Zurn Industries Earth Day

Zurn Industries LLC is observing Earth Day 2015 by promoting engineered water solutions to help customers use less water.

Originating on April 22, 1970, Earth Day is celebrating its 45th anniversary. Commonly considered the birthday of the modern environmental movement, it takes place exactly one month after World Water Day, which this year carried the theme, “Water and Sustainable Development.” World Water Day was created by the United Nations in 1993 to spotlight a different issue each year that touches on the world’s management of one of its most precious resources.

Zurn has a history of developing engineered water solutions that deliver water efficiency, aligning with the world’s current emphasis on identifying the best ways to manage water resources.

“People who own or manage buildings might be pleasantly surprised at how much water they can save by using the latest innovations in water-efficient technology,” says Robert Carter, product manager for Zurn. “The latest example of our engineered water solutions would be the January launch of the Zurn High Efficiency Toilet and Carrier system that makes it much more feasible to install low-flow systems while saving 30% water usage.”

Zurn also has created an education program with AIA-approved CEU courses on topics that include “Sustainable Restroom Design,” “Creating a Sanitary Water Environment,” and “Innovative Water Conservation Fixtures.”  In addition, Zurn’s website offers a water usage calculator, a tool to help a design team compare the efficiency of water fixture systems and make the appropriate specification.
