After receiving the monetary award, the leadership team of Henkel’s Metal Packaging business sought potential charitable outlets consistent with its values and daily business activities.
“We loved the CW4K mission – to ensure clean, safe drinking water for children around the world,” said Laurie Andriate, corporate VP, Henkel Corporation - Metal Packaging. “Not only is CW4K doing great things, but the nonprofit is also using the most sustainable packaging container, an aluminum beverage can, to promote its message. CW4K demonstrates that clean and refreshing drinking water comes in cans, a container more sustainable than plastic.”
“Too many children are dying from a lack of safe drinking water,” said Greg Stromberg, founder & CEO of CW4K. “Henkel's kindness and support will allow us increased visibility and potential to develop, fund, and deliver clean, safe drinking water solutions at a faster pace.”
One of the ways CW4K drives awareness and raises funds for its water projects is through North American sales of drinking water packaged in aluminum bottles and cans.
