Stamford, CT – (February 21, 2019) – Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water, a Nestlé Waters North America brand, has become the first bottled water partner of Box Tops for Education. Together, the two brands will help schools nationwide earn funding for education initiatives.

Nestlé Pure Life has long been known for providing active families with healthy and fun beverages. Research shows that more than 50 percent of U.S. children between the ages of 6 and 19 are inadequately hydrated; highlighting the need for the consumption of more water. The partnership of these two brands

"Nestlé Pure Life’s partnership with Box Tops for Education is a natural extension of our support for families,” said Yumiko Clevenger-Lee, Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer of Nestlé Waters North America. “We are proud to make choosing water a win-win for families who want to keep their children hydrated with a healthy beverage while supporting their local schools.”

Schools can earn up to $20,000 per year by clipping Box Tops on hundreds of participating products. More than 70,000 schools use that cash to purchase items such as computers, library books, art supplies, playground equipment and more. 

In 2019, Box Tops will be featured on select Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water .5 liter 24, 28, 32 and 35 packs and on 8oz 12, 24 and 56 packs. The .5-liter bottles are perfect for families on the go, and the convenient 8oz. size is great for lunchboxes and after-school activities.

“Since 1996, Box Tops for Education has helped schools earn more than $882 million, allowing them to purchase the things they need to help their classrooms succeed. By partnering with Nestlé Pure Life, families can now earn cash for their schools just by drinking water and staying hydrated,” said Erin Anderson, Box Tops Program Manager. “This partnership ensures that schools will continue to receive unrestricted funding to help meet basic operating needs and programs that would not necessarily be possible otherwise.”

Additionally, for a limited time, Nestlé Pure Life wants to help schools earn more Box Tops to benefit their local schools. From February 18 to April 1, 10 lucky schools will each be rewarded with 10,000 bonus Box Tops, for a total of 100,000 bonus Box Tops via the Nestlé Pure Life Thirst Quenching Sweepstakes.

Nestlé Pure Life can be found at major retailers, grocery stories and through online retailers. Box Tops for Education have been clipped since 1996, earning schools more than $882 million dollars.
