Partnering for a Purpose

Water conservation is a global effort. That's why we seek out partnerships that are aligned with our commitment to conserve our Earth's water supply and promote water efficiency.

To make a difference on a global scale Moen has established partnerships with a number of environmental oraganizations and building councils.
