National Wear Red Day: Have A Heart

Heart disease is the number one killer of women. To raise awareness for this concern, the American Heart Association along with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute created National Wear Red Day. Every year on the first Friday in February, millions of women and men wear red to symbolize their commitance to fight this deadly disease.

One proven way to reduce the risk of heart disease is to drink more water. A six-year study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology found that those who drank more than five glasses of water a day were less likely to die from a heart attack than those who drank less than two glasses per day. The study conclusively proved that water plays a vital part in your heart health.

At, we take heart health seriously. With so much at stake, it is important to have access to clean water at all times. The following items will ensure that clean water is always within reach.

The Clear2GO Filtered Vanity Bottle provides you with heart healthy water by reducing 99.9% of waterborne contaminants and easily opens at the touch of a button. This filtered vanity bottle also includes a travel loop for on-the-go convenience, making it great to carry along during physical activities such as hiking and jogging.

The Katadyn Red Splash MyBottle is reliable, easy to operate and reduces unpleasant odors. Specially built for the outdoors, this water bottle gives you the benefit of having filtered water wherever you are. The Katadyn MyBottle meets the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for the removal of bacteria and other waterborne contaminants.

The Brita Grand Water Pitcher has a capacity to carry up to 10 cups of water. By reducing copper, chlorine and odor, you will have better tasting water in the comfort of your home. This Brita pitcher features a soft-grip handle for comfort and an electronic filter indicator for added convenience.

Water, in addition to regular physical activity, plays an important role in heart health. Be sure to be active whenever possible to reduce risks of heart disease in your own life. As part of our social responsibility, employees have chosen to wear red to symbolize our commitment to fight heart disease. We stand by anyone who has fought this battle and encourage everyone to take the steps necessary to reduce the risk of heart disease in your own life.
