American Standard Named 2012 WaterSense Partner of the Year
American Standard is a proud recipient of the WaterSense® Partner of the Year Award for 2012 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This recognition highlights our commitment to pioneering water-saving solutions and educating people across the country about protecting the earth’s most valuable resource – water. With hundreds of American Standard WaterSense certified products – all of which offer water savings of 20 percent or more - the choice to conserve water without sacrificing style or performance is easy.
American Standard is strongly committed to water conservation efforts and is delighted to sponsor the Green Building Program, a unique K-12 curriculum that teaches students about sustainable building, ecology, and the environment. Launched in partnership with the Green Education Foundation (GEF), this exciting program turns students’ own schools into teaching tools that demonstrate the attributes and benefits of green building. In addition, it provides opportunities that extend beyond learning, with the capacity to generate real cost savings for schools on their water usage.
American Standard Brands partners with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop and test a low-cost, prefabricated toilet system that is more hygienic, easier to install, and easier to maintain to help the nearly 40 percent of the world’s population that lack adequate sanitation facilities. American Standard engineers will work in collaboration with the Gates Foundation’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Strategy, and the International Development Enterprises (iDE), to develop the new toilet system.
Living Water International is a non profit organization that helps communities acquire desperately needed clean water. They implement participatory, community-based water solutions in developing countries and have completed more than 10,000 water projects (and counting!) for communities in 26 countries since their start in 1990. The Wells Project, Living Water International’s student (movement/organization), is giving college students nation-wide an opportunity to change lives through clean water.
H2O for Life provides a transformational service-learning opportunity for students, youth groups and others to partner with a school in a developing country that desperately needs Water, Sanitation and Hygiene education (WASH in Schools Initiative). Through service-learning, donor partners study the global water crisis, while taking action to fund a WASH project for their recipient partner school. Students and adults learn they can make a difference in the lives of others, becoming energized global citizens and activists for change.
