Shaklee Introduces Get Clean Water Filter

PLEASANTON, CA -- Shaklee Corporation, a leading provider of natural nutrition, personal care and environmentally friendly home care products, announced today the release of Get Clean® Water, a revolutionary new water filtration pitcher system certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) to reduce up to 99 percent of lead, as well as more than 50 contaminants that may cause health problems.*

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, lead is a toxic metal now known to be harmful to human health if ingested. Lead is often present in drinking water due to the corrosion of household plumbing and is estimated to contribute up to 20 percent of lead exposure in young children. Chronic lead exposure can result in lowered IQ, behavioral problems and learning disabilities.

Multi-patented Get Clean Water uses a solid block of carbon to filter and clean water. Each Get Clean Water filter is certified to reduce contaminants from 80 gallons of water, twice as much as Brita® and PUR® pitcher filters, and each filter is made from sustainable coconut shell carbon using a zero-emission process. As the first pitcher with a refillable carbon-block filter system, Get Clean Water also reduces landfill waste.

"A study has shown a total of more than 300 agricultural and industrial pollutants in the tap water of 45 states with more than half of those pollutants having no drinking water safety standards," said Dr. Jamie McManus, Chairman of Medical Affairs, Health Sciences and Education at Shaklee. "Get Clean Water is certified by the Water Quality Association to reduce over 50 contaminants, and each filter has double the filtration capacity of Brita and PUR pitcher filters. These benefits make Get Clean Water an ideal solution for consumers interested in a fresh take on clean water."
