Products that Promote Water Conservation.
Our Moen business feels strongly about the need to positively impact water conservation. Many Moen products integrate water saving features, such as the U by Moen shower and MotionSense faucets. Other products meet or exceed water efficiency standards without sacrificing performance, like Moen’s Power Boost faucets and Immersion showerheads.
Moen also ensures water conservation is part of its product development processes. The business’ corporate office product testing facility recycles more than 60 percent of the water it uses for product testing, and associates continue working to reduce the amount of water testing requires.
Partnerships to Support Water Initiatives.
Another way Moen positively affects the world’s water system is through corporate giving and volunteerism. Moen supports organizations dedicated to water conservation and clean water access, both globally and locally. Moen has built a key community partnership with The Nature Conservancy to support water conservation. In addition, they work with Drink Local, Drink Tap to promote education and access to safe water in the Great Lakes region of the U.S. and in Africa. Moen’s contributions to Drink Local, Drink Tap have helped build six water and sanitation projects in Uganda and have educated thousands of students in Northeast Ohio.
Moen Water Treatment Program Reduces and Repurposes Waste.
The Sanford, North Carolina facility's wastewater treatment program cleans hazardous materials from the water stream, as well as finds ways to recycle some of the extracted materials. Part of the success of the water treatment program has been identifying ways to segregate the discarded material in the water so some of it can be recycled and repurposed by other industries. Additionally, a microfiltration system has been useful to recycling efforts, resulting in water being passed through a special membrane that captures particles and prevents them from passing to the water stream. This helps recover water that had been discharged as waste.
