UL joins the Field Museum for World Water Day March 22

CHICAGO, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a world leader in product safety testing services, will launch its water quality and conservation educational campaign in the East Wing of the Field Museum, 1400 S. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 22, 2009. As part of the organization's century-long commitment to public health and safety, UL aims to raise awareness of water sanitation and conservation issues through its educational campaign that includes water quality testing information and conservation tips.

"Nearly a billion people--that's one out of every eight worldwide--lack access to clean drinking water(1)," said Jeff Smith, General Manager, UL Global Water Business. "Children are more vulnerable than any other age group to the health effects of unclean water, so it is imperative that we launch our educational effort with a focus on teaching children the value of this natural resource and how we can protect it."

UL will launch its educational campaign during the World Water Day festivities at The Field Museum, which include family workshops and science demonstrations. At the event, UL will host several hands-on experiments through the use of learning labs, demonstrating how water contaminants such as E. coli and pesticides are analyzed in drinking water. Additionally, UL will host special viewings of the newly released Wild About Safety(R) Timon and Pumbaa Safety Smart(R) Goes Green!, a classroom edition DVD developed through a partnership between UL and various units of The Walt Disney Company. Safety Smart Goes Green! teaches us what we can do to help our environment - our air, our water and our world. Children that participate in UL activities will be rewarded with the Wild About Safety certificate and encouraged to make 'safety smart' decisions during W
