Did you know that one billion people on Earth do not have access to medically safe drinking water? A Croatian startup is on a mission to change that!

Free Water Project, that we wrote about here, has reached 50% of its $35,000 goal needed to fund their admirable campaign since its launch on May 29. There are still 17 days left, so make sure to back the campaign here.

Freewa is a Zagreb-based startup that maps the locations of free drinking water in order to make drinking water accessible to everyone and reduce plastic pollution.

Part of the project is Freewa glass bottle that comes with an eco felt bag, both 100% recyclable. You can start adding your own sources to map and buy your bottle here, or get it for free if you back the campaign.

The bottle has “thank you” written in 12 different languages on it, which was the founders’ way of saying thank you to everyone who is helping save the environment.

When you download the app, you can take photos and add the location of each source, and add stories connected to its location, which also means that you can read interesting stories and gather historical facts.

The founders Goran Ladisic, Vedrana Vrabec, Mihaela Ivanec and Marko Rasic say that their love of nature brought them together, and a firm belief that they need to protect this beautiful planet, as well as the idea that every human being has the right to use the gifts that nature had given us, clean water being one of them.

Download the app for Android and iOs phone and like Freewa on Facebook.
