Who is WATERisLIFE?
WATERisLIFE is a leading global water charity that focuses on providing clean water, hygiene, and sanitation programs across the world. They are currently active in 45 countries.
What does WATERisLIFE do in their target countries?
WATERisLIFE has built out a partnership with (New Age, and) Innovative Water Technologies to bring SunSprings (portable water treatment plans that crank out over 10,000 gallons of clean water PER DAY) to communities around the world. The focus of WATERisLIFE’s activities is to implement this cutting-edge technology, harnessing its potential to impact more people, more efficiently.
What is a SunSpring?
The SunSpring, founded by Jack Barker, Innovative Water Technologies, is the only solar water treatment system on the planet that is WQA Gold Seal Certified to the US EPA Standard for microbiological water purifiers. It is a stand-alone and self-contained solar and wind-powered filtration unit with an automated self-cleaning maintenance system. Bet you can’t say that ten times fast.
What does it do?
Using its proprietary GE nanotube filtration technology, the SunSpring removes 99% of particulate matter, turbidity, bacteria, viruses, and cysts dirtying any water source, from murky rivers to buckets of rainwater. One SunSpring can filter up to 5,000 gallons of clean water per day for 10 years and beyond. Splish-splash.
How many SunSprings have been installed thus far?
There are already 400+ SunSpring units filling up cups around the globe. And while children under 5 get a renewed chance at life, SunSpring units help a community focus on growth through healthcare, economy, and education.
What kind of micro-economic impact can SunSprings have on impoverished communities?
Imagine a village that charges its people five cents for a ten-gallon jug of water. While that number seems minute, it can provide enough profits to lift a community out of poverty and into recovery. The SunSpring machine also serves as a power source where citizens can charge their cell-phones for just a penny or two. The SunSpring redefines microenterprise in terms where entire communities transform
How was the WATERisLIFE and New Age partnership formed?
New Age and WATERisLIFE share the goal of impacting the greatest number of people possible, as effectively as possible. In reviewing the amazing work that WATERisLIFE has done over the past decade, New Age & WATERisLIFE came together to do something no one has ever done – create a product in which 100% OF PROFITS are donated back to the charity.
How does that work, are 100% of profits ACTUALLY donated back?
2019 signifies the first year we’re marketing this product on a national basis. The structure is quite simple, New Age sells the product as it would any other in the portfolio, collects the revenue, and cuts WATERisLIFE a check (on a monthly basis) to put toward funding more SunSpring units around the world.
