Clean water isn't a luxury. It is a basic human right. But millions of people around the world don't live near a reliable, clean water source or have access to sanitary washing facilities, leaving them at risk of illness from waterborne diseases. Improving access to clean water is one of the most crucial and quickest ways to lift a community out of poverty. It reduces illness, allows children to return to school instead of collecting water and leads to improved agriculture and access to food.
To help change this, Brita Canada has teamed up with ME to WE, so that every specially-marked Brita purchase ensures clean water for someone who needs it. By purchasing specially-marked Brita products and by recycling your used products with TerraCycle, you can help provide clean water access a person in Kenya. With every 100 points you redeem for this gift, TerraCycle will send funds to ME to WE, which will be used to support global clean water projects.
Big change starts with simple, everyday choices.
