UK-based Life Pure Water is offering its Bottle for Life charitable concept to restaurants, following a successful pilot scheme. The initiative sees restaurants filling reusable glass bottles with filtered tap water and serving them to diners at £1 [US$ 1.70] each.
The money raised then goes to Life’s ‘drop4drop’ charity, which provides children in developing countries with clean drinking water. The scheme has been piloted by Due South in Brighton and Birmingham’s Kitchen Garden Café.
Over a five-month period, Due South has raised enough funds to provide more than 4,000 children with drinking water.
Drop4drop raises money for water projects being implemented by its charity partners, including Christian Aid, Water.org, Concern, Global Angels, Abaana and Potters for Peace.
