WorldBeat Center is joining the global World Water Day festivities with a full day celebration in San Diego on Sunday March 22nd, 2015. WorldBeat Center will be collaborating with local environmental organizations to continue to educate the public about water issues including conservation. With California’s continual drought and new water conservation restrictions it is important that San Diegans are aware of the new water restrictions and ways to save water. Activities will include: Afro-Cuban Percussion and Dance and African Dance workshops, local water activist speakers, Tibetan Bell Meditation, outdoor children’s water conservation poster painting, children’s storytelling and a globally synchronized water blessing and meditation. WorldBeat Center will also feature two atmospheric water generators (AWG) that make water from air and are sponsored by Watair and EcoloBlue. At 6pm PST millions will be uniting in “a moment of intention” for the waters of our world and the creatures that inhabit them. Both WorldBeat Center and Centro Cultural de la Raza are celebrating World Water Day as part of their mutual water history as former water towers.

World Water Day:
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March as the first World Water Day. 22 years later, World Water Day is celebrated around the world shining the spotlight on a different issue every year. For 2015, the theme for World Water Day is ‘Water and Sustainable Development’. To learn more visit www.unwater.org

EcoloBlue’s atmospheric Water generators are state of the art AWGs, with a major emphasis on Water generation, energy reductions, and ease of use. The EcoloBlue range varies from up to 30L/8Gal a day for the home/office market, up to millions of liters/day in customizable Water Stations.

Did you know that you can make Free Soda with EcoloBlue?

EB30sBundle250x250
EcoloBlue’s patented model, EcoloBlue 30s, can make sparkling water from the air. Not only will it start off with 99.9% pure water, but then you can transform it to whatever you or your children desire.

How much money do you spend a year on soda? Many of the articles we have read state that the average American household spends approximately $850 on soda annually. And I wonder if that is just Coke, Sprite, Dr Pepper and the like. I wonder if they include sparkling water (plain or flavored), ginger ale, tonic water, and others as well.

On top of that, American’s spend approximately $240 per person on bottled water every year. And that is not even addressing the environmental impact of what is happening (or not happening) with all of those plastic bottles.

If we do the math… taking into account an average household to be 4 people, that is approximately $1810 spent on soda and bottled water per year for the average household. That in itself pays for your EcoloBlue machine, that now fulfills both of those needs for you, and includes your first filled CO2 canister and water bottle. While you may have to periodically purchase replacement CO2, or your preferential flavorings for your soda, these costs are very minimal in the grand scheme of things, and completely in your control based on usage.

If you prefer to stick with a more natural soda, by adding fruit or herbs, we have come up with a few suggestions on a previous blog post that you can peruse.

Think about it…. doesn’t it make sense to make your own water from the air, and reap in these savings all year long? Seems pretty logical to me.

And even better now that we are running a 20% Off promo on these home/office machines through the end of April (Promo: SPRING20). You can cash in on these savings even more.

Give us a call (800-691-6043) if you’d like to chat with one of our Sales Representatives about any questions you may have.

Why does my Water Production vary? Relative Humidity, Absolute Humidity and Dew Point.

SRI sci-tech TWEETS - KID's Sci-Tech Blog

SRI sci-tech TWEETS – KID’s Sci-Tech Blog


We have customers that ask periodically why their water production declines in the Winter. While your humidity level (RH%) may stay in a similar range to what it was in previous months, the temperature will have an effect on the actual moisture in the air. You should also be looking at your dew point averages to get a better understanding in the fluctuation in the high and low moisture levels. The website weatherspark.com is a great starting point. Find the closest location to you, and view the Humidity and Dew Point charts.

Absolute Humidity is another major factor, as it is defined as the amount of water vapor present in a unit volume of air, usually expressed in grams per cubic meter. This would be a more accurate measurement of how much available moisture there is in the air, that your machine will be able to condense and collect.

EcoloBlue‘s machines are designed to still be able to produce some water in times of low moisture. However, when your regional location goes on the drier side, that is the beauty of EcoloBlue’s machines being hybrid units. Not only can they create water from the air when you are experiencing great humid air, you can also hook up your machine to municipal water during the drier times. While it is some people’s preference not to do that, you can be assured that EcoloBlue’s 12 stage filtration process, is removing all of the unwanted particles in your water.

Below are a couple links to explain all of this information further.

Should I Drink Seltzer Water? EcoloBlue says Yes!

5/5 experts say yes.

Seltzer—also known as bubbly water, carbonated water, soda water and sparkling water—comes with as almost as many health myths as it does names. Does it leach calcium from bones? Or destroy the enamel of teeth? Will water plus carbon dioxide equal certain death?

You’re in luck. Seltzer is one of the rare instances where something you love drinking isn’t bad for you. All of our experts say bottoms up to bubbles.

Most obviously, seltzer’s a great soda alternative, since it lacks the calories and sugar of sweetened carbonated drinks. Switching to unsweetened bubbles is a healthy step for anyone, says Laureen Smith, PhD, RN, associate professor at the Ohio State University College of Nursing, who’s studied how to get kids to stop drinking sugary sodas. “For those who choose carbonated sodas, it may provide the sought-after carbonation without the sugar,” she says.

SOURCE

And then it’s even better if it’s carbonated water made from the air, using one of EcoloBlue’s patented EB30s Soda machines. Not only is the water 99.9% pure, you also can save your wallet and save the planet by not going out and buying bottles of sparkling water and soda. Make your own at home, and flavor as you like. Some suggestions are HERE.
