Our children deserve clean water, especially where they're learning and growing every day. That's why we're providing fresh, filtered drinking water to schools in need — and teaching healthy hydration habits for life.
Cleaner, Healthier Water for School
Our children deserve clean water, especially where they’re learning and growing every day. That’s why we’re providing fresh, filtered drinking water to schools in need—and teaching healthy hydration habits for life.
Many Schools Lack Safe Water
It’s not just Michigan—students across the U.S. risk exposure to lead, copper and other toxins in their water. Last year, an estimated 13 million American children went to schools where officials found elevated levels of lead.1
We're Helping Make a Change
Starting in Chicagoland schools, Elkay® is donating ezH2O bottle filling stations to put cleaner, healthier water within everyone’s reach. They’re certified to filter out lead and other contaminants, while reducing plastic waste.
