What you can do

Do you want to contribute to our mission too?
You can do so in many more ways than to donate.
Take a look at how you can support us.

Offset you water consumption or mirror your water savings

Determine the water savings or consumption of your product, service, organization or customer and convert it into as many liters 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.

Serve locally bottled water in your restaurant

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.

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.

Stop using packaged water and go for printed 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 and sparkling water at your office

Treat your employees and guests to wonderfully fresh and sparkling water from a Made Blue tap water cooler. 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.
