Box of Rain is focused on bridging the gap between corporations and nonprofits, so that we can all serve communities in need of water. We've seen the ways different groups of people can come together and make a change. Want to know how we do it?
Here are the four steps we take, starting from when a corporate partner sponsors Box of Rain's Safe Water Boxes, to the preparation and distribution of our Safe Water Boxes into targeted communities.
Step 1: Sponsor
While all of the steps are equally important, we would not be able to accomplish our mission if it wasn't for our great network of corporate partners. Because of these partners, we are able to distribute boxes across the country to nonprofit organizations and disaster relief organizations that serve in communities in need of water.
Step 2: Box Design
Now, we are ready to design our Safe Water Boxes! Our standard Safe Water Box has our "Box of Rain" logo, but corporations have the opportunity to customize their logo onto the boxes.
Our Safe Water Boxes are made of 100% recycled cardboard and offer practical uses after the water is consumed. This is the primary goal of Box of Rain: to provide a sustainable, eco-friendly approach to disaster relief.
Step 3: Packaging
The third step is to package the water from our production facility. The water inside our Safe Water Boxes is sustainably sourced, certified, and safe for a minimum of 3 years.
The water is:
1) purified by reverse osmosis
2) micron filtration
3) carbon filtration, plus 4) further protection comes vis ozonation.
The water in the Safe Water Box is tested monthly at our production facility by 3rd party SimpleLab, part of SimpleWater. (www.simplewater.us). Monthly test results are published on the Box of Rain website.
Step 4: 'Last Mile' Distribution
The final step encompasses Box of Rain's mission: to deliver safe water to those in need. This would not be possible without our network of nonprofit organizations and disaster relief agencies that are in the field supporting the needs of communities. Box of Rain empowers great organizations by providing our water boxes, so that together we can empower communities across the country.
