Water. It is precious. It is vital. In fact it is a necessity.
It is the right of every human to have access to a source of clean drinking water. Unfortunately there are people for whom a sanitary water source is not part of their everyday reality. We continue to do our part to help change that. At Whistler Water we: start at home, educate, act, and dig deep. Our impact? It’s a work in progress, but we’re seeing some amazing results and we’re inspired to continue. But we don’t stop there.
Step one of our effort relates to water protection. For our pristine glacial source to remain pure, the surrounding environment must as well. If we allow our sacred wilderness to be turned our into a landfill, we forgo the purity of that environment. By acting mindfully, consuming considerately, and ensuring that the packaging of the products we purchase can be collected to be used again we help to greatly reduce landfill. Less landfill, more pristine earth, cleaner aquifers. It is up to individuals to exert our own responsibility but we can all assist.
With our Pledge to Recycle, we hope to educate and engage. Join us!
Free The Children
Whistler Water knows that great change comes from great leadership. When we met co-founders Craig Kielburger and Marc Kielburger, we knew we’d met change agents. They’ve inspired a team at Free the Children and built a program that encourages youth leadership, and is built upon the foundational principle of opportunity for all.
Whistler Water is a proud sponsor of Free The Children, and a passionate supporter of their Adopt a Village program, where access to clean water is one of the four pillars to a sustainable future.
Are you a young person, or do you know a young person who is ready to make a difference? Free the Children and the associated Me to We and We Day grow circles of young, active, passionate change agents. We Day is a great place to start. We hope to see you there!
Quest Food Exchange
Vancouver, British Columbia is consistently listed as a city with a very high standard of living. It has been ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities, consistently, for more than ten years. But Vancouver is not a city without poverty. The “Lower Eastside” of Vancouver is the home of many of Vancouver’s homeless and displaced. Quest Food Exchange operates a food service on the Lower Eastside that allows participants to “shop” for grocery items. Whistler Water donates our water to Quest to help ensure that lower income Vancouverites can access affordable, healthy food and excellent water.
When disaster strikes, lives are turned upside down. Damaged infrastructure means that people have to do without many things – but water is at the top of the hierarchy of needs. That’s why Whistler Water has been a supporter of disaster relief efforts in Japan, The Philippines and even close to home in Slave Lake, Alberta. We have donated water and worked closely with transportation partners and international aid agencies to help get water to the people who need it. Our staff have volunteered their time and even worked around the clock to make product available quickly.
Community, Charity and Schools
The list is long! We support a great number of charity fundraisers and community groups with water donations. We also have a micro-fundraising and recycling program that has been embraced by select schools in the Vancouver area.
When you purchase Whistler Water, you support these fine programs and organizations. We thank you!
