Everybody Water is proud to serve as the official water sponsor for JDRF One Walk Boston taking place on September 28, 2019 at the DCR Hatch Shell!
Everybody Water is a local, women-owned beverage startup available in select New England stores and online by subscription with the sustainable mission to spark a social impact movement that will elevate awareness and build a community of consumers and businesses determined to end the global water crisis.
Today, more than 2.5 billion people worldwide do not have access to clean water and a simple toilet. As a result, more than 200 million women and girls are expected to carry every drop of water their families need, and in turn, receive no education as they have no time to attend school.
Everybody Water donates 3% of gross sales to their exclusive nonprofit partner, Water1st International, who invests in high quality clean water systems in developing countries, and empowers local communities to independently own and operate them.
Megan and Kim have traveled extensively to fully understand the implementation of completed water and sanitation projects, and have seen first-hand the tremendous impact they have, especially for women and girls. In partnership with Water1st International, their team is able to support only the highest, most sustainable life-changing projects that have a lasting effect worldwide.
A pump in a village is not enough. Studies have proven that, in order to give women and girls the resource of time to obtain education and earn an income, a true solution must include piped water, showers and toilets in homes to eliminate the burden of carrying water. In contrast to a Band-Aid solution, full water and sanitation systems are the first step in breaking the cycle of poverty—giving people, communities, and businesses the ability to thrive.
In addition, Everybody Water is also dedicated to the reduction of plastic with their eco-friendly carton packaging.
According to TappWater.co, Americans used 50+ million plastic bottles in 2017, however our country’s recycling rate for plastic is only 23%, which means 38+ billion water bottles are wasted each year.
Everybody Water’s cartons are 100% recyclable. The paper in the paperboard is a renewable resource sourced from responsibly managed forests and certified by the FSC, with a bio-based cap sourced from sugarcane.
