• The Drop It campaign launched on May 3rd 2016 is designed to unite individuals and the local business community in rethinking single-use plastic consumption.

    Choosing to embrace the campaign means you will not use plastic bottled water but instead filter and bottle your own, which will be used at home, in offices or in public areas. This makes an immediate positive environmental impact of reducing plastic waste and supply-chain carbon footprint.

    5% of the memberships and of the sale of the bottles goes straight to funding a Charity Water project to bring safe, drinking water to global communities. This circle will unite us all to work as one to really make a difference to the global environment.

    In house filtration meets the demand of today's consumers for environmentally sound yet quality drinking water, while it helps save money moving away from expensive bottled water to tap water.

    It is ideal for all, including the hospitality sectors: hotels, restaurants, conference centers, offices and educational establishments.
