Making a Difference – Donate Miles for Clean Water

At Filtersfast.com our employees are making a statement about our corporate social responsibility for the environment and for the people around the world without access to clean drinking water. As partners of The W3 Project with Wine To Water and TrekDesk, the departments in Filtersfast.com are walking for a cause. We are walking to build a community of humanitarians who walk in the pursuit of health and wellness for everyone with two crucial reasons in mind:

1.)    To help provide clean drinking water to those without access to it through our partnership with Wine To Water

2.)    To raise awareness about the small steps we can take to help decrease the obesity problem in our country through our partnership with TrekDesk Treadmill Desks

We are accomplishing these goals throughout our various departments. Many office personnel are walking daily on their TrekDesk Treadmill Desks while compiling miles to donate to The W3 Project. Members within the Warehouse Department are using pedometers to track and donate the miles they walk each day, while carrying out their daily job responsibilities.

We are also collecting aluminum cans to redeem and donate that money to The W3 Project. This donation will be used to help bring clean drinking water to those who do not have access to it. 

If you would like to support The W3 Project, visit www.filtersfast.com/w3 and select “Donate Miles” or “Sponsor Miles.” You can also connect with The W3 Project via Twitter and Facebook.

Protect Your Pet: Filter Their Water

July is National Doghouse Repairs Month and with the increase of extreme temperatures,the doghouse can provide much needed shelter from the scorching heat. As the temperature rises, so does the need for easily accessible water for you and your pet. Ask yourself these questions: does your dog or cat have easy access to water? Is it clean water? The importance of keeping water easily accessible especially during the summer months is important. However, giving water to your pet that is contaminated will do more harm than good for your dog or cat. Recent studies indicate that good quality water is beneficial for your pet especially for strengthening their immune systems. The hydration of internal organs will also keep your pet’s organs functioning properly and efficiently. Need more proof that water quality is extremely important for your pet? Look no further than this story from Heather Quinn, a proud cat owner who recently discovered startling news regarding her cat.

“My cat was very sick…and I ended up taking him to the vet. $700 later, we learned that he had a UTI and crystals built up in his bladder.  He had to undergo surgery to remove them.  The vet asked if we had changed his food type or water source recently and I had originally said no. He immediately suspected that the water caused it.  The vet recommends filtering your pets’ water because the minerals and chemicals found in well/tap water can create imbalance in the pet and cause these crystals to form in the bladder. The crystals block urine passage and cause kidney failure.”

As unsettling as that story may be, there are ways you can provide clean, safe drinking water for your pet. The DogIt Design Fresh and Clear Pet Drinking Fountain provides a steady supply of fresh and clean drinking water for your dog, by re-circulating water flow. This outdoor drinking fountain has multi-stage filtration that eliminates stale water by trapping the impurities. The elevated large surface area makes it useful for dogs that are larger, older or suffering from physical ailments. The correct replacement filter is the Dogit Design Fountain Filter Cartridges.

The CatIt Design Fresh and Clear Pet Drinking Fountain is made especially for your cat and provides a constant supply of fresh and clean water. This pet drinking fountain features an elevated design and utilizes multi-stage filtration for reducing impurities in water. The large surface area of this fountain results in higher oxygenation and the re-circulation flow ensures your cat will not receive stale and stagnant water.

Remember, your pet can share the same health benefits that you and I enjoy from drinking filtered water. Don’t deprive your pet of this essential resource.
