In 2018 after a terrible drought, Cape Town, South Africa almost reached Day Zero, a day when all of the taps would be shut off.
Kimberly-Clark uses a lot of water in its manufacturing process and has mills located in Cape Town as well as 11 other water-stressed regions. If an area is without water not only does it affect the manufacturing plant, but it also affects Kimberly-Clark's employees and the surrounding neighborhoods.
In an attempt to help solve the water crisis and help the community, the company hosted a workshop with various residents, NGO's, academics, and government officials at its plant in Cape Town, which we documented in this piece.
