Michael Phelps is arguably one of the most famous athletes and new dads of all-time. And with his second Father’s Day around the corner, he has dedicated himself to working toward a healthy future for his son Boomer. That is why he has joined Colgate’s ‘Save Water’ program to help raise awareness about water conservation and to inspire the next generation to take action.
Together with Phelps and The Nature Conservancy, Colgate’s 2017 mission is to reach 100 million people and inspire 10 million children to turn off the faucet while brushing, because every drop counts.
Did you know that the average American can waste up to four gallons of potable drinking water while leaving the faucet on when brushing his or her teeth for two minutes? Or that one in ten people worldwide lack access to clean water?
“Water is the earth’s most precious resource, but without realizing it we often take it for granted,”
Phelps said. “I’m committed to joining Colgate’s efforts to save water and encouraging the next generation to turn off the faucet. Our son Boomer just turned one, so he isn’t brushing his teeth on his own quite yet, but we’ll teach him to as soon as he does!”
In addition to turning off the faucet while brushing, individuals can spread awareness using #EveryDropCounts on social media and by learning more at www.EveryDropCounts.Colgate.com.
This Father’s Day, turn off the faucet for your family and their future.
