We’re making a splash for water conservation
For the first time in history, nine out of ten people around the world have clean, safe water to drink. We’re joining the global fight to reach the last one in ten who still don’t.
This World Water Day, we’ll be raising money for Water Aid, one of the world’s leading clean water charities. We’ll also be dressing down in blue in return for donations as well as hosting our very own Blue Bakeoff – the best blue bake wins a prize!
Why we’re raising money for Water Aid
On April 1, English businesses will be able to take advantage of one of the biggest opportunities to save in years. The water market will open up to competition and businesses will be able to choose their own water supplier instead of being forced to pay a local monopoly-holder.
We’ve been beavering away to make sure that English businesses can benefit from water market deregulation, but it’s important for us to remember that not everybody in the world has access to clean, safe water. 10% of people still struggle to find water that won’t harm their children, and it’s easy for us here in wet and rainy Britain to forget that things like bottled water, village ponds, and garden fountains are relative luxuries.
If you’d like to join us in supporting World Water Day (and we hope you will!) you can find out more at the Water Aid website or by searching online for the hashtag #Blue4Water.
