In 2009, Green Cross International (GCI) and Pureology established an international partnership to respond to and raise awareness of the global water crisis. To achieve this goal, both organisations work together worldwide with the following main objectives:

  • Support access to water and sanitation projects in rural Ghana under the GCI’s Smart Water for Green Schools (SWGS) Initiative.
  • Raise awareness and educate the broader public on sustainability and water issues through the hair salon professional community.
  • Support Green Cross’s projects through national campaigns led by Green Cross and Pureology national organisations
