One of the most savvy and effective green groups out there, Green for All, is partnering with Sigg USA and hip-hop artist Wiz Khalifa for the "Keep It Fresh" public education tour, coming to campuses across the county. The campaign seeks to raise awareness about "the crisis-level water shortages, inspire personal action around water usage and advocate for improving local water situations." If you help spread the word, you can win an iPad 2!
Why is this important? To begin with, industrial pollution in developing countries is releasing hazardous chemicals that impact vital water resources. In places such as China and Thailand, poisons from textile production has seeped into the water supply and has been linked with high rates of cancer. Right here at home, 36 states are expected to experience water shortages within the next five years.
If you visit the Keep It Fresh Facebook page you can possibly win an iPad 2 and Sigg bottles designed especially for the campaign. For more information, please visit here.
Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, CEO of Green For All, said in a press release:
"We are proud to partner with the Campus Consciousness Tour featuring Wiz Khalifa for the 'Keep It Fresh' campaign to raise awareness about our clean water crisis and the economic opportunity provided in protecting our fresh water supply. Access to clean water isn't a future problem, it's a current problem facing many of us, particularly, many of our nation's low-income communities and communities of color. I am excited about this partnership's potential to create change through action."
