Livpure is Rallying for Rivers with its innovative campaign

It is estimated that in 15 years, 25% of India will turn into a desert and we may have only half the water we need for our survival. These facts are astounding and equally appalling for a country whose 65% of water needs are met by these very rivers. Livpure, the water purifier manufacturer, has taken up the task of spreading awareness about this grim reality by partnering with Isha Foundation’s Rally for River Campaign.
Livpure reached out to the people of this country in an innovative way. They showed them the reality of the state of these depleting rivers through a range of six drinking water bottles representing India’s six major rivers. The bottles contained water representative of the actual level of depletion of these rivers. In addition, the bottle label was an infographic explaining the state of river in question and ways in which consumers can support the cause. For example, the bottle for the river Yamuna said “-60%” to depict the level of depletion.
To get the message out to the people, activations were carried out across the country, wherein stalls were setup and these bottles were given out as free samples. The bottles succeeded in raising awareness about the true state of our starving rivers, and made people realize that we need to take some action before our rivers dry out completely.
Speaking about the initiative, Sushil Matey, Director - Marketing, Livpure, says, “Rivers are India’s lifelines. As a water purifier brand, we are committed towards preserving them as much as possible for a better tomorrow. We believe that the only way we can salvage the current situation is by sensitizing as many people towards this cause as possible and through this small initiative of ours, it is our endeavour to reach out to people and get them involved in this movement.”
The idea has been conceptualized and executed by Famous Innovations. Siddhartha Singh, CEO, Famous Innovations, said, "It is an established fact that without rivers there will be no us. So, in order to continue our existence and sustenance it is important for us to pledge our support for this movement and do our small bit in reviving our lifelines."
The campaign got scores of people on social media rallying for our rivers. Many personalities also came out in support, including the legendary Sachin Tendulkar who tweeted, "Rivers are important and the right steps to prevent extinction must be implemented. #RiversInABottle is a great way to educate the masses. #RallyforRivers @livpurewater."
