BLUE TAKES AIM AT GETTING CLEAN DRINKING WATER TO THE 300 MILLION AFRICANS WHO DON’T HAVE IT
I turned on the faucet today and clean water spewed from the tap. But not everyone has that luxury — especially 300 million Africans who rely on a series of filters and bottled goods to get clean water. More than a handful of companies have aimed to address the clean water supply on the second most-populated continent. One company, Blue, offers “Waterpods” that equip retail stores with a mini version of a water kiosk. Now their ‘wares are in over 100 stores across half a dozen countries.
