LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- O.N.E.™ Coconut Water, a leading producer of all-natural healthy Coconut Water beverages, is excited to announce their continued partnership with Healthy Child Healthy World, the nation's leading environmental health non-profit dedicated to preventing childhood exposure to harmful chemicals that exist in everyday life. To celebrate the renewal, O.N.E. Coconut Water launched a national campaign today to bring awareness to the importance of cleaner, greener home products for families and children.
Inaugurating today, on Earth Day, O.N.E. Coconut Water will give $1 to Healthy Child Healthy World for every "like" O.N.E. receives on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/onecoconutwater.

O.N.E. Coconut Water was founded on a platform of Conscious Business, and for over five years has been providing families with naturally hydrating, preservative-free, nutritious beverage options packed with potassium and other essential electrolytes. Deepening its alignment with Healthy Child Healthy World and its commitment to producing products that boost health and wellness without added chemicals, synthetic additives or artificial ingredients, O.N.E. recently became the first and only mainstay premium coconut water brand to be certified 100% organic by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
"We are very proud of our relationship with Healthy Child Healthy World and will continue to join them in efforts to further educate families about the importance of protecting children from environmental hazards commonly found in household products, food and beverages," said O.N.E. Founder and CEO Rodrigo Veloso. "With this campaign, our goal is to generate funding to support ongoing educational programming about ways consumers can eliminate exposure to toxins in home products and in their communities."
Healthy Child Healthy World Interim Executive Director/CEO, Rachel Sarnoff comments, "O.N.E. Coconut Water is a long time trusted partner of our organization and one that we are very proud of. Together we are committed to taking action to create a cleaner, greener world for our children. Through funding from this campaign, we intend to expand public awareness through educational and media outreach, community engagement, events, and medical research."

About Healthy Child Healthy World
Healthy Child Healthy World is a national, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that inspires parents to protect young children from harmful chemicals. The organization exists because more than 125 million Americans, predominantly children, now face a historically unprecedented rise in chronic diseases and illnesses such as cancer, autism, asthma, allergies, birth defects, ADHD, obesity, diabetes, and learning and developmental disabilities. Credible scientific evidence increasingly points to environmental hazards and household chemicals as causing and contributing to many of these diseases. Healthy Child Healthy World aims to educate parents, support protective policies and engage communities to make responsible decisions, simple everyday choices and well-informed lifestyle improvements to create healthy environments where children and families can flourish.
