TotesForWater

Read Mission Statement

Every day, 1,400 kids under the age of 5 die from water-related illnesses. Let's help change that!

I am a mother of 3 and I can't live with that statistic. For me that number needs to be as close to zero as we can get it! I am the founder of totesforwater and I'm on a mission to bring clean water to those in need. The bags that I turn into totes have already had a big journey - they travel from Africa, South and Central America full of coffee beans, then I up cycle the bags into functional totes with all profits going to charity:water. Charity:water then takes the money and works with local people to drill wells in under-developed countries. With access to clean water, water-related illnesses decrease, little girls are saved hours of walking to collect water allowing more time in school and mothers have a better chance of improving the lives of their families. I hope you choose to be a part of my journey by purchasing a tote or donating to my campaign:) Water changes everything!

Each burlap tote bag is unique and special.
Lined with cotton and sewn with sturdy handles.
This is the gift that keeps on giving!
Made with love in Bend, OR.
