to facilitate the production of water bottles made for use in the U.S. That’s enough oil to power 50,000 cars for a year.
