Blue Can Water

According to recent UN estimates, 2.5 million people are currently in need of food assistance after Super Typhoon Haiyan displaced millions of people and destroyed critical infrastructure including municipal water and filtration systems.

Current relief efforts have been transporting and distributing water in plastic bottle packaging.  Blue Can Water, a US-based start up creating a clean alternative to plastic bottles has opened up its warehouse inventory of emergency canned water stores to help the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan.  In addition to delivering clean water to those most in need, utilizing canned water would:

  • Provide resistance to spoilage and an extended shelf life many times greater than plastic bottle storage systems
  • Protect life saving water from toxic particles such as phthalates that are leached by plastic bottles when exposed to heat, especially under the equatorial sun
  • Preserve the pristine corals & ecosystems of the Philippines from plastic bottle pollution
  • Provide recycling income to survivors
