MMA Fighter Justin Wren Joins Jasco at CES 2017 for Launch of Eco Survivor Outdoor Tech Gear to Help Fight the Global Water Crisis

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ByJasco–Jasco Products, leader in consumer electronics, LED lighting, and
mobility products, announced today they are partnering with professional
athlete and MMA fighter, Justin Wren, at CES 2017. To kick off the
partnership and raise awareness of the global water crisis, Jasco is
hosting Justin Wren as a special guest and brand collaborator for the
new line of Eco Survivor outdoor tech accessories, including rugged
ultra-bright lanterns, waterproof mobile power packs, Bluetooth
speakers, and more launching at CES. Wren will discuss his charity,
Fight for the Forgotten, sign autographs and be available for photos at
designated hours in the Jasco booth. CES attendees can join the fight to
help end the global water crisis by visiting booth #12000 (Central Hall).


Jasco is helping the fight to end the water crisis by pledging 50
percent of Eco Survivor proceeds to clean water projects. Eco Survivor
products are about capturing the spirit of rugged durability, overcoming
the elements and standing up to life’s many challenges. The biggest
challenge for millions of people today is access to clean water that is
often directly beneath their feet. The global water crisis claims 3.4
million lives each year.

Jasco’s ‘Giving Hope’ Foundation works with a number of non-profits
including Water4, which empowers Justin Wren’s initiative, Fight for the
Forgotten, to help achieve the mutual goal to solve the global water
crisis in our lifetime. Through the collaborative impact platform, the
Giving Hope Foundation has helped raise over $1 million for clean water
projects in the past three years.

Many know Justin Wren as a national champion wrestler who became a UFC
fighter. Wren now prefers to be known as “The Big Pygmy.” A mission trip
to the Congo several years ago changed his life forever. His new fight
in life became freeing the Mbuti Pygmy tribe from modern day slavery,
who were without a voice or access to clean water. Justin partnered with
Water4 to provide that, and they ultimately joined forces. Wren and
Water4 have established over 55 water wells and purchased 3,000 acres on
which large numbers of Pygmies now live freely.

“The land purchases were huge,” Wren added. “Giving them some land of
their own that they could be free on — but water was what really
softened the hearts of their oppressors. There are really two
innovations to this sustainable method for drilling wells. One is a pump
system that can be made using locally available and relatively
inexpensive materials, and the second is training the locals to expand
sustainable wells themselves, which not only provides clean water, but
also provides them a livelihood.”
