Peter Thum and Ethos Water: “Helping Children Get Clean Water”

April 4th, 2015 by and tagged , , , , ,

Elevate Christian Network :: Global Humanitarians

Elevate Christian Network :: Global Humanitarians

Peter Thum — Ethos Water:  He came up with the idea for Ethos Water in 2001 while working on a business project in South Africa.  As a business executive, social entrepreneur, and humanitarian, Thum turned his idea of getting clean water to children in the developing world into a successful social venture. Over the course of six years, he led Ethos to become a national brand in the US and to raise more than $6 million in humanitarian water grants and help over 420,000 people worldwide.

Ethos was acquired by Starbucks in 2005 and Thum stayed on through to 2008, managing Ethos and guiding its philanthropy as a Director of the Starbucks Foundation.  According to Starbucks, they donate US$0.05 per bottle sold to the Ethos Water mission to support humanitarian programs in coffee-growing communities, and providing clean, safe water to those in need.  Video source: Peter Thum on Starting Ethos
