Imagine providing five years of clean water for one person in the developing world. If you buy one of these limited-edition chalices, designed by artists in the Philippines, India, and Mexico, you can. (They’re sold at LCBOs and online at stellaartois.com/water.) .
I went without water for six hours, which is how long many people spend a day walking to collect it. I actually thought it would be easy—until five minutes in and it’s all I thought about. That, and the sobering reality that these people, who are mostly women and children, must devote so much of their head space to collecting something as simple as H20. It’s not an option for them. .
@StellaArtois and water.org are aiming to provide 3.5 million people with long-term, sustainable access to clean water by 2020. This is a baby step, but I’m proud to help.
