At Blossom Bottles, we believe in clean drinking water for everyone. When you buy a reusable water bottle from our store, not only are you helping to keep plastic single-use water bottles out of our oceans, but you are also helping to provide clean drinking water to a community in need.
It's easy to buy a reusable water bottle and take for granted that you have clean, filtered water to put into it. But, in some communities across the world, finding clean drinking water and transporting it home is a day's work. We want to help create a world where everyone has free, easy access to clean drinking water for hydration, sanitation, and agriculture.
Clean water is the most basic and vital necessity for health and life itself, and is a human right. That's why we chose to work with the non-profit organization The Water Project. For every bottle purchased, we donate $1 to The Water Project to contribute to their efforts to provide clean water to those in need in communities across sub-Saharan Africa.
The Water Project works closely with the local people who live in the communities where a water effort takes place through every step of the project, to truly listen to the needs of each individual community. Instead of just installing a well without consulting the people who live in the area, The Water Project takes into account the specific attributes of the region and the desires of the locals to determine what type of water project to implement. The Water Project creates drilled wells, sand dams, rainwater catchment systems, hygiene and sanitation, and spring protection systems, depending on what would work best for the individual situation.
The Water Project explains in their own words, "The water crisis is real. It’s affecting women, children, families and farmers. Women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa are spending hours a day fetching dirty water which leads to illness and disease, robbing entire communities of their futures. Lack of access to safe water and proper sanitation limits education and food production, it harms health and leads to a cycle of poverty.
The Water Project works closely with local in-country teams and partners to develop clean water programs alongside these heroes. We carefully select implementing partners who have long term relationships and commitments to the people they serve."
