If you want social networking for tap water drinkers: Join the pipe!

  • by Kitty Vallen
Let me first say "Happy Mother's Day" to all the mothers out there. Then let me share something that seems fitting for this Mother's Day: a cause my daughter turned me onto, a cause which every mother can support. Yes, it is clean water for those who need it. Again.

But JoinThePipe has done it with a clever twist. They have invented social networking for tap water drinkers, including a JoinThePipe reusable water bottle that users can link with friends, to make the "longest pipe in the world." The pipe bottles and carafes symbolize bringing clean water to any area where people are suffering and dying for that which other parts of the world have in excess. A video and image of the longest pipe and more details on how JoinThePipe grows the pipeline can be found in the extended. The aspirations and imaginative schemes will astound even the most cynical H2No-ers.
