NORTH OLMSTED, OHIO -- Moen, the 2010 WaterSense Manufacturer Partner of the Year, welcomed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson to its global headquarters on Friday, June 17, 2011. Mike Bauer, president of Moen’s U.S. Businesses, facilitated a tour of its facility, including its Design Reliability Lab, to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the WaterSense program and to highlight the company’s products, programs, manufacturing processes and testing methods for its WaterSense-certified products.
“At Moen, we realize that everything we do has a dramatic impact on future generations, and that includes how we use our precious natural resources – particularly water,” said Bauer. “On the fifth anniversary of the WaterSense program, Moen is very pleased to be a partner that not only assists consumers and protects these resources, but is also committed to developing stylish, reliable products that save water without sacrificing performance.”
Moen annually saves 50 million gallons of water by recycling the water it uses at its global headquarters. In addition, all of the company’s single and multi-family residential lavatory faucets, as well as 70 showering models, meet WaterSense criteria.
“Americans want to conserve and protect our nation’s waters, which is clear not just in the priorities they express to the EPA and elected officials, but also through the products they buy and the decisions they make as consumers,” said Jackson. “For five years, the EPA’s WaterSense program has empowered consumers to save money and conserve valuable water resources. We’re proud to see companies like Moen leading the way, creating jobs for American workers across the country at the same time they’re helping American families save money and protect the environment.”
