Nada bottle is passionate about eliminating one of the biggest causes of death in the world: bad water. We are joining forces with our consumers to help change the world. After experiencing first-hand the lack of clean water, Nada Bottle made it a priority to provide water filters to those in need. For every Nada Bottle sold, one person in an impoverished community will be provided with safe drinking water. This will be accomplished by allocating a portion of the funds from Nada Bottle sales to the construction of wells and distribution of Sawyer Water Filters around the world. Every Nada Bottle customer will receive an authentic link between the product they purchased and the location of the safe water they donated. Once you receive you water bottle, simply type the coordinates located on the packaging into our Locate Life page at www.nadabottle.com and see where your clean water donation went!
The filters are developed using dialysis technology, the Hollow Fiber Membrane filter has tiny “U” shaped microtubes with 0.1 micron pores to filter harmful bacteria and contaminants. The extremely fast flow rate and compact size (it weighs just 3 ounces) allows individuals to filter water as needed, eliminating large water storage systems. The Sawyer filter is easily cleaned with an included backwash syringe.
-Making bottles to meet America’s demand for bottled water uses more than 17 million barrels of oil annually, enough to fuel 1.3 million cars for a year.
-The energy we waste using bottled water would be enough to power 190,000 homes.
-Last year, the average American used 167 disposable water bottles, but only recycled 38.
-Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year. However, the U.S.’s recycling rate for plastic is only 23 percent, which means 38 billion water bottles – more than $1 billion worth of plastic – are wasted each year.
-The recommended eight glasses of water a day, at U.S. tap rates equals about $.49 per year; that same amount of bottled water is about $1,400.
-Antimony, which is found in PET plastic bottles, in small doses can cause dizziness and depression; in larger doses it can cause nausea, vomiting and death.
