Well… A Water Cooler Moment I couldn’t resist
Like many firms we have a water cooler, in a firm our size, its not as though we have many “water cooler moments” we don’t live in office cubicles.. anyway, the company (AquAid) that supply our water cooler are apparently building water wells in Africa. In all honesty I don’t know if this is a side issue for them or a genuine motivation, but it sounds like a good idea to me. For having a water cooler with them an “elephant pump” is being installed in Africa on our behalf. This pump will bring much needed, clean, fresh drinking water and improve the quality of life for those who will have access to the well.
I’m sure, as with most things, the motives for this are mixed, but if you are a business owner or have influence over the water cooler supplier in your office, then it seems to me that these guys are putting something back, which can’t be a bad thing.
