Red Canyon Water! How Hotels and Coffee Shops Can Solve the Drinking Water Crisis in Indian Country While Also Increasing Customer Loyalty

It would shock most to learn that of the 170,000 residents on the Navajo Nation in the Southwestern United States, nearly 40% lack running water.   That is a sobering statistic and one that most living outside of the reservation cannot fathom.  And that is just the Navajo Nation. In fact, tribal homes in the United States lack access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation at a rate of more than 20 times the national average.

How can you help?

The answer is relatively simple – carry Red CanyonTM Bottled Water.  For every bottle we sell, we will donate $.12 to the Navajo Water Project (, which provides clean drinking water to families on the Navajo Reservation.

Why carrying Red Canyon Water is good for business.
