Seldon Technologies reaches out in time of need
Windsor, VT – Part 1
Seldon Technologies Inc., a Windsor Vermont based green technologies business has been extending their global reach by providing products for use in humanitarian and relief efforts around the world. This is part one of a multi-part blog that will highlight those efforts.
It’s just water, right?
Many of us take water for granted but much of the developing world and areas that has been ravaged by natural disaster are in dire need of safe drinking water. Worldwide, more than 2 million people die each year from diseases caused by unclean water and poor sanitary conditions. Every five seconds, a child dies from a water-borne disease. Seldon Technologies has developed clean water products that address this critical need.
Windsor company ships help to Haiti
Seldon Technologies stepped to the forefront and has been recognized by the United States Congressional Record (volume 156, issue 23) for their help with disaster relief in Haiti. Seldon products have been deployed to provide the people of Haiti with safe drinking water filtered from some of the most harsh conditions.
Seldon WaterBox™ has been donated for use at the Garnier River of Haiti. A river home to the raw sewage of 10 camps up stream. It is considered the dirtiest river in Haiti. The first day of deployment the Haitian adults and children looked on, incredulous, as the Americans drank the Garnier River water from the filter system.
Two days later when the Americans remained healthy there was a line for water. The people of Haiti continue to pump the filtered water and remain healthy. The WaterBox™ has potentially saved a countless number of innocent lives and continues to serve those people and the aid workers when no other means is available.
Patented Carbon Nano-Technology allows Seldon products to purify any ground water source to beyond United States Environmental Protection Agency drinking standards without the need for chemical, power, heat or wait time. The system is simple to use and maintain, does not waste water nor remove important minerals necessary for good health.
