May 17, 2017 - A LANDMARK DAY!
May 17, 2017 - A LANDMARK DAY! WorldWater & Solar Technologies CEO Quentin Kelly has traveled the globe countless times, only to find an increasingly dangerous problem with the lack of clean drinking and bathing water, and in particular, in the countries of Eastern Africa. Here at the Princeton, New Jersey headquarters of WorldWater & Solar Technologies, he explains the seriousness of this global crisis which affects not only health issues, but cultural issues as well. His company has created an extraordinary and portable solar powered device that can filter the dirtiest of unusable and contaminated water and convert it for purified drinking and bathing use. May 17, 2017 became a Landmark Day, as he explains how 23 year old marathon runner and New Jersey native James Leitner, with 90 pounds of water in tow, starts his walking trek across America that very same day from the grounds of the Princeton facility....the "Clean Water Walk Across America". James's 3200 mile journey began in Princeton and will end in San Francisco, California. The May 17th kickoff event and ceremony was sponsored by Ortlieb USA, a distributor of products including a wide range of high-end outdoor gear. Beatrice Kimmel of NYC's HyPR Media orchestrated the Public Relations for this unique media occasion. For add'l information: www.worldwatersolar.com
