Purdys ‘Clean Water Project’ set to change even more lives this year
2nd annual chocolate bar fundraiser makes clean drinking water possible for thousands in rural cocoa-growing communities nd annual Clean Water Project.
The Clean Water Project, in partnership with the Cocoa Horizons Foundation, funds the purchase of LifeStraw Community water filters and associated hygiene and educational programs for rural communities with limited or no access to clean drinking water.
Retailing at $6 each, the 85 g milk chocolate and salted butter toffee bar is available across Canada and online starting March 26, 2018.
$2 from every bar purchased helps make safe drinking water a reality for thousands of people (especially children) in cocoa communities throughout Ivory Coast.
Purdys first launched the Clean Water Project in 2017 with the goal of raising enough funds to purchase 35 filters.

By making chocolates using only 100% sustainable cocoa, Purdys directly supports education programs, infrastructure projects, community development initiatives, access to health care for rural communities and many more such initiatives through their partnership with the Cocoa Horizons Foundation.
