Scrubba donate $15,000 to provide drinking water to a school in Bangladesh

Access to clean drinking water and proper sanitation saves lives in developing countries and can help education and the local economy.  The team at the Scrubba wash bag are pleased to announce that they have donated USD15,000 to charity: water. The donation will fund the plumbing of a school water system in Bangladesh that will provide clean water and vital hygiene and sanitation training to the students and 750 people in the neighboring area.

The team at the Scrubba wash bag would like to thank all our customers over the last 2 years and everyone who supported our recent social media campaign where we committed to donating $1 per new Facebook like and $20-$100 for photos and videos sent to us by our supporters.  The following are a handful of our supporters who sent in photos of themselves using the Scrubba wash bag:

     

"This donation of $15,000 will be first of many significant water projects that the Scrubba wash bag will support in the near future" said managing director and patent attorney Ash Newland. "The current project will take 18 months to complete and we will provide updates on the project as it moves forward.  At the end of the 18 months, we will be able to provide photos and GPS coordinates of the project".
