Kohler Increases Donation to Habitat for Humanity

June 07, 2010

Kohler Co. has set a new ambitious goal of $2 million to help Habitat for Humanity build water-conserving homes. More than 700 homes have been built with Kohler water-saving products, and the company has pledged to donate a total of $2 million worth of product to Habitat for Humanity.

“Kohler recognizes the looming freshwater shortage facing the United States, and that saving water inside the home represents the best opportunity for a family to make a significant difference in their water consumption,” said John Engberg, manager of global media and web development at Kohler. “The Save Water America campaign is dedicated to educate homeowners and benefit Habitat for Humanity with donations of Kohler plumbing products.”

Kohler is encouraging water-savvy homeowners to log on to, a viral online campaign launched in January 2009, to help Habitat for Humanity reach the $2 million mark. Nearly every state has participated in the program, and those interested in supporting the program can view videos, become a fan on Facebook, and follow Twitter updates on the site.

Information about water-saving products is also available on the site, which includes a database of available toilet rebate programs throughout the country. These rebates, ranging from $25 to $150, help offset the cost of replacing older model fixtures.
