Today, 785million people around the world don’t have access to clean water. The majority live in isolated, rural areas –the same areas growing our coffee.
It’s wrong that while we enjoy the purest filtered water in our coffee, the communities at the end of its supply chain face a water crisis.
This is why we’re delighted to say that we’re now supporting Project Waterfall –a charity working to end the water crisis in our lifetime.
What Project Waterfall does Project Waterfall brings clean water, sanitation and education to coffee-growing communities across the world. Regardless of where a community is, or how big it is.
Project Waterfall’s aim is to implement tangible and sustainable solutions that create access to water and improve the quality of it. Since 2011, they’ve raised over £1 million and changed more than 50,000 lives in Nicaragua, Tanzania, Rwanda, Vietnam, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia.
How Red Box is supporting and how you can support too Going forward, we’ll be charging 0.25p for every paper cup used and pass on the proceeds to Project Waterfall to help them bring clean water, sanitation and education to coffee-growing communities. The charge also encourages us all to reduce our waste.
We’d love your support so we can donate as much as possible to this great cause. If you want to learn more about Project Waterfall’s work, then head to their website- http://www.projectwaterfall.org/ where they have case studies and stories from many of their recent projects.
