Frequently asked questions

Why is this the best water for your clients, your business and the world?

Your guests will enjoy delicious filtered and chilled water, optionally with gas (with the intensity of your choice). You can now serve water at a good margin and higher sales volume without purchasing, storage and processing. Each litre water served will generate a thousand litres elsewhere on earth, that is sufficient for getting 50 people to have a day of clean drinking water: it is maximally effective.

How will it serve my business?

A good margin, coupled with lower purchasing and more volume sold makes for a better result.

Why is it more sustainable than bottled water?

Bottled water comes from all over the world, being transported over miles and miles. Bottles are being thrown away and recycled. Water Made Blue comes from the tap. Thus we save hundreds of transport miles and a lot of energy for recycling.

Is there a need for investment?

No. List Made Blue water on your menu for a fair price and donate 35ct for every 700ml bottle served. We’ll take care of realizing 700 litres of clean water in developing countries and will also provide you with the equipment needed for filtering, chilling and carbonating tap water at no cost. That also goes for our bottles and communication materials of course.
By serving Made Blue, there’s no longer the need to purchase expensive bottled water.  The donation to Made Blue Foundation is tax deductible and is rather low compared to the fair price guests are willing to pay for nicely tasting water, presented in a beautiful bottle with compelling story. Participating restaurants experience an increase in water turnover with a sound profit margin: that makes Made Blue water the best water for your guests, your business and the planet!

Can I have some example figures?

Example 1: you serve Made Blue water, still and sparkling, for €4 using our 700ml bottle. When you donate 35ct for every bottle served, we’ll take care of realizing 700 litres of clean water in developing countries and will also provide you with the equipment needed for filtering, chilling and carbonating tap water at no cost. That also goes for our bottles and communication materials of course. Your gross margin per bottle served is €3,65.

Example 2: you serve Made Blue water, still and sparkling, for €4 using our 700ml bottle. When you donate 21ct for every bottle served, we’ll take care of realizing 700 litres of clean water in developing countries and will also provide you with communication materials at no cost. If required, the equipment needed for filtering, chilling and carbonating tap water and bottles are available at cost price. Your gross margin per bottle served is €3,79.

What are the requirements with respect to duration and volume?

None. You serve Made Blue water to your guests and report at the end of each month the total number of litres served. Based on that number, Made Blue Foundation will make available a donation request and produce a certificate stating the total amount of clean drinking water made available in developing countries.
Participating hotels and restaurants serve Made Blue water because guests love the taste and story of our beautiful water, because the business case that comes along with it and because of its great impact on the planet.
A binding contract with respect to volume and duration does not fit our model. If it does not or no longer work for your business you may say goodbye to us at any moment.

Is my business not too small or too large for this?

Made Blue water is being served in restaurants with 15 to 1.500 bottles in circulation. For every type of business, Made Blue will provide for a suitable and successful implementation, ranging from pub to hotel and from restaurant to sauna.

Can Made Blue be served in banqueting as well?

Yes: add Made Blue to your meeting package and serve the most sustainable still and sparkling water to your guests or colleagues. On your behalf Made Blue realizes a thousand litres of clean water in developing countries for every participant in the meeting. Of course we provide you with the right equipment and communications materials, in some cases even free of charge.

What other materials does Made Blue provide?

Of course we support free of charge with communications materials such as thank-you-cards that go with the bill, posters, bottle cards et cetera. We also provide in beautiful bottles with custom print, always at cost price or free of charge under certain conditions. With reusable bottles and bottled waters, we ensure guest satisfaction at check-in/out and at events.

What is a tap water installation?

There are many water chillers available that filter, cool and sparkle tap water. Made Blue can be used with any installation.

Do I need a tap water installation?

We would say yes: our equipment enables you to serve (filtered) chilled and carbonated water at the right temperature. You can also choose to serve Made Blue water in our open carafe, with ice, mint, lemon et cetera. In that case additional equipment is not needed.

We already serve our own water, why join?

Serving 1.000 times as much clean water in developing countries is not only impressive, but also increases the willingness to pay a fair price for beautifully served water. A tax-deductible donation (21 cents for a 700ml bottle in order to guarantee 700 liters of clean water elsewhere) provides for a unique and tangible story with excellent pricing opportunities.

More importantly: participating restaurants annually donate millions of liters of clean water elsewhere on the planet, realizing a maximum score on impact and sustainability.

Are for-profit alternatives a better buy?

No. As a charitable organization, Made Blue can procure sustainable and high quality equipment at low cost and because Made Blue does not strive towards making a profit, we can make that equipment available at the same cost to restaurants serving our water.
Even in cases where a donation to Made Blue to ensure a 1.000x as much clean water in developing countries is not possible or fitting, we are still happy to provide you with all equipment needed to serve filtered, chilled and carbonated water in the most sustainable way.
