Because everybody deserves clean running water and sanitation in their homes. Over 2 billion people lack access to convenient, clean water and sanitation… a leading cause of disease and hardship in this world that disproportionately affects women and girls. When people have their most basic needs met, they can begin to thrive. Supporting clean in-home water systems has powerful impact in improving lives.
Unfortunately, in most developing countries the burden of collecting water usually falls on women and girls. They are responsible for all of the household needs for water required for cooking and cleaning. It is a time-consuming, physical hardship that often times is also dangerous. The time required…sometimes 5-7 hours each day… prevents women & girls from spending their days attending school or earning incomes.
We’re particular about the projects we support… they are not all equal and not all can free women and girls from this work and time. The majority of clean water projects end with a village pump or well… but the work should not end there. Women and girls are still tasked with walking, carrying heavy water and waiting in line all day. The projects we get behind bring running water directly into the home, giving families the same convenient access most of us have.
Everybody Water aka “water with a heart” is a socially-conscious business, focused on commitment to compassion, particularly towards people’s most basic need: water. With this in mind, Everybody Water donates 3% of our annual gross revenues to support clean water and sanitation infrastructure projects that bring running water, sinks, showers and toilets directly into homes for the first time… full solutions that hugely impact the lives of women & girls.
To date, we’ve donated exclusively to Water1st International because they do an amazing job at ensuring clean water and sanitation projects are sustainable, and are really smart about how they help bring clean water systems to people who do not have it. The rate of long-term success of these projects is rare and impressive… Everybody Water has traveled and seen the results firsthand. Water1st is selective in only bringing permanent clean water systems that bring running water, showers, and toilets directly into homes …not just village pumps that don’t fully solve problems! In-home solutions free women and girls from carrying water all day and gives them the time to attend school and earn incomes.
The projects we support are planned and built out by local people who can maintain them over time, offering lasting solutions. They also include sanitation systems that are also critical in keeping people healthy and can help protect water supplies from contamination. In many cases projects also include the purchase of land to protect watersheds for future generations.
We believe it is the responsibility of our brand to educate people on the lack of accessible clean water so many people in this world face, to shine a light on the disproportionate impact this has on to the success of women and girls, and to share information about solutions that exist such as the ones to which we donate. We encourage everybody to make a statement with our product about the importance clean water has as a basic equality in this world.
In addition to our annual donation, Everybody Water sponsors and supports youth education and engagement programs because youth is the future for change!
