Advantage xPO supporting The Africa Trust
At Advantage xPO, we are aware that keeping our colleagues properly hydrated will help them perform at their very best throughout the day.
This is why we have invested in mains-fed water cooler and filtration systems from AquAid.
Switching from bottle-fed water coolers to a water filtration system in our Head Office has a number of benefits.
We are helping the environment by reducing our use of plastic, as well as doing away with the need for a van to deliver the bottles of water or collect the empty bottles.
Our relationship with AquAid has also given us the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and will be a much-needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
To date AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia, and donated over £15 million to charity.
We are proud to be part of this great initiative!
