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Not flushing unwanted or out-of-date medications down the toilet or drain.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 At The Green Festival Expo

The 2016 Green Festival Expo was a huge success. Our weekend started with our EB 30 series unit showcased on KTVU Channel 2 Fox News.  During the presentation the president of The Green Festival Expo, Dr. Corinna Basler, spoke about EcoloBlue atmospheric water generators being one of her “favorite products.” We left the news station and joined other vendors at GreenFest where it did not take long for consumers to approach us to find out more about our product. Friday might have been the slowest day but we were always on our feet talking to potential customers, and several people were able to meet and chat with one of our owners and CEO, Henri- James Tieleman. Our Sales Executive, John Mortlock gave a great speech about “Water in the 21 Century.” His speech brought awareness to nationwide issues that are currently going on with water, and the solution that EcoloBlue can offer to water crises globally. People were able to not only view our products but were also able to purchase an EB30. One customer walked away happy to bring a unit home with her that day.

Saturday brought even more eco-friendly consumers to GreenFest, and great connections were made with people from all across the U.S. Our water drop mascot pleased the crowd and gave people an understanding of EcoloBlue and what was expected at our booth. We met people from Florida, New York, New Jersey, Southern California, Texas and some people from overseas that were all glad they came and learned about our EcoloBlue. People were shocked that they were drinking “water from air” and amazed as to how great the water tasted.

On top of the relationships that were made the attendees, we also became friends with the sustainable vendors that participated at GreenFest. World Progress Now, Valley Oak Dairy, Tower Garden, The Solar Company and Thanksgiving Coffee are just a few of the vendors that we meet that also support sustainability. By Sunday we were able to speak with other vendors and we were impressed to see all that is out there for sustainability including sustainable clothes, shoes, toys, kitchenware, and more. 

Overall we had a great time and established some great friendships.

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.

One such company is EcoloBlue, which is based in Pacheco, California. The company has developed technology that converts water vapor in the air into liquid water, which can serve many purposes, including drinking water and water for daily uses, such as bathing and washing. The company primarily manufactures smaller units for homes and offices, but its technology could offer a solution in situations where clean water is scarce. Heather Jepsen, Vice President of Operations, shares the company’s story, including how its products have been marketed and how it is gaining recognition in an industry that doesn’t always immediately embrace newer technology.

How ocean pollution affects humans

Even though some people may believe that ocean pollution does not affect them, these people are very wrong. Whether you live directly on the coast or hundreds of miles away from a beach, ocean pollution affects everyone.

The ocean is one of the largest, abundant and diverse ecosystems on the planet, which provides over 70% of the oxygen that we breathe and over 97% of the world’s water supply without it, we would not exist.

However, everyday the ocean is being attacked by manmade and natural pollution, which is bringing it to the point of disaster.

Plastic is one of the largest factors of ocean pollution. Did you know that over 8 million tons of plastic is being deliberately dumped into the ocean every year? Even though these off shore waste areas are hundreds of miles away from the beach, plastic still manages to end up on our beaches and coastlines, destroying marine life and their habitats in its wake.

If you would like to learn more about ocean pollution and how it affects marine life as well as life on earth, take a look at the fascinating infographic, created by the team at divein.com
