Together for bigger impact

Monday, September 3, 2018

Greencarrier and Solvatten have now joined forces to give long lasting help to especially women and children without clean water.

The Greencarrier Group is one of the Nordic region’s largest privately owned companies specialising in global, sustainable logistics solutions. Every year they set aside 1% of the profit to the Greencarrier Spirit Fund, funding local and global initiatives to make improvements for the environment and the society.  

The GreenCarrrier Spirit Fund provides better logistics solutions for Solvatten. Together we can make impact bigger and push progress towards a sustainable future for all.

“- Being sustainable in business means that we at Greencarrier care for our company, the people in it and for our customers and partners. But also that we take a larger responsibility than that, for the society in general and the future health of our planet. Joining forces with Solvatten and providing them with our sustainable logistics solutions, means that we directly contribute to their vision of a world where everyone can live a healthy and worthy life and that we can combine our business knowledge with our social and environmental goals.” says Stefan Björk, founder and owner of Greencarrier.

-“Our mission is to have reached 1 million families by 2030. To be able to achieve this we need the power of collaboration, so we are happy to see Greencarrier also sharing our vision about a sustainable future for all.” saysPetra Wadström, CEO and Founder of Solvatten.

Greencarrier and Solvatten in collaboration for safe water and better lives

New collaboration provides Solvatten for Syrian schools

Friday, April 13, 2018

Worldwide, people’s lives depend on water. Due to poverty, lack of infrastructure and ongoing conflicts, too many live in the scarcity of basic human needs. The seven-year Syrian war has affected millions of lives. A project called 1 drop 2 lives are dedicated to supporting children in need by providing them with Solvatten and milk.

In the north west of Syria, in the areas of Iblid and Latakia, there are more than 1,500 schools and 1,500 000 people suffering from limited access to clean water and nutrition. Idlib has become the largest remaining rebel stronghold in Syria, where experts predict the worst conflicts and battles ahead to take place. The project 1 drop 2 lives has come up with a package solution for organizations, companies and people who wish to help children in need. By ordering 100 units of lactose intolerance test kits for employees or members of an organization to take, one will contribute to a donation of 5 Solvatten units and 4000 glasses of milk for the schools in the area.

We hope that this project will bring hope and sheds of light to many lives affected by the conflict by providing children with clean water, nutrition and improved health!

Haiti Response

Thursday, June 15, 2017

For people living in places where there is limited infrastructure, safe water can be a matter of life or death. Especially for children under five. Two effective methods to prevent from falling sick or even dying from water born such as cholera and soil-transmitted diseases are to maintain good hygiene practice and use point of use water treatment.

Cholera is still a threat in Haiti. Children are the most vulnerable to this life-threatening disease, luckily cholera can easily be stopped with clean water and improved hygiene at home. The United Nations, (UN) is now intensifying their efforts to eliminate cholera by providing material assistance to people in need. The new UN approach to cholera in Haiti can be found here.

This is our contribution to the UN effort:

  • Solvatten given to children living at orphanages.
  • Solvatten given to the staff members of the orphanages (most are former beneficiaries of the program who went through the orphanage system) and their families.
  • Solvatten given to a primary school who work with the orphanages disabled children.
  • Solvatten given to a clinic to be distributed over time to patients, based on need.
  • Solvatten given for newborn nutrition program at the orphanage (to be distributed over time to mothers, based on need).

An innovative way to prevent cholera in Haiti

Monday, November 21, 2016

Safe water and improved hygiene is key to stop cholera from spreading in Haiti. Children are most vulnerable to the life-threatening disease, but cholera can easily be stopped with clean water and improved hygiene at home. We can help in this situation by distributing Solvatten. It has already been proven to help Haitian families in great need. Distribution by local partners will take place in the Les Cayes region of Haiti where the hurricane hit.

To contribute to this initiative please donate here, (and mark your donation “HAITI”).

Thank you for your support!
