In honor of World Water day last week, here is a Cleveland-based non-profit focusing access to clean and fresh water in Northeast Ohio and around the globe.
From the Drink Local.Drink Tap website:
The Drink Local. Drink Tap.(TM), Inc. focus is to reconnect people with local water in tangible activities. These activities include educational events, beach cleanups, World Water Day celebrations, public speaking, art and film making. A collective change in the understanding of the ACCESS to clean, fresh water and compassion towards others can be fostered through educating individuals within the United States, especially in Northeast Ohio. Issues surrounding the access of fresh water are taught through local activities and global projects (Making Waves from Cleveland to Uganda). Individual water re-connection occurs through our Wavemaker Program.
Drink Local. Drink Tap.(TM), Inc. is a not for profit enterprise. DLDT began at the Cleveland Sustainability Summit in 2009 as a volunteer group and has quickly grown into its own enterprise. Volunteer team members have dedicated countless hours to cleaning up beaches, raising awareness through volunteer activities, and developing a plans to bring clean drinking water to a schools in East Aftica. We work with schools and communities locally to reconnect to our water wealth becoming water stewards and share with others in need.
