What is tea without water?
World Water Day is only a few days away and I'm proud to partner with @NumiOrganicTea to talk about the importance of universal access to water. 💦 Numi's H²ope initiative works with farmers in developing countries from whom they source their tea and spices to create access to clean water and sewage facilities. The project has already provided turmeric farmers in Madagascar with twenty two wells, is working on the largest Fair Trade plantation in India, and plans to continue into Egypt, South Africa, and China in the next few years.
According to the U.N., over two billion people lack access to clean water in their homes, with some spending hoursss a day walking to and from the nearest clean water source. In Cape Town, South Africa, residents have been issued a seven gallon daily allowance due to the extreme drought that the country is facing. Seven gallons!
Join me back here for World Water Day on Thursday as I attempt to make it through the day using only seven gallons of water. I'm interested to see if it's remotely close to what I use on a daily basis with such a precious resource so readily available!
Numi has partnered with seven other brands that are using their businesses and influence to increase the availability of clean water around the globe. Swipe right to check them out. 👉🏼 #4H2OPE #Partner #WorldWaterDay
