Part of how you and I can create change, as busy moms who often make the household purchases, is to change where we spend our money. There are many, many fair trade or social good companies who make accessories and purses and they are wonderful, but I hardly ever spend money on myself. That’s why I get so excited when I find social good items (as I like to call them) that my family can use everyday and I can easily and affordably replace my existing brand.
Everly is an all-natural, 0 calorie, sugar free and preservative free drink mix. They come in the flavors peach mango (my favorite), green tea passion fruit and pomegranate maqui berry. For every box of Everly purchased, they provide a packet of a life-saving mix called oral rehydration salts to treat children sick with waterborne disease.
“1.8 million people die every year from [waterborne] diseases (including cholera); 90% are children under 5, mostly in developing countries.”- World Health Organization, 2013
Oral Rehydration Salts rapidly rehydrate victims of waterborne diseases. These packets save lives.
Everly provides the funds to the non profit ColaLife for the production of these ORS packets which are produced in Zambia by Zambians. These packets come in a kit that also contains zinc supplements and soap which helps treat diarrhea.
Put Everly in your lunch boxes, serve it at get-togethers, drink it at the gym. You can help reduce the number of people who die from waterborne diseases by a simple drink.
