Ecorazzi loves us some Thandi Newton! In the past, we’ve reported on a few of the wonderfully green deeds the eco-friendly Actress has done for the environment, like sending letters to well known celebs asking them to ditch their SUV’s for a greener set of wheels, and making a case for recycled clothes. So it should come as no surprise that Thandi is at it again and backing a new campaign to help provide clean water to people in Africa.
The campaign is sponsored by Volvic and World Vision who will supply ten litres of clean, safe drinking water for every litre of Volvic Plain or Volvic Touch of Fruit purchased. Thandi recently visited Mali and witnessed the problem first hand. She said:
“My trip to Mali was a humbling experience, and one that I will never forget. Having seen first hand the vital difference, clean, safe water makes to the lives of children, women and the wider community; I hope that people in the UK will get behind the ’1L-for-10L’ campaign and help generate the much needed supply of water, something we take for granted everyday.”
As a result of the 1L-for-10L project, wells are being dug in Ghana, Malawi, Zambia and Mali in 2008, generating over 1.7 billion litres of water in the first year alone. To find out more about this pretty incredible project, visit Drink1Give10.com. GO THANDI!!!!!!
