3M Filtrete Water Station

The 3M Filtrete Water Station is finally here. This great system from 3M provides the convenience of bottled water without the cost or waste. Unlike traditional filters that are slow and require separate bottles or glasses, the Filtrete Water Station filters water directly from the tap into four BPA free, reusable water bottles. This system makes sense...why buy water bottles when you can own a system that does an amazing job at filtering your water and is great for the environment at the same time. Many companies that bottle water and charge outrageous prices may market the water like it came from a fresh spring somewhere in the mountains when the truth is they are using the same water you can get out of your tap, so why not get the water from the tap, and filter it right into a BPA free bottle for added convenience.

One reason people may be concerned about BPA is because human exposure to BPA is widespread. The 2003-2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found detectable levels of BPA in 93% of 2517 urine samples from people six years and older. The CDC NHANES data are considered representative of exposures in the United States. Another reason for concern, especially for parents, may be because some animal studies report effects in fetuses and newborns exposed to BPA. 3M Filtrete has eliminated BPA from the bottles in the Filtrete Water Station so with every sip of fresh water you will truly be putting only fresh, filtered water into your body.

If you would prefer to have all the great benefits of the Filtrete Water Station but have no use for the reusable water bottles, Filtrete makes a new water pitcher that uses the same great water filtering technology in a Filtrete water pitcher. This Filtrete water pitcher will provide the same filtered water as the Filtrete Water Station as it uses the same filter...better yet why not use both, one for convenience on the go the other for great water at home. If you have any questions regarding the new 3M Filtrete Water Station gives us a call or shoot us an email and we would be happy to assist you.
