WHOLE WORLD Water[edit]

Launched in 2013, WHOLE WORLD Water originated from a collective of creative thinkers who were seeking sustainable solutions for the Hospitality and Tourism Industry. An idea emerged where if hotels, restaurants and spas simply filtered their own local water, bottled in reusable glass bottles, sold it to their guests and donated 10% of the proceeds to the WHOLE WORLD Water Fund, they would not only be raising money for the billion people that do not have access to clean and safe drinking water, they would also be improving their bottom line.
