The World Drinking Water Market
Water is the most common substance on earth. This might lead us to believe that fresh water is plentiful, even in industrialized countries like the United States. But, only 2.5% of the global water supply is fresh - the rest salty.
If the tiny percentage of fresh water available was clean, we might have enough for the world’s growing population. but it’s not. The worldwide need for pure portable drinking water has grown over the last ten years due to population growth, increased agricultural and industrial use, drought, climate change and pollution of the environment. That means more than 1.1 billion people lack access to clean water and the United Nations estimates that by 2050, that number will dramatically increase.
The Pacific Institute estimates that between 52 and 118 million people will die of preventable water-related diseases by 2020. The World Health Organization estimates that up to 5 million people die each year from the lack of clean drinking water - that’s more than 13,000 deaths per day.
The need is obvious - people can’t depend upon cities, states or even governments to protect them from contaminants and pollutants finding their way into our water supplies. Even in the United Sates, the problem is growing each year. In October 2003, the EPA published a report (EPA 816K-03-007) Water On Tap: What You Need To Know. On pages 23 to 27, it listed 87 contaminants that could be found in drinking water, and their personal health effects. Many of these contaminants are specifically liked to cancer, liver and kidney disease and death. Since our bodies are approximately 75% water, and 70% of the water we drink each day is away from home, everyone needs a portable water supply they can trust.
About 21 years ago, Carl Palmer, the Founder, President and Chairman of the Board of Seychelle Environmental Technologies Inc., came up with a new filtration system called the Ionic Adsorption Micron Filter. The new filter removes up to 99.99% of contaminants found in drinking water - and is the only one which treats the five major zones of contamination. Our Advance Filter has been proven effective in the removal of bacteria and virus up to 99.9999% (six logs).
To date, over 7.5 million filters have been used by people everywhere - campers, hikers, bikers, police, UK Supreme Commandos, U.S. Marines, missionaries, disaster relief and aid workers, humanitarian groups and people who want to insure that the water they drink is great-tasting, clean and safe!
