08 Apr Join Us in the Fight For Clean Water!
april 8, 2019
663 million people live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide, or, twice the population of the United States without access to life’s most basic human need. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep kids out of school and take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that make them sick.
When a community gets access to clean water, it can change just about everything. It can improve health, increase access to food, grow local economies, and help kids spend more time in school.
Here at Zandi K Salons, we believe that clean water is a human right and we are helping fight to get clean water for everyone, everywhere. We are lucky to partner with local Colorado Earth conservation advocates, Western Resource Advocates for Earth month along with our Aveda Global partner, Charity Water. Western Resource Advocates (WRA) work tirelessly to protect the West’s land, air, and water to ensure that vibrant communities exist in balance with nature.
100% of money raised at Zandi K Salons goes directly to WRA, specifically to help protect and repair our water system right here in our back yards! Sadly, population growth is shrinking limited water supplies and threatening to dry up our rivers and lakes. Climate change is increasing wildfires, drought, heat waves and jeopardizing diverse habitat and wildlife throughout the state, and energy development creates pressure and tradeoffs on our public and private lands causing concern for our air and water quality, wildlife habitat and public health!
WRA is a leader in protecting Colorado’s air, land and water. Their work to promote healthy rivers, with a focus on the Colorado River, protects numerous rivers and champions a sustainable water future for communities, wildlife, and agriculture. They work to advance clean energy through a robust cutting edge program promoting renewable energy, and reducing carbon emissions by closing coal fired power plants in the state. Their work on Western Land Conservation seeks to protect our communities and wildlife from oil and gas development – shaping regulations and laws for a responsible development. They are devoted to safeguarding the Colorado’s air, land and water for future generations to enjoy which is why we are so thankful to call them our Earth Month Partners!
