Matt Damon may not be running for president, but he is changing the lives of millions of people internationally by cleaning up the world’s drinking water. Nearly 900 million out of the 6.7 billion people on earth don’t have access to clean water. Damon is the man with a plan to fix that.

In December of last year Damon declared his preference for a water bottle as a gift over the ever popular snuggie. The actor and activist is continuing his efforts to raise funds for his organization Water.org by again offering a limited edition water bottle. $10 from each purchase goes towards the mission.

The CamelBak Groove bottle is BPA free and one of the easiest ways possible to help reduce the trash in the oceans. Considering back in 2009 only 28% of plastic water bottles were recycled, investing in one for yourself makes you a human rights supporter and an environmental advocate. Isn’t it nice when one cause helps another?

Damon said about the issue, “I think what resonates with me most is when you see people living without clean water and they’re forced to scavenge for water and basically use up all of their time just doing that. You realize that they’re in such a crippling cycle of poverty; it’s just a death spin that they can’t possibly get out of.”

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
