Our Water Initiative
According to the 2016 Residential End Uses of Water Study, the average American shower uses 15.8 gallons and lasts 7.8 minutes at a flow rate of 2.1 gallons per minute. Crazy, right? We’re ultra conscious of the role we play in its consumption and want to do what we can to help.
For every Dae product purchased, we donate 15.8 gallons of water to charity: water—a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean water to developing countries. While access to this basic need may seem like a given, 785 million people live without it. charity:water works with local experts and community members to find the most sustainable solution to delivering safe drinking water, in turn helping to improve each population’s overall health and economy.
Dae’s 2020 donations proudly funded the construction of a well that will provide approximately 13 million liters of clean water to the people of Malawi over its lifetime. As one of Africa's most densely populated and least developed countries, Malawi is an ongoing project for charity:water. The majority of its citizens live in rural areas where water is scarce. As a result, many women and children spend hours each day walking to collect it. 70.3% of these rural areas also lack sanitation, so the country’s children face a high risk of water-related disease before they even reach the age of five.

- Challenge yourself to a five minute shower. It’s totally doable—promise!
