Earth Day is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about the environment, but what about the other 364 days? One of the most exciting aspects of being a distributor, is our ability to partner with companies that focus on being part of a greater good. Sustainability is an all year around focus via our partnership to offer you the EcoSmart® collection.
This collection includes over 150 sustainable options, for Earth Day or any day. We've even chosen one of our favorites as an additional perk, a bag that demonstrates a triple commitment, by reducing waste in the construction- using recycled water bottles. Additionally, this bag gives to 1% For The Planet, which one percent of EcoSmart® sales are donated to nonprofits like Well Aware and for April, 10% of the net proceeds of the bag will be applied to our year-long Give Back Campaign for The Poe Center
Based in Austin, Texas, Well Aware provides innovative and sustainable solutions to water scarcity and contamination for communities in East Africa. By funding and implementing life-saving water systems, the organization helps drive economic development and empowers communities.
Here's what Well Aware is working to change*:
+ One in seven people lack access to clean water
+ In sub-Saharan Africa, individuals walk an average 3.5 miles for clean water
+ Women and girls spend an average of six hours a day collecting water
+ Every 90 seconds, a child dies from a preventable waterborne disease
The numbers are breathtaking. The mission is critical. Our supplier partner is proud to support the work of this exceptional organization and as a distributor, owned by a Rotarian- we are supporting the efforts of Rotary International to eradicate diseases through access to clean water.
Kareece Sacco, Well Aware executive director, says the partnership is making a difference.
“It is such an honor to partner with PCNA. Your dedication to helping others and providing a clean source of drinking water has already enabled a lot of good in the world,” she says. “In just over a year-and-a-half, your support has provided lasting clean water to more than 4,000 people in our East Africa partner communities – completely changing their futures.”
Sacco also recognizes the role our distributor partners play. With every single purchase of an EcoSmart® product, they’re helping to create statistics that tell a different story. Less disease. Better education. Greater economic development. More hope.
“We’re really grateful for the support of your customers,” Sacco says. “And we look forward to seeing what more we can accomplish together!”
