Earth Day Spotlight: Meet Our Nonprofit Partner, Well Aware


Earth Day Spotlight: Meet Our Nonprofit Partner, Well Aware

While Earth Day is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about the environment, we’re focused on sustainability all year around. Our EcoSmart® collection, for example, includes over 150 sustainable options, for Earth Day or any day.

But products are only part of a bigger commitment. Through a partnership with 1% For The Planet, one percent of EcoSmart® sales are donated to nonprofits like Well Aware.

Based in Austin, Texas, Well Aware provides innovative and sustainable solutions to water scarcity and contamination for communities in East Africa. By funding and implementing life-saving water systems, the organization helps drive economic development and empowers communities.

Here's what Well Aware is working to change*:

+ One in seven people lack access to clean water

+ In sub-Saharan Africa, individuals walk an average 3.5 miles for clean water

+ Women and girls spend an average of six hours a day collecting water

+ Every 90 seconds, a child dies from a preventable waterborne disease

The numbers are breathtaking. The mission is critical. And it’s why we’re so proud to support the work of this exceptional organization.

Kareece Sacco, Well Aware executive director, says the partnership is making a difference.

“It is such an honor to partner with PCNA. Your dedication to helping others and providing a clean source of drinking water has already enabled a lot of good in the world,” she says. “In just over a year-and-a-half, your support has provided lasting clean water to more than 4,000 people in our East Africa partner communities – completely changing their futures.”

Sacco also recognizes the role our distributor partners play. With every single purchase of an EcoSmart® product, they’re helping to create statistics that tell a different story. Less disease. Better education. Greater economic development. More hope.

“We’re really grateful for the support of your customers,” Sacco says. “And we look forward to seeing what more we can accomplish together!”
