EcoWater Canada Pledges Its Support for World Water Day 2010

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2010) - In celebration of World Water Day on March 22, 2010, EcoWater Canada will donate a portion from every sale in the month of March to help support AMREF Canada and the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health in their goals to bring clean, safe drinking water to people in Canada and around the world.

"We are very enthusiastic to be taking part in World Water Day this year says Paul Godin, President of EcoWater Canada. "With the help of our dealers across the country, a portion of EcoWater product sales in March will be donated to AMREF Canada and the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health, which we feel truly commemorate the essence of World Water Day. Our support will help improve access to clean water sources among vulnerable communities in Africa and support water education programs in Canadian Aboriginal communities." 

Designated by the United Nations in 1992, World Water Day is an international day of observance and action, drawing attention to more than 1 billion people worldwide that lack access to clean and safe water sources. The UN has chosen Communicating Water Quality Challenges and Opportunities as the theme for World Water Day 2010. For more information about World Water Day, visit www.worldwaterday.net

"Water is something we often take for granted." Says Godin "We drink it, cook with it, bathe in it and use it as a utility every day without thinking about how many people do not have access to clean and safe water. Join us on World Water Day and throughout the month of March to celebrate water and the vital impact this precious resource has on our daily lives."
