It is estimated that for more than one billion people safe drinking water is a problem – something we in the UK usually take for granted.
Contaminated water not only tastes bad but it causes diseases that are killing more children than HIV Aids and Malaria combined – nearly 2,000 children every day.
That’s why we’ve joined forces with P&G to help save one life every hour by 2020. Our goal for the next 12 months is to provide 100 million days of clean drinking water for people who desperately need it.
How we’re going to do it:
For every stickered pack you buy at Asda with the “1 pack = 1 day’s clean water” logo, P&G will donate a day’s worth of clean drinking water to people living in developing countries. See full terms and conditions.
The amazing water purification technology you can see in the video above was invented by P&G scientist Dr Phil Souter in Newcastle while he was trying to find ways to reuse the dirty water at the end of a laundry cycle.
Since this pioneering breakthrough, P&G water purification sachets have prevented an estimated 340 million days of illness and helped save more than 45,000 lives.
The water-purification sachets take just 30 minutes to turn dirty water into clean, drinkable water.
See us in action
The lack of clean drinking water in developing countries is a global crisis. Since its inception, the P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water programme has worked with more than 100 non-governmental organisations, charities and governments to raise awareness and deliver clean water.

You can help make a big difference to someone’s life – just by doing your weekly shop. Every time you buy one of these stickered packs P&G will donate one day’s clean drinking water.
Look out for stickered packs of Pampers, Gillette Pro-Glide blades, Pantene Aqualight shampoo and conditioner, Oral B Floss Action Power brushes – see P&G products on Asda.com. You can also donate using our secure web form.
With your help we will help to reach the goal to save one life every hour by 2020. Together we can make a real difference!
