Water for All

Published On March 23, 2011 | By Jo Hensen | News

Here at Ban the Bottle we focus all our energy on eliminating bottled water and increasing tap water usage. But when you live in North America you can easily forget that many people around the globe don’t even have the option of bottled water or tap water – banning the bottle is the least of their worries.

While we are fortunate enough to have access to clean water every day, there is an big demand for clean water, sanitation and hygiene in communities around the world. More than 1.1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water. There are many people that spend up to 60% of their day walking to collect water – that’s astounding.

As I’m sure most of you are aware, yesterday was World Water Day. We strongly believe in the continuing message that World Water Day presents and have found a group that we would like to ask you to support – H2O for Life.

H2O for Life partners with schools, youth groups, businesses, faith organizations, clubs and individuals with schools in developing nations in need of water, sanitation and hygiene education.  There are several things you can do to help the clean water crisis  and one option (that ties in with our motto) is to purchase a H2O for Life reusable bottle! For only $10 you can purchase a bottle to add to your cabinet of reusable bottles or give as a gift. All proceeds help the cause and in turn you will be supporting two movements with one purchase when you buy your own reusable H2O water bottle here.

    It’s so sad that there are people worldwide without access to clean water, which is vital to life. I think we take clean water for granted sometimes! I know that I do. Thanks for posting and reminding us to be thankful for our clean water and letting us know that there is always something we can do to help!

    I, too, take for granted the clean water made available to me. I always would buy water bottles, but thanks to this blog, I will try to give back to the environment by stop buying plastic bottles and take advantage of tap water.
