How is Yes We Can - Emergency Water produced?

Our Canadian water undergoes several stages of filtration and purification that include a sediment filter & propylene (5 microns), activated carbon block filter (5 microns), 5x run through reverse osmosis, and a carbon filter (1 micron). Our water then goes through 3 UV filters, ozonated for safety then infused with nitrogen before the canning process. The purified water is then packaged in aluminum cans, then hermetically sealed, boxed, palletized, wrapped, and ready to be shipped out.

What is Preparedness and why is it important?

Emergency preparedness refers to the activities – plans, procedures, contact lists, and exercises – undertaken to prepare for a likely emergency. It is important to be proactive and prepared because emergency situations such as natural disasters, severe weather events, water disruptions, or public health crises can pose significant risks to your safety and well-being.

Being prepared allows you to take necessary precautions, mitigate potential dangers, and protect yourself and your loved ones from harm. It is important for your safety and protection and your adaptability, providing you a timely response to emergency situations.

Why is it important to store water in case of an emergency?

Storing water in case of an emergency is important for several reasons:

Human Survival: The human body can only survive a few days without water, making it crucial to have a sufficient supply available during emergencies when regular water sources may be compromised or inaccessible.

Water Supply Disruptions: During emergencies, regular water supply systems can be disrupted. Water mains may break, water treatment plants may be damaged, or water sources may become contaminated. Having stored water ensures you have a safe and reliable source of drinking water until the regular supply is restored.

Sanitation and Hygiene: In emergency situations, maintaining proper sanitation and hygiene practices is crucial to prevent the spread of diseases. Having stored water allows you to maintain hygiene by washing hands, cleaning utensils, and practicing proper sanitation measures, which is essential for overall health and well-being.

Limited Access to Clean Water Sources: In some cases, access to clean water sources, such as rivers, wells, or public water fountains, may be limited or unsafe due to contamination or damage. By having stored water, you reduce the need to search for or rely on potentially unsafe water sources, ensuring you have a safe and reliable supply readily available.

Emergency Medical Needs: Water is also essential for emergency medical care. It is used for cleaning wounds, rehydrating patients, and preparing medications. Having stored water can support basic medical needs during emergencies until professional medical assistance becomes available.

Peace of Mind: Knowing that you have an adequate supply of water stored for emergencies provides peace of mind. It allows you to focus on other essential tasks and reduces anxiety during challenging situations, knowing that you and your family have access to a vital resource like water.

How should I store my emergency water?

For long term storage, it is recommended to store the cans in a dry and cool place, ideally between the temperatures of 10 and 60 degrees Celsius.

What is the "Shake to Cool" function?

Yes We Can - Emergency Water is infused with nitrogen to pressurize the cans and help keep the water molecules alive and fresh for decades. Nitrogen is one of the cryogenic liquids, that effectively displaces oxygen consequently minimizing the growth of microorganisms that cause foods to lose their freshness and perish faster. Because nitrogen is an extremely cold element, you can shake to cool the can and enjoy a “cooler” drink.

What is the "Ship When We Can" shipping model?

The “Ship When We Can” shipping model delays shipping orders until we have a large enough volume to fill a shipping container or truck, rather than shipping individual orders as they are placed. This allows us to ship in bulk to a single location, which can have several benefits:

The most important benefit is that it helps minimize the shipping costs that our customers pay. By shipping in bulk, we take advantage of economies of scale and negotiate lower shipping rates with carriers. This allows us to offer free shipping to our customers or, at the very least, pass on some of the savings in the form of lower prices. Many customers purchase in bulk and we ensure there are options to minimize or eliminate those costs.

Another benefit is that it helps us work towards our Net-Zero goal by reducing the carbon footprint of our business via more efficient shipping practices - we reduce the number of trips made by delivery vehicles, which lowers fuel consumption and emissions.

What is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse Osmosis is an advanced water purification method that was initially developed by the U.S. Navy to produce drinking water from sea water for submarine crews. The reverse osmosis filtration technology works by forcing water under pressure through the very tiny pores of a semi-permeable membrane. This filtration process was proven very highly effective in removing protozoa, bacteria, viruses, and chemicals leaving only pure H2O behind.

Why is it important to donate water to communities in need?

Donating water to communities affected by natural disasters, living in refugee camps, or at risk of droughts is extremely important for several reasons.

First and foremost, access to clean, safe drinking water is essential for human survival. Water is necessary for hydration, sanitation, and maintaining overall health. When communities are affected by natural disasters or facing other challenges that disrupt their access to water, the consequences can be severe, including illness, dehydration, and even death. Donating water can help to alleviate these issues and ensure that people have prepositioned access to the resources they need to stay healthy and hydrated.

Second, donating water can help to support the recovery and rebuilding efforts of communities affected by natural disasters or facing other challenges. When people have access to clean water, they are better able to focus on rebuilding their homes, communities, and lives, rather than worrying about where their next drink of water will come from.

Finally, donating water can help to promote long-term sustainability and resilience in the face of future challenges. By helping communities to establish reliable sources of clean water, we can help to reduce their reliance on external assistance and increase their capacity to cope with future crises.

Ultimately, donating water to communities in need is an impactful way to support communities well-being, recovery, and resilience, and it is a way that we can all make a positive impact on the world we work and live in.
