True story the other day. A girl in the yoga class that I had just taken had just finished pouring filtered water from the tap into her cup. She kept the water flowing, while she sipped and talked to her friend. I literally went around her and shut the tap. She likely thought I was rude but I don’t care. Water deserves our respect.
I swear that I have four glam water bottles in my house. And, I use them well, believe me. Those kombucha bottles – I save them. I am literally toting one with me right now, full of chlorophyll
water, to and from the sauna and yoga studio.
I put a huge importance on water. I live on the ocean and I look out and I know that I am very lucky to live where I live. I do whatever I can to reserve water in my home.
Did you know that one in ten people – that’s 663 million people globally – lack access to clean water (1) with 80 per cent of illnesses in the developing world linked to poor water and sanitation (2). It is crazy to hear something like that and its probably because we are so fortunate to have access to clean water, on the daily.
I love what Brita.ca says on their website that says it all:
“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.”
That’s why I love this new Limited Edition ME to WE Water Bottle from Brita. Not only is it a statement water bottle, every specially-marked Brita® purchase ensures one year of clean water for someone who really needs it. Brita® Canada is also continues their partnership with the WE movement. Their collaboration is in an effort to make sustainable changes through initiatives like Filter for Good™ where each purchase of a specially marked Brita product supports the drilling of a borehole in Irkaat, Kenya to provide the community access to clean water. To date, Brita has provided 23,624 people 1 year of clean water through this change initiative.
