Can I decide how much to donate?
Yes. You decide how much water to donate per product, service or organisation. We help you decide on a story that is transparent, easy to understand and impactful. We’re ready to help and can assist in for example determining the water footprint or water saving capacity of a product, service or production chain. Contact us to learn more.
Why is there a 1,000,000 litre minimum donation required to become an ambassador to Made Blue?
We’re providing support to all of our ambassadors with lots of love and with no additional cost. We can only do so by making lots of impact while remaining small and effective as an organisation. That’s why we ask for a one million litre annual impact as a start. Of course you can also donate smaller amounts via our site.
Can I see which organisations already participate?
Yes, we are very transparent about that. You will find an overview of all our ambassadors, also in alphabetical order on this page.
May I use the Made Blue logo?
Made Blue Ambassadors are free to use the Made Blue logo on products and services the Made Blue partnership adheres to. We’d like to be informed where and when our logo is being used for purposes of impact and transparency.
