Access to water and sanitation in the household and workplace is a basic human right. Yet, in many tea estates in India, this is still work in progress. Today, people remain vulnerable to diseases, leading to an extra financial burden from healthcare, and have to spend large amounts of time collecting water.”

In Kenya, we’re supporting a water filtration programme that will provide tea communities with safe drinking water and help to reduce the incidence of waterborne disease.
These water filters also eliminate the need to burn wood or charcoal to boil water for purification, helping to improve the health of people in our sourcing communities while cutting carbon emissions and protecting local forests.
