Jaden Smith Is Bringing Clean Water To Flint
Jaden Smith has partnered with a church in Flint, MI to address the water crisis. His company, JUST goods, and First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church will be teaming up to bring a mobile water filtration system to Flint called “The Water Box,” the Detroit Free Press reports. This system will help to reduce lead and other contaminants in their water.
The filtration system was designed and engineered by JUST goods and the church. They recently revealed via Facebook that they are currently testing the Water Box and water samples.
“Transparency is vital for us during this process. All test and lab results will be housed on a website for public viewing,” read the church’s FB post.
The Flint water crisis made headlines back in 2014 when it was discovered that lead from the pipes was leaking into their water. Many celebrities jumped at the chance to provide the city with clean water, however the donations have began to decline. First Trinity Missionary has donated five million bottles of water alone.
Last year, Smith had began making donations through his JUST WATER company, which he owns with his father Will Smith.
