I'm so excited to be partnering with GiveMeTap - an ingenious, ethical & inspiring business started by a man on a mission, Edwin Broni-Mensah! Over the last 6 months, I have spent hours, days if not weeks sat in coffee bars across town, sipping away at a bottle of water, rather than freely guzzling so as not to end up buying a new bottle everywhere I go, and avoiding the slightly guilty "please can I have a free fill up" line! I've most definitely become more conscious of the value of water! And I also thought... there has got to be a solution. Cue Edwin's solution....
Each bottle you buy gives a person in Africa 5 years of clean drinking water. Plus you get free access to water refills from local cafes/restaurants.
Each bottle purchased gives someone in Africa 5 years of clean water.
Buying a bottle will not only help to fund clean water projects in Africa but you will be able to get free ups from selected locations across town and you'll be flying the Agora flag :). Once 25 bottles have been ordered, they will go into production!
Each Agora x GiveMeTap bottle that you purchase provides a person in Africa with life-changing access to clean drinking water for 5 years. See the difference you will make.
What should be a basic human right is a daily struggle for millions of people living in Africa. Here at GiveMeTap, we believe in a simple idea; 'water for everyone'. Clean water changes everything, and we're excited to solve this global problem in our lifetime, with the support of more than 70,000 people.
Five years ago, the dream of getting a six-pack was all Edwin could think about. As his water consumption began to increase, so did his difficulty in finding free tap water on the go. The constant rejection from local cafes and restaurants combined with stories of his father growing up with little to no access to clean water set Edwin on a mission. What was supposed to be a six month challenge transformed into an epic journey and commitment to solving the global water crisis.
Our bottles have transformed and evolved many times over the last few years. But the one thing that will never change is their impact. Every bottle gives a person in Africa 5 years of clean drinking water.
For every bottle sold, we donate 20% of the revenue directly to our NGO partners in Africa. We then work with them to dig boreholes and install pumps in struggling rural communities.
Since 2011, we’ve sold 65,545 bottles and installed 20 water projects across Africa, changing the lives of 16,199 people.
GiveMeTap bottles combined with our free water network allows individuals and businesses alike to dramatically reduce their plastic waste.
