How we make a difference!
With every bottle you purchase we donate $3 to help bring clean & safe drinking water to people in developing nations

Oil for Water

Nearly one billion people in our world do not have access to clean drinking water. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

Blue Olive Oil partners with charity : water to raise funds in order to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. There are many solutions, from deep drilled wells to water filtration systems.

Water project example: Building a borehole well with handpump costs $15,000 and serves 1,000 people, meaning that $15 will provide water to one person.

Water Facts

Nearly one billion people - that's 1 in every 6 of us - lack access to safe water.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, 1 in every 2 people live without a clean water source.

At any given time, half of the world's hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from a water-related disease.

More people have died because of poor water and sanitation than those who have died by guns in war. In fact, every 20 seconds, a child under 5 dies from a water and sanitation related illness. That's close to 5,000 children a day!

While basic needs vary, the minimum threshold of water use is 20 liters per day. Factoring in bathing and laundry needs would increase this to 50 liters per day.

Most of the nearly 1 billion people lacking access to clean water live on about 5 liters of water a day. That's about one tenth of the amount needed to flush a standard toilet.
