Why 1 Billion?
In the winter of 2016, WATERisLIFE and New Age Beverages Co. got together to take on a huge problem: The World Water Crisis.
Every year, over one billion people are harmed by waterborne illnesses. But the SunSpring technology has the potential to kick these diseases to the curb.
Thus, our mission was born:
SAFE drinking water to 1 billion people by December 31, 2020.
Did You Know?
global citizens lack access to safe drinking water.
lack access to proper sanitation.
CLEAN WATER + HYGIENE = A STRONG ECONOMY
WOMEN AND GIRLS IN AFFECTED AREAS SPEND UP TO 6 HOURS PER DAY HAULING WATER
Only 1 out of 4 girls completes primary school in developing countries
2 out of 3 illiterate adults are women
For every 10% increase in female literacy, the economy grows .3%
So Why 1 Billion?
The World Water Crisis is a catastrophe for billions of people. In order to make a difference that reaches billions, we have to think in billions. It sounds like a big number…
But it only takes 100,000 SunSprings to quench the thirst of 1 billion people for at least 10 years.
