Need for Clean Water in Haiti
Empowering Local Communities
Water is treated and bottled in 4 and 5 gallon jugs as part of its primary commercial operation. In addition to its regular commercial sales, each site will also deliver treated water in reusable plastic jugs to classrooms from October 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017. A new jug is placed in each classroom every school day so students can drink clean water.
