LONDON, ON, June 2, 2011 /CNW/ - Finally, guilt-free bottled water: a new innovation from 3M, the Filtrete™ Water Station provides the benefits of bottled water while eliminating the cost and waste that disposable water bottles generate. The Filtrete Water Station filters water directly from the tap into four, reusable BPA-free bottles. 

"We know drinking water is an important part of maintaining healthy bodies, and constantly buying cases of bottled water can get expensive for families. Plus, our environment certainly doesn't benefit from having disposable water bottles sitting in landfills," says Michelle Weir, Brand Manager for Filtrete Products at 3M Canada. "The new Filtrete Water Station is a really great solution for those looking to eliminate bottled water waste and soaring costs, while still maintaining the convenience of bottled water."

Fill:

  • The Water Station helps reduce sediments, chlorine and odor while improving the overall taste and clarity of tap water.
  • The Filtrete fast-flow filtration technology filters water in just seconds, much faster than traditional filtering pitchers.
  • Fill one, two, three, or all four bottles at a time. Avoid spills with the Water Station's valves, which prevent leaks if all four bottles aren't in place.

Go:

  • The Water Station includes four reusable grab-and-go bottles that are BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and feature a leak-proof cap which hold 500 ml of water.
  • Additional bottles can be purchased separately.

Reduce and Reuse:

  • Choosing a reusable bottle eliminates the cost and waste of disposable water bottles.
  • Filters last up to 100 gallons, or for about three months.
  • The built-in Filter Change Indicator takes the guesswork out of changing the filter since it lets you know when it's time for a replacement.
  • The filter housing is recyclable #2 plastic, just like a typical milk jug.

In addition to the Water Station, the line of Filtrete Water Filtration Products includes the fast-filtering Water Pitcher for home fridges, as well as filtration systems for under the sink. The Filtrete Water Pitcher also features fast-flow filtration technology that filters water in seconds.

The Filtrete Water Station is now available at Loblaws, RONA, Staples, London Drugs, Staples and Overwaitea for about $49.99. Additional water bottles are available for $19.99 for a two pack. The Filtrete Water Pitcher is also available for $39.99 and replacements filters sell for $14.99. For more information, visit www.Filtrete.ca/Water.
