Two Bronx kids—twins Brazil and Princeton Dowe—felt that other children weren’t drinking enough water because “they didn’t see it” as they described to Pix11 News.
Their solution? Create their own bottled water company and a label that jumps out to other children.
Water 2 Kids (how can we not like that name 😉 ) is available at 17 grocery stores and delis in The Bronx but to be honest with you, this should be at EVERY bodega, supermarket, and any place water is sold.
The source for their product is from natural springs in upstate New York where it’s also bottled and then shipped to The Bronx where Aline Dowe, the kids mother, then distributes to local stores.
Kudos for these amazing Bronx kids for seeing a problem and coming up with a solution! Too much junk food and sugary drinks bombard our children every day so it shouldn’t be shocking that we’re last when it comes to health outcomes in New York State.
