It’s summertime and we’re all surrounded by water frequently, whether it be a weekend at the beach, spending time at the neighborhood pool or keeping a S’well bottle full of cold water throughout the day. While we’re all enjoying the wonders of water, it’s important to take a minute to acknowledge that there are still nearly 748 million people in the world that do not have the access to clean water.
S’well knows the importance of water and how it impacts not only our bodies but also communities. That’s why this year S’well supported the U.S Fund for UNICEF Tap Project with a $100,000 donation. UNICEF works in more than 100 countries to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities. Whether by restoring access to clean water after a disaster or promoting safe hygiene practices in schools and communities, UNICEF is on the ground helping children in need.
Since 1990, UNICEF and its partners have helped more than two billion people gain access to safe drinking water. We still have a way to go but S’well is helping make progress possible. To find out more about how you can get involved visit www.unicefusa.org.
Here at S’well, we believe in generating a positive impact on the world. We achieve this by making eco-friendly products and contributing to charitable organizations. By helping those in need, we can help to create a cleaner, healthier, and happier world to live in. This year, we are excited to announce our partnership with the Whole Planet Foundation in honor of a holiday that is near and dear to the S’well mission, Earth Day!
For Earth Day, each member of the S’well team has made a pledge to reduce their carbon footprint. We know that by eating locally grown produce and walking to work, we can do our part in reducing these harmful emissions. We have also filmed our pledges in hopes to inspire people around us to take a look at their own carbon footprint. You can find all of the S’well videos on our twitter and instagram pages. In addition to our personal pledges, on April 22nd, we will be selling our limited-edition Earth Day S’well bottles.
These exclusive Earth Day S’well bottles, which are sold online, will retail for $30, and for every bottle sold we will donate $5 to the Whole Planet Foundation. These bottles can be found here. S’well is proud to support the fact, that 100% of the proceeds to the Whole Planet Foundation are used for micro loans to help fund female entrepreneurs in less-privileged communities. We believe that the empowerment of women is an important tool in raising these communities above the poverty line.
Charities like the Whole Planet Foundation are essential in the fight to end poverty around the globe. That is why S’well is also donating 5 of their special Earth Day bottles to the Whole Planet Foundation’s blog contest. By working with the Whole Planet Foundation, S’well is making the world a better place one bottle at a time.
