I am not totally removed from the action by being an anonymous "wallet" and handing all the action over to someone else, but I also have stuff to do other than say, making the president of Tanzania feel bad, so I can feel good and do good and do all the other things I've got going on, like blogging.

Ministry of Natural Resources (Ontario). Government of Manitoba. Government of Alberta.

Faux Cause Marketing From the CamelBak All Clear Bottle

Cause Related Marketing

So while the All Clear may be a good choice for Garrett, it’s probably not that great an option for the villagers in Tanzania unless their water is clear and unpolluted by dirt, chemical, or metal contaminants.
