Emergen-C transforms more than just water. We believe that access to clean and safe drinking water is a basic human right. Because clean water is so important to our product, we believe that having access to clean and safe drinking water is a cause that is fundamental to our brand values and it is a cause that we are passionate about. We are excited to announce we have made a multi-year commitment to helping to bring clean and safe drinking water to communities in Ethiopia through a partnership with charity: water.
