The Starbucks Foundation & Planet Water Foundation
Planet Water Foundation’s partnership with Starbucks started in 2011 and with support of The Starbucks Foundation, has grown to cover more than 10 countries. Together with Starbucks partner (employee) volunteers in each country, we have been able to install AquaTower systems that increase access to safe, clean drinking water for coffee-growing communities and other underserved communities in Asia and Latin America.In addition, our partnership has supported clean, safe drinking water access in the wake of emergencies and natural disasters.
