Pur Water Filtration, a Helen of Troy Ltd. business, recently donated 20,000 faucet water filtration systems and 500 water filter pitchers valued at more than $450,000 to the city of Newark, New Jersey.
The company stepped in to donate their point-of-use faucet filtration systems and pitchers after learning that thousands of Newark families were experiencing high lead levels in their homes. The donation reinforces Pur’s ongoing commitment to help families and communities nationwide reduce lead and other contaminants in their water.
The donation also continues Pur’s history of helping communities and organizations with lead concerns. To date, the company has donated over $1.4 million worth of products to support cities and organizations with water contamination issues.
“We’re proud to be able to donate our Pur faucet filtration systems to help those who are experiencing high levels of lead in their drinking water,” said Deb Mudway, vp/marketing Pur. “Our Pur faucet filtration systems are NSF and WQA certified to remove 99% of lead and reduce over 70 other contaminants, more than any other brand. Hopefully, having our products in their homes will give residents peace of mind that they’re drinking cleaner water during these difficult times.”
