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Not flushing unwanted or out-of-date medications down the toilet or drain.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!

Mike Shouts Blog- “This Amazing Cooler-like Machine Will Turn Air Into Drinking Water”

Despite Earth’s 70% is covered by water, water remains a precious resource and as such many do not have access to clean, potable water. However, wherever you may be, there’s actually a water source which didn’t see. It is in plain sight, really, but invisible to our naked eyes. So where? Well, it is in the air, in the form of humidity and this machine you see here, EcoloBlue Atmospheric Water Generator, …

EcoloBlue’s Is In Marijuana Venture Magazine

EcoloBlue’s atmospheric water generators (AWGs) remove humidity from the air and turn it into potable water.

“One (AWG) machine can take greenhouse humidity, reduce humidity to help climate control, then come full circle and water the plants,” says Heather Jepsen, EcoloBlue’s vice president of operations. “It’s a closed system.”

ECOLOBLUE THE ​NEW AND ONLY ​SOURCE FOR “​SMART WATER ​GENERATION” (​SWG); ​ATMOSPHERIC ​WATER GENERATOR ​(AWG)

It is upon this backdrop and probable alternative (atmosphere) that EcoloBlue has developed a state of art water generation technology to complement the other sources of water from its near depletion. The technology is easy to use, adaptable and unique in its mode of operation.

It relies on the humid environment (as low as 30%) to generate pure water from the atmosphere given the fact that atmosphere contain less contaminants.  The products come in many forms; from smaller models generating 30litres of water per day suitable for homes and offices, to bigger models generating 10,000 liters of water per day suitable for a smaller communities.

EcoloBlue Soda-Summer’s Sparkling Water

Summer is finally here! With temperatures rising, it is important to stay hydrated to avoid any health issues. Of course drinking water is the best way to stay hydrated, but there are other options too. Instead of drinking plain water, try sparkling water for a good source of staying hydrated. Companies are coming out with new designs and new flavors of sparkling water to entice consumers to buy their product. Be careful and do not impulse buy, read the label and the ingredients that are used to make their sparkling water. Some sparkling waters include artificial flavoring and artificial sweeteners that are harmful to your health. Others may have all natural ingredients but the cost per bottle/can make buying one not an affordable option. We found a sparkling water on sale at a grocery store for $1.00 per 12 ounce can. If a person drinks six cups of water per day that would add up to four 12 ounce cans of sparking water per day, for a total of $4.00 a day. That is $120 spent a month drinking sparkling water, per person.
Save money and create your own natural flavored sparkling water with EcoloBlue’s atmospheric water generator Soda machine. You can use fruits or other natural herbs and enjoy sparking water with the flavors that you like. You will not have to be inconvenienced by running to the grocery store and hope to find sparkling water on sale. You will you have to worry about buying sparkling water with artificial ingredients that are not healthy for you. With EcoloBlue’s Soda machine you will have the benefit of sparkling water at any time with flavors of your choice. If you do not want to pay for the machine all at once EcoloBlue also offers financing options. Why not pay a onetime fee for a product that can last a lifetime and enjoy sparkling water whenever you want it.

Happy New Year 2016! Make Any Resolutions?

20160104_171329-1
We are back in the office and ready to start a great new year at EcoloBlue. Did you have a happy holiday and New Year? Did you make any resolutions for the new year? I didn’t.

However, now that I am sitting here looking at a full bottle of water, I realize I should be drinking more water. What?!?! An employee of EcoloBlue isn’t drinking enough water? Yes, I know. I have atmospheric water generators making the best water I can drink, right in the next room. But you know how it is… days fly by while you’re at work, you get extremely busy, and you just don’t think about it. At least I don’t. I think that will be my resolution, to drink more water. I have no excuse not to, and think of all the healthy benefits… better skin, more energy, helps with weight loss, and it’s just all around good for you.

Some authorities say that you should drink half your body weight in ounces every day. So if you weigh 150lbs, you should drink approximately 75oz of water a day. I do not know if that is best or not, however, you can use your best judgement on what is best for you. Personally, I have a 24oz water bottle on my desk at work. I’m going to make my goal to drink at least 2 full bottles of water during my work day. So get on board with me and drink more water!

Why World Toilet Day?

LOGO_En1

World Toilet Day is a day to take action. It is a day to raise awareness about all people who do not have access to a toilet – despite the human right to water and sanitation. It is a day to do something about it.

Of the world’s seven billion people, 2.4 billion people do not have improved sanitation. 1 billion people still defecate in the open. Poor sanitation increases the risk of disease and malnutrition, especially for women and children.

We cannot accept this situation. Sanitation is a global development priority. This is why in 2013 the United Nations General Assembly officially designated November 19 as World Toilet Day. World Toilet Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and relevant stakeholders.

This year, World Toilet Day is focusing on the link between sanitation and nutrition drawing the world’s attention to the importance of toilets in supporting better nutrition and improved health. Lack of access to clean drinking water and sanitation, along with the absence of good hygiene practices, are among the underlying causes of poor nutrition.

Do you know the important reasons why you need an EcoloBlue Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG)?

1. Do you regularly buy bottled water for your household? Did you know that an average household spends over 4 times as much a year on bottled water, over creating their own water from the air with EcoloBlue? And think of all the plastic bottle waste you are preventing.

2. Are you currently under mandatory water restrictions, and worry about the fate of your urban garden, flower beds, or greenhouse? One of EcoloBlue’s small industrial units can create water every day that you can use for watering your plants.

3. Are you a leader in the green or sustainability community? Do you see the benefits in promoting this technology to teach the future generations that there are solutions to help hydrate people and save the planet from plastic waste?

4. Do you live in a town where you rely on well water, and the wells are drying up? Sounds like you need to create water from the air to supplement your drinking water, and even your entire household’s water supply.

5. Did you know that atmospheric water generators are perfect for military bases around the world. They create water that can be used to fill canteens and water buffalo tanks, and provide the troops with their minimum daily requirement of water. We also offer a 20% military discount on our home/office units.

6. Are you the next city, state or country that will suffer from a debilitating drought? Be proactive and think to what you can do to help prevent this. EcoloBlue’s water station can provide millions of liters of water every day. Speak with your local agencies and government officials to let them know that this is the solution they need to look at.

7. Did you know that with our patented soda model, you can create sparkling water and turn it into soda or healthy sparkling beverages? Think of all the money you will save by not purchasing soda for your household. See some recipe ideas here: LINK

8. What happens when there is a natural disaster and everyone then rushes to the store to fill their carts with bottled water? Sometimes you arrive to empty shelves. If you can make your own water from the air with EcoloBlue using electricity (if you still have it), a backup generator, or solar, you will be all set. Aid agencies can turn to our A.C.E. Containers for larger scale solutions.

9. Are you an athlete that drinks a lot of water when you train or compete? Did you know that EcoloBlue water is 99.9% pure? Perfect for keeping your body hydrated and healthy.

10. Have you ever wanted to live off-grid, or have an eco-friendly vacation cabin? Running a home/office unit on solar is the perfect solution for your drinking water supply.
