Happy National Water Quality Month!

Do you know what is in your drinking water? If not, find out. Go to your local municipality website and check the water quality reports. One way to know you have safe and clean drinking water year round, is with an EcoloBlue Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG). Water generated from the air, then filtered, and easily accessible at any time. No need to worry about your water supply in the event of a natural disaster, your EcoloBlue AWG can run off solar, wind, or gas generator power as well. Learn more HERE.

 

Are you aware that August is Water Quality Month? August is the time of year when many people are enjoying the last bits of summer recreational activities involving water. But these bodies of water are threatened by increasing water pollution. The Clean Water Act was passed in 1972 but most people are unaware of the little ways they can pollute their water. Water sustains all life and entire ecosystems depend on it for their survival. Water Quality Month reminds us to take a long, hard look at what your household and community are doing to protect sources of fresh water.

The History of Water Quality Month
The United Nations has declared 2005-2015 an International Decade for Action “Water for Life” in order to emphasize the importance of water quality as it relates to sanitation, human rights, geography, urbanization and sustainability. Emphasizing how interlinked water systems are, the Audobon Society points to the dangers of runoff from agriculture, forestry, construction and people’s personal yards:”Each individual household may not produce enough pollution to force a beach closing or cause a fish kill, but the combined output of all the homes in a community can be severe. And, consider that about half of the U.S. population lives within 50 miles of a coastline where runoff flows quickly to the ocean. This is why watershed protection — attention not only to the body of water but the area that drains into it — is important.”

How to Celebrate Water Quality Month
What can individuals and families can do to prevent water pollution from their homes especially during Water Quality Month? Here’s a short list of things that you can do at home to help: Not using antibacterial soaps or cleaning products. Regular soap and water will do the trick. Much of the antibacterial soaps contain a registered pesticide that is known to harm marine life.
Not flushing unwanted or out-of-date medications down the toilet or drain.
Not putting anything but water down storm drains because they carry water to local waterways.
Fixing leaks that drop from cars and putting liners in driveways to collect oil and other materials.
Avoid using pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
Choose nontoxic household products when possible.
Pick up after pets.
Not paving properties.

If you have a private well make sure it is tested and cleaned regularly. There can be bacteria build up in wells.
Read your local water quality report so you know what the water quality is in your area.

Another option could be to gather a group of family, friends, and neighbors and volunteer to clean a local water source. You could bring a picnic (and some beer for the adults) and hold a contest to see who can clean up the most trash and debris, offering a prize to the winning team. It’s a great way to get everyone together and enjoy an outdoor day full of fun and good-doing!

How Does a Solar Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG) Work?

  • Humidity and temperature diver the EB 30 ME solar atmospheric generator
  • The EB 30ME Solar Kit can generate water based solely on the humidity in the atmosphere with the sun’s light or battery generated backup system
  • Extraction of water from the humidity in the air – 40 percent humidity or greater is needed
  • Harness the power of the sun – can use the battery powered backup
  • The warm air that is full of moisture passes through an electromagnetic air filter and over cooled coils causing condensation
  • The condensation collected is filtered and purified
  • The squeezed water is collected in a tank and treated with UV light to kill any bacteria or viruses along with other contaminants.
  • The UV light inhibits bacteria growth in the reservoir
  • Drinkable pure water is stored in tanks until needed

EcoloBlue’s developers have designed a sleek looking, technologically advanced system that weighs approximately 130 pounds. The water produced ranges from a cold 39°F to as hot as 203°F. The filtered water has an average Ph of 7.0 to 7.5. Additional filtering systems can be purchases to achieve a Ph of 10. Separate tanks store the cooled and hot waters until ready for use.

EcoloBlue Attended Symantec’s Corporate Green Fair – April 20, 2017

It was a beautiful day to have a Green Fair at Symantec’s Corporate Office in Mountain View, Ca. The Fair was intended for the employees to get to browse green and sustainable products. We raffled off 2 items, one being our EB30 Maximum Efficiency model, a value of $1599. This was won by Nyam Chantuu, and I think it’s going to a very good home.

Happy World Water Day 2017

What are you doing today to conserve, protect, or create safe water for people, animals and the environment? Have you tried creating water from the air with EcoloBlue? Be sustainable, make water accessible for everyone, no plastic. Conserve today.

 

What is World Water Day?

World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about taking action to tackle the water crisis. Today, 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with faeces, putting them at risk of contracting cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio.

The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target to ensure everyone has access to safe water by 2030, making water a key issue in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty.

In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated March 22 as World Water Day. World Water Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.
