Never drink alone with a Borg & Overström water dispenser.

With every water dispenser order, Borg & Overström will donate £2.75 to Made Blue and this will be matched by the distributor.

With every dispenser donation, 19,000 litres of clean drinking water will have been made accessible to those in need, which is the average amount of water dispensed through a dispenser in its first five years.

What is my impact?

Every water dispenser provides 19,000 litres of clean drinking water, matching each glass of water poured from the dispenser with a glass of clean water to someone in need. Calculate how much your water dispenser order will help.
