Unilever Teams Up With Walgreens On Water Charity Initiative
Unilever has teamed up with US pharmacy chain Walgreens on a charity initiative that will see clean water delivered to communities in rural Kenya.
As part of the initiative, when a consumer purchases a select Unilever product, five gallons of water will be supplied. Both companies are hopeful that the initiative will see up to 15 million gallons of clean water donated.
“At Unilever, we believe a purpose-driven business can drive profit and positive social impact,” said Todd Tillemans, Corporate SVP, President Customer Development, Unilever.
“This partnership is yet another proof point of our commitment to creating a bright future for the next generations, and is an example of our continued work to build a movement nationwide that inspires Americans to take small actions every day that can add up to making a big difference.”
