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.

At Filtersfast.com, we believe in making a difference in the environment and for the people around the world. As partners with the W3 Project, we are implementing our corporate social responsibility to reach those around the world in need of clean drinking water, while bringing awareness to the obesity problem we face in the United States.

World Water Day Kickoff with Indian Trail Elementary School

Today we are celebrating World Water Day. World Water Day is an internationally recognized day that is held annually on March 22 as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. Recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), the first World Water Day was designated on March 22, 1993. Each year this day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater.

In recognition of World Water Day, FiltersFast.com, Filters Fast Local Service and the W3 Project is teaming with Indian Trail Elementary School in Indian Trail, North Carolina for a month-long celebration of walking for water. Beginning today and ending on April 22, 2012 which is Earth Day, the 800 member student body at Indian Trail Elementary School is challenged to walk as many miles as they can in this 1-month time-frame and donate the miles they run or walk to the W3 Project. The W3 Project is a partnership that includes FiltersFast.com, TrekDesk and Wine To Water. Together, the W3 partners are building a community of people who walk in pursuit of health and wellness for everyone. By raising awareness about health and the global water crisis, W3 is giving everyone the ability to either “Donate” or “Sponsor” miles in which 100% of all proceeds go to Wine To Water.

This video was especially produced to educate and increase the awareness about the global water crisis for elementary and middle schools, which is used as a template for other schools who want to implement the same type of event at their school. 3M Filtrete, a leader in home filtration systems is sponsoring up to 3,000 miles of the total miles that the students walk at Indian Trail Elementary for their month long initiative. Thank you 3M Filtrete for becoming an important sponsor for Indian Trail Elementary School that will certainly help the school, community and deliver the message about the importance of filtration while helping others in the United States and abroad obtain access to clean drinking water.
