    Don’t Let Lead Go Untreated

    • Lead exposure in children has been linked to damage to the central nervous and peripheral nervous system, learning disabilities, and even anxiety.
    • If kids avoid drinking their school’s water all together, they could become dehydrated, impacting their cognitive performance. 2

    ezH2O Bottle Filling Station In School

    Advocate for Your School

    When there’s no clean drinking water available at school, it affects everyone in attendance. You may feel like the world is on your shoulders, having to provide heavy and expensive five-gallon jugs of water and disposable plastic bottles. You don’t have to go it alone — Elkay can help you get the water your school needs. Here’s how to educate your students, peers and school decision makers.

    1. Know more, teach more.  
      • The more you know about lead, the better equipped you’ll be to teach your students about it. And the more you know about ezH2O® filtered bottle filling stations, the better you can advocate for your students.
      • Learn how filtration can help fix lead in drinking water.
      • Read this success story for inspiration and help for building a case for your school.
      • Download this fun activity that educates students about filtration.
      • Provide students with this letter they can complete to request cleaner drinking water from their principal.
      • If you already have a bottle filling station, check to see if it has these lights to know it’s a filtered unit.
        If the light is yellow, it’s time to replace the filter — don’t wait for it to turn red.

    1. Influence your principal. Together, you, other staff members and parents can bring a case to your principal and school board. Show them the solution and all its benefits. Share what you know and fight for your school’s health at your next school board meeting. 

    1. Spread the word. Share what you’ve learned with your peers and community on social media. This could help you gain more support and spark fundraising ideas.
