Faucet Face helps communities in India who are so remote that the government does not provide them with plumbing, so the people living in those areas are forced to use the nearby river which is contaminated with all sort of parasites and bacteria that can be lethal to humans and especially to children. With their 1 for 100 scheme, Faucet Face donates 2.5 percent of their profit to these people who are in need of clean water, and it also donates a clean water filter - which prevents parasites from getting through - for every five bottles of their water purchased.
