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."
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.
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
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
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.
