After traveling to Haiti to help with the relief effort following the 2010 earthquake, Jeff and Jackie Bird were dismayed by the fact that so many people there still lacked clean water, and were forced to collect their drinking water from local rivers and streams which are polluted with trash, waste and chemicals. This meant the rapid and continued spread of preventable disease. Upon their return to the US, Epic International and its line of exclusive Epic Timepieces was launched. Through the sale of unique socially responsible watches, Epic is providing clean drinking water to people in developing countries.
The stylish and elegantly hip timepieces available on the Epic website come in a wide variety of color combinations, from simple black and whites to bold and vibrant hot pinks and neons and feature interchangeable bands. These socially responsible watches – aptly named “Catalyst” – would make the perfect addition to any wardrobe. Mix and match to find the perfect look! The best part about Epic Timepieces is the fact that for every socially responsible watch purchased, Epic will provide the resources needed to generate clean drinking water for an individual in a developing country for an entire year.
The facts are staggering. According to the Epic website, nearly 1 billion people in the world do not have access to clean water and just about every 19 seconds a child dies from a water-borne illness. Epic Timepieces wants to change this. With the help of their customers, Epic is able to distribute ceramic water filters that are capable of eliminating more than a dozen dangerous diseases including E-Coli, Diphtheria and Vibrio Cholerae. With a socially responsible watch from Epic Timepieces, we all have a chance to be a “catalyst” for change and make a life-saving difference to those in need.
