GRIME KING X CHARITY WATER
Unsafe water kills more people each year than war and all other forms of violence combined. Water pollution occurs when harmful substances contaminate our rivers, lakes, oceans and streams. Water shortages are caused by a number of factors - droughts, floods, increased demand and overuse of water. According to the UN 5 billion people could be affected by water shortages by 2050 due to climate change.
Water scarcity could become apparent in developed countries, the demand in developing countries is on the rise the fastest. The UN states in a report published that the most positive message in the report, is the potential savings of such practices exceed the projected increase in global demand for water which would ease the dangers of conflict and provide better livelihoods for farmers and poverty reduction.
At Grime King we realised the usage and contaminating chemicals we were using contributed to the problem, therefore we decided to make the switch to a waterless solution. Also by collaborating with Charity Water a non-profit organisation that brings clean, safe drinking water to developing countries and contributes 100% of donations to the cause we believe this is is a ideal partnership as as our aim is to not only save water but to help provide water to those in need.
