ClearCorrect™, Houston, Tex, has launched Phase Out™, a new charitable project. The company is partnering with charity: water, an organization dedicated to bringing safe and clean drinking water to those in need.

The Phase Out initiative was inspired by ClearCorrect’s phase-based clear aligner system. Every ClearCorrect case includes a certain number of phases (a phase is a box with four sets of clear aligners). More often than not, a few phases are left over at the end of treatment. Starting January 1, 2012, for each leftover phase, the company will donate $20 towards “phasing out life-impacting issues for people in need.”

ClearCorrect’s partnership with charity: water is the first of several Phase Out initiatives the company envisions for the project. The money raised will go towards building wells and other water projects in developing nations.
