Nectar Wins Four Bronze 2012 IDEA Awards

Nature-emulating Pure Rain product line recognized for design excellence

LONG BEACH, Calif., July 2, 2012 — Today Nectar received four Bronze IDEA awards from the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) for its revolutionary Pure Rain garden watering system (purerain.com).

The awards were presented to Nectar for the Pure Rain Essentials Garden Water Spray Nozzle, Garden Water Wand, Garden Water Sprinkler and Garden Water Pro Sprinkler, all of which feature Nectar’s innovative nano-bubble technology.

“Garden hose nozzles and sprinklers have seen very little change over the last decade,” said Nectar CEO Darren Saravis. “We devised a technology that would not only update a product that so many people use every week, but also imbue it with the unique abilities of nature to make lawns and gardens more lush and healthy.”

Leafy plants use oxygen to absorb vital nutrients from the soil. When rain falls, it gathers oxygen, delivering highly oxygenated drops that help plants grow more efficiently. The first-ever nano-bubble technology in the Pure Rain line of products adds millions of microscopic oxygen bubbles to ordinary hose water as it passes through the sprinkler head or spray nozzle.

Watering your lawn or garden with Pure Rain products can increase plant growth by up to 30%. What’s more, with more oxygen in each spritz, you can use less water over all.

The Pure Rain spray nozzles and sprinklers are available in the U.S. at Target, Lowe’s and on Amazon.com, and at more stores in Canada.
