Water in hotels

Saving water in your hotel, serving water in the restaurant or water bottles in the hotel room?
We have a sustainable solutions for you that also saves money and help you achieve sustainable quality marks.
Meanwhile you also contribute to our mission: clean drinking water for everyone.

Save water in your hotel

Water is becoming a major expense for an average hotel with current gas prices.
What if you could convince guests to take a shorter shower in combination with some water-saving techniques?

Enjoy water…

With a few water-saving techniques that do not lead to less comfort, you can already save a lot of water in the hotel room. The investment quickly pays for itself. Many of our ambassadors can help you with this.

It will be even better if you can communicate about this in such a way that the guest also contributes by taking shorter showers. This is possible in our Save Water to Give Water program.

This way you save water and money and you donate for clean drinking water in developing countries.

…to give water

We help you save an average of 100 liters of water per hotel stay and then donate those liters to one of our water projects. For example, every overnight stay provides a whole day of clean drinking water for a family in Uganda or Bangladesh, for example.

We have calculated that your guest needs to shower 12 seconds shorter on average to recoup this donation. Every extra second or water-saving technology immediately yields money.

Sustainability in your hotel

Do you want to make your hotel more sustainable? With this program you save water and energy. This way you give substance to sustainable quality marks such as Green Globe, Green Key, the EKO Quality Mark and you have a chance to win a Gaia Green Award.Read here why…

This also applies to serving locally bottled water and reusable bottles in the hotel room. You can read all about that below.

May we help you work more sustainably and in the meantime save money while also contributing to our mission?

Water in the hotel room

Water in the hotel room is part of it, but it does create a lot of waste and deposits have made PET bottles expensive.
We have the perfect alternative: a reusable, sustainable water bottle that guests can fill themselves in the lobby.

The Bottle Made Blue

A reusable water bottle made of indestructible Tritan: rock-hard, crystal clear and unbreakable. The bottle is BPA-free, made in the Netherlands, recyclable and dishwasher safe.

Never before has a reusable water bottle of this quality been so affordable and completely customizable: available from €1.50 each.

Most importantly, each bottle provides 500 litres of clean drinking water in our water projects! At least 3.5 kg of CO2 emissions are also saved and more than 4 kg of plastic waste is avoided. Read how it works here…

Free water tap

Let your guests fill their own bottle with filtered (and cooled) tap water, that’s so sustainable! It also saves you a lot of work and you have a nice communication point, such as this example from Novotel Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

A water tap is available at cost, or can be borrowed including maintenance and service. In combination with the use of the Bottle Made Blue, we are even able to offer the tap for free under certain conditions.


This many people still do not have access to clean drinking water. They have a day job fetching water. Water that is often still polluted, too, resulting in many diseases and child deaths. We want to do something about that, but in a way that works sustainably for everyone.

Serve water

You may still serve spring water in your restaurant or at events. That can be a lot more sustainable!
Serve locally cooled and sparkling water from a water cooler into your own stylish water bottles.
This way you have your own table water, you save costs and you donate clean drinking water.

Water coolers

At Made Blue you can buy or rent a water dispenser at cost. We connect it to the water supply for you and from that moment on you tap local, cooled and sparkling water.

There is a water cooler for every situation, on or under the worktop, even on the wall. We can connect to an existing tap tower ourselves.

Guests are unanimously enthusiastic about the quality of the water and are willing to pay for water because of the story on the bottle.


Choose your own design and create your own table water. If desired, add our bottle hangers for more communication.

Or go for our standard glassware with a clear message: 1000 times as much clean drinking water.

We have several types of bottles and carafes and matching dishwasher baskets to keep them clean.


Are guests willing to pay for tap water? We’ve conducted an independent research showing guests are willing to pay up to 75% more for water with a distinctive story.
