Saving the world — one bottle of water at a time.

One and a half million children die each year from a lack of safe drinking water. But here's how we're fighting back by working with Life Water.

Building access to clean water.

Did you know that 748 million people in the world don’t have access to safe, clean water? In terms of the global population, that amounts to one in nine people. One in nine people who collectively walk around 200 million miles every day to collect drinking water that’s often dirty and unsafe.

Everyone deserves to have clean water to drink, bathe and cook with. That’s why we’re working with Life Water to bring wells to communities in the developing world. Every bottle of Life Water we sell goes a little way toward building new sources of clean water for the people who need them most.

We’re proud to say that so far we’ve helped to bring over 1,000 people a sustainable source of safe, clean water — improving their lives and their prospects for a brighter future. But there’s more we can do…

Building better lives.

We’ll continue to sponsor new wells next year, helping even more communities save thousands of hours every week by not having to travel to find fresh water. This will mean that more people can work productively, while children can use that time to enjoy an education at school.

And more than that, we’ll help to further reduce the number of deaths caused by the consumption of unsafe water. By continuing to work alongside Life Water, we’re bringing the whole world to life through safer, cleaner water.
