Ello is Celebrating World Kindness Day by Bringing Clean Water to Those in Need

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CHICAGO - Nov 07, 2019 - ​Ello Products has launched a line of custom water bottles and travel mugs to bring clean water to rural communities around the world.

The Ello Clean Water Partnership will provide improved drinking water and health outcomes to a community in Aitong, Kenya, through the installation of a solar-powered filtration system. 100% of proceeds from the limited-edition product line go directly to supporting the grassroots empowerment effort. This unique partnership leverages the skills of the designers and engineers at Ello to enhance the social enterprise model and reduce waste from single-use plastic. 

According to the UN, unsafe water and sanitation are now the single largest cause of illness worldwide. At least 2 million people die annually from water-borne diseases.

Micaela McCabe, Ello Designer, expressed her confidence in this partnership:

“Water is a vital resource and a human right; as a creative company, we want to make sure our skills and resources have the best possible impact. This summer, the Ello team visited our partners in Kenya to learn about their empowerment model and research how to best support it,” McCabe said.

Ello’s nonprofit partner, H2OpenDoors, has installed more than 30 of the patented SunSpring filtration systems around the world. The systems are powered by solar panels and a wind turbine, ideal for remote communities like Aitong. Once installed, the system will function as a water business, run by a council of local women who will receive training in both maintenance of the Sunspring, as well as mentorship in sales and marketing skills.

Derek Leatzow, Ello Engineer, believes this innovation will have a drastic impact both socially and environmentally:

“The Sunspring system that we are working with is an incredible piece of technology. It’s fully powered by renewable energy and can reduce the waste of 40,000 single-use water bottles PER DAY. In combination with the social impact model that H2OpenDoors uses, it’d be hard to find a more transparent or efficient way to do good in the world,” Leatzow said.

100% of profits from Ello’s supercute custom product line go directly to funding clean water. Shop the line and track the progress of the water system installation at elloproducts.com/water.
