What is lead:
Lead is a heavy metal that is normally found in the earth's crust. It has been used in a number of household products.
Where can lead be found?
Most houses built before 1978 are painted with lead-based paints. Lead is also found in old water pipes. Thus, through corroded piping, it can invade our home.
According to a recent study, only 65% of children consume the sufficient amount of water that their body needs daily. Do you know if your children consume as much as they need?

Water filters are "green"...
-> If we use filtered water, we do not throw plastic water bottles in the garbage. Plastic, although recyclable, often ends up in the trash can. Also, do not forget that it is not biodegradable, and it takes many years to dissolve. Water filters, on the other hand, always offer us fresh clean water, with our only "obligation" to renew the water filter cartridge annually.
Nearly one billion people live without clean drinking water. See how this affects everything.

George Margiolos was born in Thessaloniki and has graduated from the Department of Marketing of the Alexandreio Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki. He is fluent in English and (not so fluent) in German.
Ηe has been Project Manager at Avery Dennison - Fastener Division in the UK. There, his main project was to redesign the company's products into new applications so as to become more environmentally friendly. In combination with the fact that in the UK people are more familiar with water filters, he has developed a love for environmentally friendly water filters, which reduce the use of plastic bottles and improving people's quality of life.
Since 2008, he has published over 300 unique educational and informative articles on water filters and new water treatment technologies.
Occasionally, universities and doctoral students request to use George Margiolos' articles in their research because of their quality and uniqueness.
