December 2014 clean water campaign

by Maylynn Bloom |

On a trip to Laos and Cambodia in 2012, the Managing Director of Calibre8 Pty Ltd and founder of the Scrubba wash bag, Ashley Newland, became aware of the vast social, political and health implications that unsafe drinking water had in many remote parts of the world and decided to dedicate a portion of our proceeds to tackling this issue.

In June this year, the Scrubba wash bag donated USD15,000 towards a clean water system for a school in Bangladesh and we’ll be donating another USD10,000 towards a well in Ethiopia by the end of this year.

Your Facebook likes and responses have helped us reach our goal, so thank you for your continued support.

If you completed our clean water questionnaire and are still wondering what the average cost of providing clean water for 1 person in the world is, the answer is around USD30.

Thank you for your participation in helping us tackle the issue of unsafe drinking water around the world. To find out more about charity: water and how you can help, click here.
