Matt Damon on “Toilet Strike” for Clean Water

Well, it certainly isn’t a very practical idea, but you must give Matt and his team credit for thinking up his “Toilet Strike” as a creative and attention-getting way to get people to recognize the great clean water inequity that exists here on Mother Earth.  I mean, so MANY people do not have access to clean water or even dirty water at all…

Matt Damon on strike for clean water

Matt Damon, star of the “Bourne” movies, is on strike for clean water.

According to the United Nations, today 2.5 billion people, including almost one billion children, live without even basic sanitation. Every 20 seconds, a child dies as a result of poor sanitation. That’s 1.5 million preventable deaths each year.

That’s why at IX Power Clean Water, we’re working to develop technologies that can turn otherwise un-usable water resources into clean water that can be safely used by people, livestock and in agriculture.  Let’s end the unnecessary suffering, let’s fix this problem!

We’re with you Matt …!  We agree providing clean water for everyone is probably the single most important project that civilization can take on.

Unfortunately, I doubt any of us can “hold it” like you. But, we’ve signed up for the strike program and we’re with you in spirit, man.  We are with you in spirit …
