875 million people around the globe live without safe water. Unsafe water and poor sanitation account for 80% of all sickness and disease in the world. Every 20 seconds a child dies from illnesses caused by unsafe water and/or poor sanitation.StoryWood Bowties donates a portion of each sale to purchase M-100 chlorine generators. The M-100 is a water purification system that enables third-world countries to produce their own clean water. Using a 12-volt car battery and salt, the M-100 simply and safely produces chlorine gas that is injected into the water to kill waterborne pathogens.
StoryWood Bowties takes a portion of each sale to go towards planting and nursing a tree right here, in our very own community.
