Elliot for Water works just like any other search engine yet it also helps provide people in need of drinkable water with exactly that every time you search.
The search engine’s mission is to help bring drinkable water to as many people as possible and to improve the quality of life, while respecting the needs of the local culture and environment.
One fifth of the global population has no access to clean water, leading to death of around 6,000 people per day due to water-related diseases.
Each time a person uses the Elliot for Water search engine, it enables the company to bring safe drinking water to developing countries by allocating its ad revenue to projects such as Solwa Technologies, a start up that works in “green technology” sectors for the environmental sustainability and the protection of natural resources.
Elliot For Water donates 60% of its profits to buy Solwa Technologies, solar energy based products that purify dirty or polluted water through desalination, the irrigation of arid grounds, and the dehydration of food. The company is currently working on a project in Guinea-Bissau, Africa.
Set up by Andrea Demichelis, Elliot for Water aims to bring water to one million people by 2025, and to improve the quality of life, while respecting the needs of the local culture and environment.
Anyone can support Elliott for Water by choosing it as a default search engine.
