It’s easy to take water for granted. It comes out of every faucet, it’s sold at every grocery and convenience store, and it’s even sitting in pools in our backyards.
But for some people across the world, it takes hours to get to water, and drinking water is even harder to find. Globally, 663 million people don’t have access to clean drinking water. As a result, 1 in 5 children under the age of 5 dies each day from waterborne diseases.
We’re working with WATERisLIFE to help bring clean drinking water to every part of the world.
What does WATERisLIFE do?
WATERisLife is dedicated to increasing the world’s availability of healthy drinking water by offering purification solutions to impoverished areas. Their products include a straw filter and two bucket filter systems. They also build and repair hand pumps.
How is Evive Station getting involved?
We’re proud to help WATERisLife expand their reach by donating a portion of our proceeds toward their straw filters. These straws hang around a child’s neck and work just like a normal straw does – except for one amazing feature. Kids suck in dirty water, and like magic, the inner filtration system cleans and purifies the water, making it safe to drink by the time it reaches their mouths.
The straws last an average of one year. That’s 365 days of clean, healthy drinking water for someone in need. The WATERisLIFE straw makes clean water easily accessible anywhere you go.
So far, WATERisLIFE has delivered over 70,000 straws to 33 countries across the world including Haiti, Ghana, Nigeria, and Pakistan. With the help of Evive and countless other organizations and volunteers, WATERisLIFE is helping save lives and transform communities.
