Not Just Cookies is starting a new LifeStraw campaign, where a portion of cookie sales will help go towards providing LifeStraws to schools in Africa. We're excited about this new campaign and the ability to help provide clean drinking water through the Children's Environmental Literacy Foundation (CELF).
Lack of safe drinking water is a global health crisis. Each year, 443 million school days are lost due to water-related illness which keeps students from attending school.
Not Just Cookies LifeStraw Campaign
Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related illness, and more than 783 million people do not have access to an improved water source. Hundreds of millions more use municipal water systems that are poorly maintained and deliver
In addition, safe water is vital for economic growth. In many nations, water shortage is a cause of violent conflict. Without safe water, there is no sustainable future for much of the developing world.
Building on their existing LifeStraw water filtration technology, Vestergaard Fransden created theLifeStraw® Community. The LifeStraw removes 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, 99.999% of viruses, and 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites preventing waterborne illnesses - without the use of harmful chemicals. With your help, families around the world will have access to clean drinking water.
Not Just Cookies is donating 25 cents of every bag and 50 cents per dozen cookies sold to Children's Environmental Literacy Foundation (CELF). All of NJC's donations will go to CELF toward the purchase, distribution. training and repair of LifeStraw® Communityin Kenya. Every donation of $350 provides a school-based LifeStraw® Communitythat will enable 50 students to have clean water for four years.
