Save the World in Three Easy Steps.

1. Learn. Read this blog to learn more about our global water crisis and how it impacts billions of people.

2. Make a Scarf. Follow our easy instructions to make a beautiful and unique scarf. Wear one to show your support for those in need, and sell a few to your family and friends.
