Washbox Announces Global Partnership with Water.org on World Water Day

Australia – 22 March, 2024


Today, on World Water Day, Washbox, the award-winning innovator in construction technology, is proud to announce a transformative partnership with Water.org, a global non-profit dedicated to providing access to safe water and sanitation to families living in poverty.

 

This collaboration represents a significant step forward in Washbox's mission to innovate and promote sustainability in the construction industry, aligning two organisations committed to making a positive global impact.

 

Washbox is the only multi-trade tool, closed-loop wash station for construction projects.

 

By recycling wash water from painters, plasterers, tilers, blocklayers, and all wet trades, Washbox saves 98% of the water normally used by trades and completely eliminates the discharge of liquid waste pollution to the environment.

 

Andrew Crimston, Founder and CEO of Washbox, highlighted the significance of the partnership.

 

"At Washbox, we envision a construction industry that prioritises sustainability.

 

“Our goal is to inspire world builders everywhere, to enable them to be the stewards of their own environmental impact and drive better project outcomes for the community as a whole. Mr Crimston said.

 

Through the partnership with Water.org, Washbox's measurable achievements in sustainability will translate into real-world change.

 

For every week of Washbox hire globally and every 1,000 litres of water saved, Washbox will make a donation to Water.org on behalf of construction project teams and their clients, contributing to Water.org's mission of helping people in need get access to safe water and sanitation through affordable financing.

 

Melanie Mendrys, Global Director of Brand and Marketing for Water.org expressed gratitude for the partnership, emphasising the importance of collaboration to help solve the global water crisis.


“Around the world, 1 in 4 people lack access to safe water and 2 in 5 lack access to a safe toilet. We are grateful for the support of partners like Washbox to help change this.

 

“Together, we will empower families in need with lasting access to safe water at home, and the hope, health and opportunity that flow from it,” Ms Mendrys said.

 

Used on a diverse range of construction projects globally, from residential developments to large-scale infrastructure works, Washbox promotes sustainable construction practices.

 

Its versatility and effectiveness make it an essential tool for any project seeking to minimise environmental impact and enhance productivity.

 

Crimston added, "Our technology is designed to be easily integrated into any construction project, providing a seamless solution for sustainable water management.

 

“On construction sites, trades often wash their tools in drinking water, resulting in a tremendous waste of resources.

 

“Washbox addresses this issue by saving water and preventing the discharge of contaminated water into the environment.

 

"We are proud to partner with Water.org, an organisation that shares our vision of a better world.

 

“Together, we are taking meaningful steps towards a future where sustainable practices are the norm, and access to safe water is a reality for all," Crimston concluded.

 

Washbox has been recognised for its commitment to sustainability and innovation in the construction industry with several prestigious awards.

 

The company won the Product Category at the Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP) Awards and was named among the Top 10 Green Building Products by BuildingGreen, Inc.

 

Additionally, Washbox was honoured as a global Top Innovator in the UpLink - World Economic Forum's Urban Sustainability Challenge and was a winner in the Ocean Impact Organisation's INNOVOCEAN 2023, securing the overall 1st Runner Up position and the Plastic Pollution Spotlight Award for its benefits in eliminating microplastic pollution of waterways.
