Ethos® Water Fund
It seems hard to imagine, but more than 1 billion people on our planet can’t get clean water to drink.
Ethos® Water was created to help raise awareness about this terrible crisis and provide children with access to clean water. Every time you buy a bottle of Ethos® Water, you contribute $.05US ($.10CN in Canada) to the Ethos® Water Fund, part of the Starbucks Foundation. So far more than $7.38 million has been granted to help support water, sanitation and hygiene education programs in water-stressed countries – benefiting more than 430,000 people around the world. In 2012 two new grants were made in East Africa, an important coffee-growing region for Starbucks.
