20 August 2019

Get to know cannedwater4kids.org (CW4K) and their drinking water packaged in aluminum bottles and cans. Whether you are looking to support corporate or personal sustainability goals, or believe in giving back, this product accomplishes both. CW4K canned water is the perfect replacement for the minimally recyclable plastic water bottles.

“Every time you buy & drink our premium water, you are making a difference,” said Greg Stromberg, CW4K founder, and CEO. “We call our water ‘Drinking water - with a purpose.’ That’s because it keeps you hydrated; it tastes great and is infinitely recyclable. Plus, 95% of all money collected by CW4K from the sale of this water goes to help fund & deliver sustainable clean drinking water programs worldwide.”

“Not only are aluminum cans the single-most recycled beverage package in the United States, but they are also infinitely recyclable – returning as new cans on store shelves in as little as 60 days. Few containers can say that,” said Peter Gorman, CW4K Board Member and CMO.

Companies like INX International, Novelis, Sherwin-Williams, Roeslein and Stolle Machinery, to name a few, have added the canned drinking water to their programs. Several years ago, Washington University, in St Louis, MO replaced their plastic water bottles with CW4K canned drinking water. Today, their commitment to sustainability on-campus continues.

Upscale hotels, like the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in California and Radisson Red in Minneapolis, MN. Include CW4K water in rooms for their guests. CW4K drinking water in aluminum bottles and cans is also available in America’s national parks like Yosemite, Denali and Mesa Verde.

Over the years, the nonprofit has helped fund and deliver sustainable well and water purification solutions to the highlands of Guatemala as well as Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, Africa.

They’ve helped the American Red Cross and others in providing disaster relief to Japan, Haiti, New Jersey, Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. They have sent truckloads of disaster relief drinking water sent to the people of Flint, Michigan. They also provided safe water to a school in Lannon, WI, whose water tested positive for Ecoli and needed help until the danger was gone.
