Filters Fast Announces The Debut of Their W3 Water Philanthropy Project
Filters Fast LLC is proud to announce the launch of their water philanthropy project, Work and Walk for Water (W3). Work and Walk for Water or W3 is designed for donors to either donate money, miles or both.
- Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC (1888PressRelease) February 01, 2012 - Filters Fast LLC, the largest online retailer for water and air filters, announces the launch of their Work and Walk for Water (W3) Project. The W3 Project is committed to educating and engaging the community in a humanitarian effort to help provide clean drinking water to those who do not have access to it.
Throughout many countries, like parts of Africa for example, women and children have to walk approximately 3.7 miles to carry gallons of water back to their homes and villages. Women and children usually bear the burden of collecting water by walking to the nearest water source which is generally contaminated because it is also shared with livestock and other animals. In most cases, contaminated water is their only option for drinking water which can trigger waterborne diseases that could result in death. Roughly 3.6 million people die from a water-related disease each year.
While the W3 Project emphasizes its objective for clean drinking water, the benefits of walking are well-publicized and great for your health. Some employees at Filters Fast walk about 1 to 3 miles per hour at work, while using a TrekDesk Treadmill Desk to track their miles. The TrekDesk encourages weight loss, along with a total overhaul of your mental and physical well-being while at work or home. Doctors credit walking with reducing your risks of hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and arthritis.
Filters Fast is committed to engaging and educating the community in this humanitarian effort to help eradicate the tragic outcome of contracting waterborne diseases that can result in death from simply drinking unclean water. You do not have to be a water scientist, ground water professional or public health professional in order to get involved. All it takes is a willingness to do something as simple as walking and donating money or miles to the cause.
Since 2004, Filters Fast remains committed as an authoritative resource to let consumers know about the importance of changing their air filters and water filters. By simplifying a sometimes mundane, but very necessary task, Filters Fast, LLC strives to add to their customer's overall quality of life by offering first-rate products at the best competitive prices.
