MUNA Joins the Pipe

MUNA promotes sustainable ideas and solutions. The MUNA  staff was inspired when they heard about the initiative of Join the Pipe and contacted the organisation. Join the Pipe was very excited about MUNA as well. Thanks to Join the Pipe all delegates will receive a Join the Pipe bottle at the tenth conference. A water tap will be available as well. We thank Join the Pipe for their support and we hope that all delegates will spread the word about this wonderful initiative.

 

 

What is Join the Pipe?

Join the Pipe is the first social network of tap water drinkers with the dream of building the longest water pipe in the world, long enough so that everyone, everywhere has access to clean drinking water. Join the Pipe promotes tap water drinking and helps developing nations gain access to clean drinking water and sanitation. We also work hard to bring awareness to the environmental impact of the production and waste of bottled water. With the sale of our tap water stations, refillable tap water bottles and donations, we finance water and sanitation projects in developing nations. See the story of Join the Pipe on the left and visit the website.

What is the Problem?

Due to poor infrastructure and services, 768 million people around the world do not have access to safe drinking water. That is approximately 1 in 10 people. Drinking unsafe water often results in diseases and can be fatal. Unsafe drinking water not only has an impact on health, but also on people’s ability to work or study. At the same time, in parts of the world where people do have access to drinking water, such as here in the Netherlands, a lot of valuable drinking water gets wasted. We often take it for granted that our tap continues running and tend to forget that water is a scarce resource, here and elsewhere.

Solution: Join the Pipe

Access to safe drinking water is a principal human need. Join the Pipe therefore raises funds for water projects through the sales of specially sustainable designed reusable bottles and carafes. The bottles represent parts of the longest water pipeline in the world – bringing water to those with no access, and symbolise as a reminder that access to water is not a given.
