LISBON, Portugal (Thursday, October 20, 2011) – ASP World Tour athlete and 1% For The Planet Ambassador Dan Ross (AUS), 28, has launched an environmental, humanitarian and health campaign which will complete on the 11th of November, 2011.

“Now is a great time to buy a water filtration system as we’re running an initiative called “One Bottle for Life – Operation Monsoon”, which is the 1st of what will become an ongoing global movement to drastically reduce plastic pollution whilst giving Advanced Water Filters to aid,” said Dan Ross.

www.onebottleforlife.com is a collaborative effort between FreshMullet.com, Alkaway.com.au (Filtration specialists), The Sumba Foundation in Indonesia (a humanitarian organisation) and One Percent for The Planet (a global environmental organisation representing over 1500 companies).

Almost half of the 600,000 Sumbanese people, just 500kms north of Australia, lack access to safe water. Waterborne disease dramatically escalates come December, when the monsoon season hits and this is a major cause of their high child mortality rate.

One Bottle For Life is about your health, their survival and our planet…You buy a Water Filtration Pack , consisting of 1 AlkaStream and 2 Fill2Pure refillable filtering bottles for $475 (normally $500) and we donate a Filter Pump & 10 Advanced Filters(valued at $365) which provides 4000 litres of safe water to Sumba for aid. By adopting a reusable bottle and bench top filter we drastically reduce plastic bottles from entering our environment.

“Please help us achieve our OPERATION MONSOON goal of Selling 1000 Water Filtration Packs which will prevent 8 million plastic bottles from entering the environment and donate 4 million litres of safe water to aid,” Ross said. “You can save money, save lives and save the planet.”
