We hope you join Tea Drops in discovering the “Thirst is Real” this Earth Day, April 22nd! All week long leading up to Earth Day (April 15-April 22nd), follow us as we dive deeper into ways we can all help the clean water crisis’ locally and globally. You’ll meet some members of our community, sharing how they are doing their part, including friends and customers of Tea Drops, and our clean water partner, Thirst Project! We’ll be giving away prizes, sharing trivia, jaw dropping facts, and more!
Some background, if you didn’t know… with every box of tea sold, we donate clean water to those in need through Thirst Project. Because the clean water initiative is so close to the heart of Tea Drops, we feel responsible to shed light on the issue and the ways we can help. After all, having clean and safe water is important to us all, because we rely on water to do so many things every day! For example, worldwide, agriculture accounts for 70% of all water consumption. Crops and livestock must have water to grow. When a community has a close, safe water source, locally-grown food provides for a sustainable food source.
Brushing our teeth, doing laundry, and going to the bathroom are just some of the ways we take water for granted, but so much goes into that. Water is a fundamental human necessity. Every person needs at least 20 to 50 liters of clean, safe water a day for drinking, cooking, and simply keeping themselves clean. Waterborne Disease (diseases caused by drinking dirty or contaminated water) is World's Leading Killer. The World Health Organization says that every year more than 3.4 million people die as a result of water related diseases, making it the leading cause of disease and death around the world.
Polluted water isn't just dirty, it also kills.
Ya see what we mean? It’s a big deal, and the Thirst is very real! Join us on the journey to clean water for all!!
