Flint, Michigan has now been without safe water since April 2014. That is nearly five whole years!

As the populace has to continue to use bottled water for nearly everything, including bathing, Just Water is providing a way to ease the burden of buying bottled water.


Just Water was founded by Jaden and his father, Will Smith.

Jaden is best known for his singing and acting career, but lately he has been focusing more on Just Water and its mission to provide an environmentally friendly, sustainable alternative to traditional bottled water.


Smith recently delivered a mobile water filtration system, called the Water Box, to First Trinity Church in Flint. The system will remove the dangerous amounts of lead from the water and allow residents to use it safely.

Residents will be able to filter as much water through the machine as they need once a week.

Jaden's mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, tweeted about delivering the Water Box to First Trinity Church.

Jada also thanked the church for trusting her son to work with them in their efforts to help the community.

They have also partnered with organizations such as the Last Kilometer, Rethink H20, Black Millennials for Flint, and 501CThree in their push to get Flint safe drinking water again.

Twitter users loved that Jaden and family were using their wealth to affect real, positive change in the world.





The Water Box won't replace having a municipal water system that provides water that is safe to drink, cook with, or even bathe in, but it is a step above the current situation in Flint.
