a cup for cup commitment
As avid tea drinkers, we really appreciate clean water. But access to clean water can be all too scarce in many parts of the world. In fact, about one-ninth of the world does not have access to clean water, which has drastic effects on health and quality of life.
Because we believe that clean water is a resource every human being should have access to, we proudly support the BundiWater Project. They work alongside and train local communities in the Bundibugyo district of Uganda to repair existing water pumps and boreholes, while also developing a sustainable water management system through community and government involvement.
But this work needs financial support – and this is where we step in. Our commitment is cup-for-cup. That is, for every cup of tea we sell (or the equivalent in bags) we donate enough for a cup of clean water*. This adds up to hundreds of gallons every year! Together with your help, we can work towards a world where everyone has dependable access to clean water.
*Serge estimates that a day's worth of clean water costs about 1¢.
