Word on the street has been that Jaden Smith owns his own water company called JUST. The water company is actually owned by both ICON’S Will and Jaden and it is eco-friendly.
The company has vowed to donate water each month to Flint, Michigan schools until the city’s water is drinkable again. JUST has already donated over 9,000 bottles of water to flint. The fact that Flint still does not have water is mind-blowing, and the company was, even more, shook when they find out that it was still affecting public schools.
“This just makes sense for us to do,” Laufer told MLive. “After reading more about [Flint’s] challenges and the mayor objecting to pulling bottled water from the schools, we thought, ‘Let’s help these kids.’”
Will and Jaden Smith founded JUST back in 2015 in efforts to provide a green alternative to plastic bottles and to invest in communities. The bottles are 82 percent plant-based and they are in the process of having investments in Glen Falls, New York.
We are not seeing much change or progression when it comes to the water crisis. In 2017 the EPA awarded the city with 100 million dollars to replace the water pipes and this should be completed in 2020.
