Save on water in your hotel
Saving water in your hotel, serving water in the restaurant or at events or water bottles in the hotel room?
We have a sustainable solution for you that saves money. You also contribute to our mission: clean drinking water for everyone.
Serve locally bottled water
Stop serving spring water and tap filtered, chilled and sparkling water from a tap water cooler. This is more sustainable, easier and often cheaper. We always have a suitable solution for your restaurant. Choose from our standard glassware or go for your own table water.
Offset your water use
Determine the water savings or consumption of your product, service, organization or customer and convert it into as many litres of clean drinking water. That is tangible and guaranteed and is only possible with our program One litre for one litre. Many companies preceded you.
Choose reusable bottles
Give your customers or your employees a unique reusable bottle so that they can drink sustainable water. With your custom print you make an impression and mobile add! With a Made Blue print you tell a crystal clear story. In all cases, you also provide clean drinking water with each item.
Tap chilled water at your office
Treat your employees and guests to wonderfully fresh and sparkling water from a Made Blue water cooler tap. This is more sustainable, easier and often cheaper. Each water cooler tells a story and you complete it with matching glassware and communication materials.
Donate with your company
A sponsored walk, a benefit evening or an auction? We are happy to work with you. We provide communication materials and possibly water, you ensure a great event. You can of course also donate directly, choose your liters yourself.
Make a direct and personal impact now by making a choice from the options on our donation page. Do you give a child water at school for a year or do you want to provide an entire family with access to enough water for drinking, cooking and washing for a year?
