Education for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Studies have been conducted that show that Women make up only 28% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). As Engineer's we have first hand experience of this and can say that approximately 1 in 5 people in our field are female.
A variety of factors influence the gender gap in STEM fields, however organizations such as WISE have been formed to reduce this discrepancy. We are happy to say that we will be donating 5% of our profits to encourage, promote and help women in the field of STEM.
Water and Sanitation
Water and sanitation is something incredibly important to us and we have first hand knowledge of it as this is what our degrees are in. We believe in water and we want you to do the same! 1 in 9 people lack access to safe water at home and 1 in 3 people don't have access to a toilet.
Many people don't realize that lack of proper sanitation and water distribution also has significant impacts throughout all phases of life. In many countries women and children spend their days walking to and from water sources collecting water and carrying it by hand to their homes. Solving the world's water crisis will allow women and children to focus on their education.
Every $1 invested into water has the potential to have more than $67 worth of impact and is one of the best investments you can make on improving the planet.
To help solve our planet's water crisis, we will be donating 5% of our profits to water and sanitation in addition to our pledge to help women in STEM. We encourage you all to be the change you want to see in the world and thank you for shopping with us.
"The earth, the air, the land, and the water are not an inheritance from our forefathers but on loan from our children. So we have to hand over to them at least as it was handed over to us."
