Brita Hopes to Make Big Splash With Stephen Curry

REPOST from Creativity.

Brita is eager to find out whether an NBA star’s endorsement can do for water filters what it has done over the years for everything from soft drinks and sports drinks to apparel and restaurants.

The brand has debuted a new 30-second spot featuring the athlete. In it, Mr. Curry is surrounded by water as he takes shots on a CGI-infused basketball court and talks about water. Another one of his endorsements can be spotted in the Brita commercial, as he dribbles an Under Armour basketball, and wears that brand’s clothing. “You are what you drink,” he says near the end of the commercial, after taking a sip of water from a glass with the Brita logo on it.

The Clorox brand surprised some basketball fans when it announced that Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry would promote its water filters, and the idea of drinking more water in general, rather than teaming up with a larger beverage brand.

“He’s really a great role model for that millennial consumer, and that’s a direction that we want to make sure Brita is moving against effectively,” said Jon Schlesinger, Brita’s VP-marketing.

This week, Mr. Curry appeared at an Oakland, Calif., school to speak with students about the benefits of drinking water. Brita also announced a contest for people to come up with ideas for commercials about water, with the winning spot, set to air later this year, featuring Mr. Curry.

The moves come as Brita tries to grow usage of its filters, especially among the younger crowd that Mr. Curry appeals to.

Article Re-post: Are Your Children Dehydrated At School?

BRITA reveals the statistics of children’s drinking habits at school and that parents don’t know how much their children drink at school.

A new study by BRITA – Europe surveyed 2,000 parents of primary school children. The results show that almost three quarters of parents don’t know how much water their children drink whilst at school. 66% of parents admitted to not knowing the recommended daily intake of fluid for children.

Renowned London dietician and nutritionist, Jo Travers commented “Children are less likely to recognize the early stages of thirst, which adults are more aware of, meaning they can forget that drinking water regularly is important. When children return to school, after being under their parent’s guidance during the holidays, they can quickly get out of the habit of drinking regularly if they aren’t being reminded.”

Parents notice when their child is dehydrated when returning from school, over half of the respondents said their children are irritable and 59% of parents said their child was tired.

Jo Travers adds “Children require higher quantities of water in relation to their body weight than adults. When hydrated, children have greater cognitive function, better visual attention, improved accuracy in motor skills such as handwriting, and more concentration which helps them to perform better. Therefore it is important that parents have access to the right information and support to help them keep their children hydrated throughout the school day.”

The Myth of Hydration in Winter Months

MYTH: Cooler Temperatures Mean I Don’t Need To Drink As Much Water Because I’m Not Sweating As Much…

We don’t often associate cold weather with dehydration.

If you’re working or exercising outside on a cool fall day, or even a cold winter day, you’re just not as aware of losing fluids as you are when you’re sweating buckets in mid-August. First of all, humidity tends to be lower and as your sweat evaporates, you feel cooled off and fairly dry. Secondly, the colder it is, the more your body works to protect you from the cold. Nuun (a hydration drink) explains it this way: “blood (rushes) away from your extremities to your core to keep you toasty so there is more fluid than normal in your core. Your brain reads this core blood and can mistake it for water, and when it does your thirst doesn’t effectively grow at the same rate with which you’re losing water!

It’s just as important to maintain hydration in cooler, drier winter conditions as it is in steamy summer conditions, and it can be harder to recognize that you need water!

Tips for staying hydrated during winter:

1. Have a hydration plan and carry a reusable bottle wherever you go.

2. Pay attention to signs and symptoms of dehydration such as headaches, muscle cramping, or fatigue.

3. Drink warm water when the weather is cool to stay hydrated without dropping body temperature.

4. Sip on water every 15-20 minutes throughout the day and never wait until you are thirsty to drink as thirst means you are already dehydrated.

This fall and winter – stay hydrated; stay safe!

South Los Angeles Youth Debut School Hydration Station to Make Water the Healthy and Easy Choice

LOC-hydration-station2LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — National Health Foundation’s Health Academy youth and community partners celebrated the youths’ effort to bring the first hydration station to a high school in South Los Angeles with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, September 16th, 2015 at Thomas Jefferson High School.

Health Academy youth were prompted into action after alarming results from their campus-wide survey showed that two-thirds of water fountains on campus were rated poor and/or inoperable by their peers. In addition, 60% of peers stated that therefore they did not drink water on campus and opted for sugary drinks instead. Youth worked closely with school administration to address this issue.

Students led an initiative to increase the number of students consuming water on campus by educating their peers and making changes to the school’s built environment with the goal of making water the healthy and easy choice.  Health Academy students worked tirelessly to secure donations for the installation of a “hydration station” on-campus.  Brita generously donated a hydration station unit and the students secured funding from Central Alameda and South Central Neighborhood Councils for the installation of the unit.

The new hydration station is a Brita touch-free surface mounted hygienic cooling water unit that will help keep students and the school community healthy and hydrated.  By providing easy access to clean, safe water, the youth hope to improve water consumption for their peers and bring a healthy alternative to high-sugar beverage options.

“Our goal was to encourage students, faculty and the school community to drink more water. The hydration station is necessary for students because it provides both easy access to a cool drink of water as well as the ability to fill their reusable water containers.  The idea here is for Jefferson students to make drinking water a habit that will lead to a healthier lifestyle overall,” said Health Academy student, Joshua Guzman.

National Health Foundation’s (NHF’s) Health Academy is an after school program at Thomas Jefferson High School that engages youth ages 14-18. The program empowers dedicated youth to lead initiatives that build community and stakeholder support for policy, system, and environmental changes that work to improve the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables and opportunities for physical activity in the community. Funding for the program is provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health through a Nutrition Education Obesity Prevention grant, also known as Champions for Change.
