Recently Launched Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign Provides Means for Expansion
[Sarasota, FL, February 12, 2014] Since its inception, Aqua Mizer, Inc, a Sarasota-based company developing and selling green, water-saving toilet flush components, has used the slogan, Saving the Planet with American Ingenuity. When Aqua Mizer adopted this slogan, there was no thought that the company’s products would be sold anywhere but the USA. In fact, the original business plan focused only on sales in this country. But as its early products became known, inquiries began coming in from The Caribbean and later countries throughout Asia, Europe and Africa.
Now with a groundswell of interest from across the globe, Aqua Mizer is launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for increased production and delivery to water-critical regions both near and far.
Several months ago, The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), the organization that certifies Aqua Mizer products for uniform code compliance contacted company executives regarding the product’s Green benefits. IAPMO’s many sub-groups include teams that certify Green plumbing products, accredit Green plumbers, and train plumbers in water conservation around the world.
The IAPMO Group is urging Aqua Mizer to complete the Green certification for its flush systems. The group is anxious to facilitate the introduction of the flush units to India and other countries, where water shortages are critical.
Through this channel, there are opportunities to bring the Aqua Mizer technology to hundreds of communities that are building new housing facilities, hospitals, dormitories, hotels, etc. Efficient, sanitary toilet appliances and proper waste disposal are vital components in the process of getting people out of ghettos and into proper housing. The humanitarian benefit of providing quality toilet facilities that use the bare minimum of available water is immeasurable.
Aqua Mizer is also working with an organization in Iraq that is expanding distribution to the entire country, as well as all the middle-east countries to bring in American-style toilet appliances, including the Aqua Mizer system. The expected results are similar to India, as these countries rebuild their infrastructures. Similar efforts are taking place in Australia and South Africa, where severe drought conditions are affecting the quality of life for everyone.
Closer to home, Aqua Mizer is working with distributors in The Bahamas, Costa Rica and other countries in the region to reduce their water usage with flush toilets. Soon the Aqua Mizer water-saving flush systems will be distributed where it will benefit millions of people.
Aqua Mizer’s campaign is set up on the popular crowdfunding website, Indiegogo.com. The fundraising mechanism consists of individuals from anywhere in the world purchasing Aqua Mizer products at discounted retail pricing. Since Aqua Mizer only sells through wholesale distribution, this is a rare opportunity for homeowners to acquire these Green products.
Indiegogo’s success comes from its mission to be the fundraising channel for cause-related projects launched by passionate founders. “We felt that our water-saving product line was a perfect fit for the Indiegogo visitors. But in order for us to be successful, it is important to bring in our friends, family members, and everyone we know who cares about conserving this planet’s precious water resources,” says Michael Sisti, Aqua Mizer, Inc.’s VP of Marketing. “It’s something our entire community can be proud of. And we are hoping a large number will spread the word about our campaign, make a small purchase, and save water with Aqua Mizer. But most of all, we hope they appreciate what they will be doing for water conservation throughout the world.”
