Aquasana, maker of award-winning water filtration products for the home and on-the-go, has been named a 2020 Eco Excellence Award winner by b/well magazine for its 5300+ Max Flow Under Sink Water Filtration System. In a time when uncertainty about the United States’ drinking water quality has increased 50% since 2019 and concerns over the presence of harmful contaminants are on the rise, Aquasana has been honored for its high-performance water filtration technology and significant role in helping reduce single-use plastic waste.
“We know that Americans are concerned about what’s in their drinking water, especially when it comes to lead and emerging chemicals like PFAS,” said Derek Mellencamp, general manager at Aquasana. According to the company’s second annual National Water Quality Survey, lead stands out as the primary tap water concern among U.S. adults in 2020. Additionally, awareness around PFOA/PFOS – the “forever chemicals” that garnered national attention in the movie Dark Waters – saw significant growth across the country in the past year, including a 114% increase among Gen Z in particular.
Now in its tenth year, the Eco Excellence Awards recognize leaders in social and environmental sustainability for products, services and organizations committed to healthier approaches to living. The Aquasana 5300+ Max Flow ($175 at aquasana.com) removes up to 99% of 77 different contaminants – 15 times more toxins than the leading pitcher filter – including lead, PFOA/PFOS, arsenic, asbestos, pharmaceuticals and more, while preserving water’s healthy minerals. Designed with ease of use and the environment in mind, each long-lasting filter cartridge replaces over 6,400 plastic bottles of water.
“Filtering your tap water is essential to improving the overall health and environmental quality of your home,” added Mellencamp. “We’re honored to receive this prestigious award for the fifth consecutive year. As we get ready to celebrate National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (Oct. 25-31), we couldn’t think of a better time to help shine a spotlight on this very important issue.”
National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week aims to educate parents on the many ways they can reduce children’s exposure to lead in their environment and prevent its serious health effects, including at the tap. It’s estimated that 63 million Americans have been exposed to lead in their drinking water over the last decade alone.
