One litre for one litre

Convert the water usage or water savings of your organisation, product or service into an equal amount of clean drinking water made available in developing countries.

Thanks to the ONE LITRE FOR ONE LITRE program, the water saving features of our product or service are highlighted and converted to an equal amount of clean water made available elsewhere on the planet!

Ambassadors of ONE LITRE FOR ONE LITRE calculate their water saving or water usage per product, organisation or service. By means of a donation to Made Blue Foundation, we ensure that an equal amount of clean water is made available in those places on earth where it matters most.

You already find our ONE LITRE FOR ONE LITRE program on for example all MAAS coffeemachines, the Quooker boiling water taps and at the in-company restaurants, facilitated by Eurest. Per bottle sold O2life provides 5 litres. When using the water-efficient cleaning machines of  Tennant and I-Team Global, clean water is donated over every machine. A variety of cleaning companies also support the program, for example  Blankers Schoon. Check out more ambassadors!

people still have no acces to clean drinking water today. These people lack a fundamental need for a healthy and prosperous life.

Often women and girls are responsible for collecting (even polluted) water, taking a large part out of everyday life, wasting time that otherwise could have been spent on school, work or caring for a family.

people are estimated to die every day from the consequences of consuming polluted water.

That is why we work towards access to clean water for all, today, every day. Join Made Blue as a company and discover the power of teaming up with a charity that is built on entrepreneurship, effectiveness and transparency.
