For the third year in a row, Culligan International Company has declared May National Drinking Water Month as part Culligan’s commitment to educate the public about the importance of healthy, clean and safe drinking water. Equally important is to raise awareness about the impact consumer’s choices in drinking water can have can have upon the environment.

Disposable plastic bottles are easily recognized for their potential impact upon our environment.Roughly 2.7 million tons of plastic are used each year worldwide for disposable drinking bottles but less than 1% of all plastic is recycled, meaning 99% ofplastics are incinerated or end up in a landfill1. Even as recycling efforts increase, the environmental impact of the recycling efforts exists.Additionally, delivering water by truck generates CO2 emissions that can be eliminated.

Culligan Aqua-Cleer® Drinking Water System, for example, filters up to 99.9% of all contaminants2 and provides a virtual“bottled water plant” in your home. This under sink water filtration system provides you great tasting water for only pennies a glass. For hydration on-the-go, simply swap out your plastic bottles and fill up with reusable,non-toxic bottled quality water from your tap. The Culligan Aqua-Cleer® Drinking Water System provides a more comprehensive filtration system than possible with most faucet-mounted filters or water filtration pitchers, and can be customized to meet almost any water concern.

Make the environmentally friendly choice today - ask your Culligan Dealer to recommend the system that’s right for you.
