Our new Wool for Water program

Back to News & Events

Synergy supports a new CSR programme we call Wool for Water. As water is a core utility for wool textile manufacturing, we’ve aligned with international water aid charity, Just a Drop, to help deliver accessible, clean and safe water where it is needed most. 

Around the world there are an estimated 750 million people without safe water and a staggering 2.5 billion without adequate sanitation. So for every metre of Synergy we sell, we make a donation to Just a Drop, in support of a water project in Kenya. 

The first project is to build a water tank at Ikalaasa Primary School to provide clean water to 460 individuals. Our donation is kindly matched by Wools of New Zealand, with additional contributions from our wider supply chain including yarn spinners Safil and textile finishers WT Johnson & Sons. 

Individually we are one drop, but together we are an ocean. And by coming together, we get great Synergy.
